The emergence of nationalism in the Indian sub-continent was determined and conditioned by the nature of the transformation of the Indian economy under the British Rule. The stability of the Indian social structure, based on the Asiatic mode of production, was disrupted by the capitalist penetration of the British imperialism. This led to the formation of new social classes. The uneven development of the bourgeoisie among the Hindus and Muslims in India resulted in the creation of two states -- India and Pakistan. The same phenomenon -- the underdevelopment of the capitalist class in East Pakistan -- led to the emergence of Bangladesh nationalism.
