What was the concept of two nation theory?

The Two-Nation theory stated that Hindus and Muslims in India are two distinct communities that could not exist within a single state without dominating and discriminating against the other or without constant conflict.

It was the principal reason that led to the partition of India in 1947. The state of India officially rejected the two-nation theory and chose to be a secular state, enshrining the concepts of religious pluralism and composite nationalism in its constitution.
