Why did the Muslims find the partition of Bengal suited their interests.
Lord Curzon partitioned Bengal on the pretext that Bengal was too big as an administrative unit, therefore he wanted a division. But the real motive was to separate Muslims from Hindus and create communal feelings between them was the ulterior motive of the British Government. Partition of Bengal gave the Muslims community a new impetus for their political activities. The Muslims considered the newly carved province of the Muslim majority as a source of their strength and also as a center of their political activity.
