Many analysts watching the splash of the Afghan jihad, and bearing in mind the historical lesson of the collapse of a single Islamic Republic of Pakistan in 1971, predicted the inevitable collapse of the country and the West uncomprehending nation At the same time, they tend to forget that historic monster, like a single Muslim Pakistan, which existed before the separation of Bangladesh, in any case, had no chance of survival. This contributed not only to the strong racial and linguistic differences between the two Pakistan –
West and East, but also the fact that they were separated by 1,600 kilometers of hostile Indian territory. The tragedy was not the fact of the collapse of the country, and that because of it spilled a sea of ??blood. West Pakistan, compared to a single sample Pakistan 1971 – a much more natural state entity whose peoples have, at least to a limited extent, a shared history, culture, and are characterized by very marked ethnic, inter-tribal weave. The name of the country – artificially.
It came up in 1933 a Muslim student who studied in Britain, Rehmat Ali. Ali tried to define the term so that the north-western part of what was then the British Indian Empire, which was supposed to create a state of Muslims.

This language was never told the Muslims of Bengal, and, likewise, never said those nations that inhabit modern Pakistan. It was the language of the central part of the Mughal Empire, the Muslims, with the centers in Delhi, Agra, Bhopal and Hyderabad, deep in the heart of what is now India. Urdu – the state language of Pakistan, the state education system, the national newspapers and the film industry, but at home it is spoken by only Muhajirs – Muslim refugees from India and their descendants (7% of the population).
At the same time, geographically modern Pakistan – not the stillborn monster, what was old Pakistan 1947-71 period. The geographical unity of West Pakistan, in some respects, has a thousand-year history and is no other than the valley of the Indus River, plus the surrounding mountains, deserts and swamps.
