The History

In the beginning of the 1900's, Pakistan was part of India under the rule of Great Britain. They did not want to be part of the Hindus so they drew a line and started to separate in 1940. Because of this, hundreds of thousands of people die because of violence and millions become homeless. Also in 1948, Muhammed Ali Jinnah died which made the first war with India over the territory of Kashmir. In the 1950s Pakistan becomes an Islamic republic and General Ayyub Khan becomes president. In 1970 West Pakistan and East Pakistan start to have tensions and East Pakistan attemps to secede which leads to a civil war. They succeed and East Pakistan becomes Bangladesh. Pakistan goes on to modern day and all of the things that are happening there.

The Culture

Pakistani culture is based off a lot of Indian culture and other middle eastern cultures. Most of them believe in Islam so they also base a lot of their culture off of it. Their foods are mostly rice dishes but the rice is bigger than India's dishes. They also normally don't serve it with pork as pork is bad in Islam beliefs. They typically wear what is common in the middle east, salwar kameez. For transport they have buses, monorails, and lots of cars.

Statistics

Statistics in Society

These statistics play a place in society as they have one of the highest populations. The religion really dictates what they do in life. The death rate and infant mortality rates show that Pakistan is still a developing country. The literacy rate also shows this.
