Partition of Bengal was announced by LORD CURZON in July 1905 and it took place in 16 OCT 1905. This partition led to the separation of largely Muslim eastern areas from the largely Hindu western areas. Curzon stated that eastern area was neglected and was undeveloped. Hindus were against the partition and Muslims were in its support. But there was hidden agenda of Lord Curzon behind this partition as he was applying the "divide and rule policy" to secure their rule. As Britishers were afraid with the growing efforts of Indian National Congress for getting Independence.
