The concept of IPBRA ( Indo-Pak-Bangla reunification under a secular govt. Association ) is totally different from the idea of 'Akhand Bharat' of RSS, which contemplates a Hindu dominated India. Our idea is of a secular united india.
India and Pakistan are really one nation. We speak the same language Hindustani ( though indians call it Hindi, and the Pakistanis call it Urdu ), we look like each other, we share the same culture.
The Partition of 1947, on the basis of the bogus two nation theory ( that Hindus and Muslims are two separate nations ), was a historical swindle by the British, acting through their agents Gandhi and Jinnah, which caused enormous suffering to the people of the sub continent.
We were befooled by the Britishers, but how much longer must we remain befooled ? How much longer must blood flow between us ? How much longer must we waste our precious resources in buying foreign arms to fight each other ?
Victor Hugo said,
"There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come."
The idea of reunification of India under a secular govt. is an idea whose time has come.
