28. There's a big difference there.
India was a colony. If you go by the analogy of India, remember that the United Sates was a collection of British colonies too, then we gained independence just like India and Pakistan did. All the while European settlers committed genocide and ethnic cleansing against Native Americans and enslaved Africans. It was quite a history.
