Dibyesh Anand, a professor at the University of Westminster in London, who has written about India’s plan to incorporate Kashmir into a Hindu nation, said: “While it was fashionable to contrast democratic India with authoritarian China, the reality is that when it comes to occupying and governing territories and peoples that have contested relations with the mainland, both the countries have adopted measures including promise of autonomy, reality of assimilation, suppression of rights, denial of self-determination, and absence of consensual rule.” Anand argues that as well as divide and rule, the British Empire pursued a policy of “divide and quit.” This left behind unsatisfactory arrangements that were likely to ferment into conflict later down the line.

 Yeah, it was never going to end well. We've seen the same problem elsewhere in the world.

Would be interested to know whether the British government ever monitored situations in India, the Holy Land and other places they left. By which I mean physical boots on the ground, not highly paid ambassadors in central/west London.

Very true. And it wasn't by mistake or inadvertant. These forever conflict zones they have created are planned for and supply them with a multitude of resources from arms deals to brain drain.
