Modern diplomatic immunity was codified as international law in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (1961) which has been ratified by all but a handful of nations, though the concept and custom of such immunity have a much longer history dating back thousands of years.

Modern India
The HISTORY OF THE REPUBLIC OF INDIA begins on 26 January 1950. The country became an independent nation within the British Commonwealth on 15 August 1947. Concurrently the Muslim-majority northwest and east of British India was separated into the Dominion of Pakistan , by the partition of India . The partition led to a population transfer of more than 10 million people between India and Pakistan and the death of about one million people. Indian National Congress leader Jawaharlal Nehru became the first Prime Minister of India , but the leader most associated with the independence struggle , Mahatma Gandhi , accepted no office. The new constitution of 1950 made India a secular and a democratic state. The nation faced religious violence , casteism , naxalism , terrorism and regional separatist insurgencies, especially in Jammu and Kashmir and northeastern India
