Explain the following statements with reasons:

Junagadh merged within India.

Answer :

Junagadh was a princely state in India administered by the Babai dynasty. It is located near Gujarat. It was merged with the Indian union in 1948. After the independence of the country in 1947, the British government gave a choice to the princely states to either join India or Pakistan or remain independent. The Nawab of Junagadh decided to join Pakistan. On 13 September 1947, Pakistan accepted the accession of the state. But the majority of Hindus belonging there revolted against the decision and resulted in a lot of violence. The Indian army annexed the state on 1 November 1947. This culminated in a referendum in February 1948. Majority of the citizens voted for Junagadh's integration with India. Thus, Junagadh became a part of India from 1948.
