The results were disastrous as there was much violence and created a conflict between the citizens of the country that they left which was left behind without collected them with themselves. Muslims fled to Pakistan and the Hindus and Sikhs fled to India. Many of the citizens from both the countries left their properties and all their possessions just to avoid violence and fled to their new country.
