History of Pakistan
- In 1947, subcontinent of India was divided into two nations, India and Pakistan.
- History’s greatest inter-migration occurred accompanied by much bloodshed. For Example a train full dead bodies coming from India to Pakistan with “Eid Congratulations” written on it with blood because it was Eid on that day in Pakistan. Also, some young girls murdered by their own fathers or brothers lest they should be caught by Sikhs. Though numerous instances of Muslim girls giving birth to Sikh children kept coming to surface even after 50 to 60 years when they had become grandmothers.
- During first five years, cream of the leadership was skimmed off.
Why Pakistan Did Not Progress as Expected? – Reasons for Lagging Behind:
Feudal Lords looking sharp to favor Pakistan movement. They did not do this favor out of any national or religious inspiration. They had a personal interest for winning a great title. In Pakistan, they had brighter chances to become a Minister, Chief Minister and even Prime Minister. Because India being a big country with an overwhelming Hindu majority, their chances for becoming a Prime Minister tended to dwindle to nothing. Pakistan being a small country and also having a Muslim Majority with chances of their political promotion first and foremost.
Becoming a King or Emperor was the Ideal of Every land lord. One specifically opted for becoming Mughal Emperor. He had the example of Jahangir who married Queen Noor Jehan after killing her husband Ali Quli through Subedars sent by him. By their domination in society, this mindset of King or an Emperor was injected especially into the Bureaucracy and into public in general. The distinctive feature of this mindset is considering oneself above law. Thus two sets of law in Pakistan, one for the rich and the other for the poor. This is the basic cause of the misfortune of Pakistan.
In about 1960, South Korea borrowed the plan for progress from Pakistan.
Malaysia also benefited from Pakistan in planning their projects.
