While Mahatma Gandhi was orchestrating India’s independence from Britain, Pakistan’s founder, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, was negotiating a separate settlement to accommodate India’s Muslim population in the eastern and western corners of the subcontinent. From his efforts the new Islamic nation of P.A.K.I.S.T.A.N (Punjab, Afghania, Kashmir, Iran, Sindh, Tukharistan, Afghanistan, BalochistaN) emerged in 1947.

This 64-page booklet outlines Pakistan’s history from the Aryan invasion in 1700 BC (introducing the Vedic religion and Sanskrit language) to Musharraf’s ban on extremist Muslim groups in 2002 (also referenced in a two-page timeline of historical events). 

Other chapters include: political biographies; the separation of Bangladesh; background information about the Kashmir crisis; foreign relations; religion; nuclear weapons; political parties and Muslim extremism.
