Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 6 January 2023[edit]

I wanna edit India page

  • Sorry, that's not possible for you at the moment. You will need at least 500 Wikipedia edits and 30 or more days as an editor. Black Kite (talk) 00:27, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Independence and partition[edit]

The following paragraph on lead should be modified:-

"A pioneering and influential nationalist movement emerged, which was noted for nonviolent resistance and became the major factor in ending British rule.[53][54] In 1947 the British Indian Empire was partitioned into two independent dominions,[55][56][57][58] a Hindu-majority Dominion of India and a Muslim-majority Dominion of Pakistan, amid large-scale loss of life and an unprecedented migration.[59]"

  • It fails to mention Mahatma Gandhi who led the "nonviolent resistance". He was mentioned until 2019.[1]
  • "Hindu majority" with "Dominion of India" is wrong, because India did not support religion based partition. We can also remove "Muslim-majority" for Pakistan if necessary.
  • "large-scale loss of life and unprecendented migration" is also wrong, because violence was expected and arrangements were made to quell violence before migration happened.[2][3]

I believe this part should be modified to:-

"A pioneering and influential nationalist movement led by Mahatma Gandhi emerged, which was noted for nonviolent resistance and it became the major factor in ending British rule.[53][54] In 1947 the British Indian Empire was partitioned into two independent dominions,[55][56][57][58] Dominion of India and Dominion of Pakistan.[59]"

  • I'm fine with adding Mahatma Gandhi. I think we should keep "Hindu-majority" and "Muslim-majority" because that was the basis for partition. And, we should keep the loss of life and migration because they were significant, perhaps the most salient, aspect of partition and the emergence of the two nations. --RegentsPark (comment) 14:39, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

India economic/development status[edit]

Do you think we should add at the top, "India is a developing country ranked 132nd in the Human Development Index". There is no mention of India's economic or developmental status in the entire lead, in all the countries articles it is mentioned what is the economic / development of the country . what do you think?

India to surpass China as most populous country in 2023, UN report says[edit]

Change "It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country, and the most populous democracy in the world." to "It is the seventh-largest country by area, the most populous country, as well as most populous democracy in the world." India is now the most populous country according to UN and many other prominent sources. [1] Indo British Wikipedian (talk) 07:07, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Indo British Wikipedian: You're being selective with your quotation. The sources you give state "India set to surpass...", where "set to surpass" ≠ "has surpassed". So currently, it is not the most populous country in the world. When it is, and you can provide more than one reliable source stating that it is, then the article can be changed.
