The Islamic Republic of Pakistan

Pakistan, a country in the west of Asia, right there where the Himalayas push to make the roof of the world, is a country with around 180 million people.  It has a functioning democratic government and a functioning judiciary; and a bandit element that at times overwhelms law and order.

Pakistan was part of India, but in the partition that caused such upheaval in 1947, the west wing of India became Pakistan and the east wing became Bangladesh. During that time, when the British left, Indian Muslims were forced out of India into Pakistan, and Indian Hindus forced out of the new countries to India. A lot of lives lost, fortunes lost. Bangladesh click here. India click here.

Pakistan is often in the news: today, May 28 2015, it is in the news because the CEO of a fake degree mill was arrested after the New York Times ran an article a week ago, saying the degree mill made up fake universities and high schools and issued beautiful looking diplomas for a price.

I have included a handful of videos and some news feeds, so you get a general idea of the country. Youtube has more than 5 million videos about Pakistan. I don't have the years left to watch them all.

Pakistan is always interesting, because it broke off from Britain and India on the same day, 14 Aug 1947, the day before India became independent. Also, because India does not like it, nor does China and it has nuclear weapons and a large area of territory that it claims, and so does India. It is the home of the first prime minister to give birth in office, Benazir Bhutto. It is the home of the youngest Nobel Laureate, Malala Yousafzi. It was the place of death of murdered American journalist, Daniel Pearl, and of assassinated Al Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden

A great tragedy befell Pakistan in 2014, when a school was attacked and over 140 children massacred.

Pakistan produces some amazing cricketers, one who has transitioned into being a senior statesmen, after a successful marriage to a British lady, is Imran Khan.
