History and Charter


The Indian Reunification Association (IRA) was founded by Markandey Katju and Yuhunna Lakhnavi on 5 February 2019 in order to reunify what is now Pakistan and Bangladesh with India. The idea of this organization was conceived by Katju, a Justice of the Supreme Court of India, in 2016 and it has received a significant amount of media coverage since that time in newspapers such as The Huffington PostKashmir LifeThe NationThe Times of IndiaThe HinduIndica NewsBusiness LineThe Indian Express, among others. Since then, we have received a significant amount of support from those living in what is now Pakistan, Bangladesh, as well as in India, for Indian Reunification. We hope that you will join us to make this dream a reality.
