India and Pakistan sign an agreement promising to protect religious minorities and reduce religious violence.

The Liaquat–Nehru Pact, signed by Pakistan's Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan and Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in New Delhi, is created after six days of talks and creates a "bill of rights" for religious minorities in both nations: freedom of movement, freedom of speech, freedom of worship, and freedom of occupation.
