In defense of Pakistan

As ideas go Pakistan is a great one. Talk about the "land of the pure". Now, let me explain why I call it an idea.

Since time immemorial, every Tom, Dick and Henry who wanted to get a piece of India raped and pillaged his way through that pure land to get to the heart of India (gangetic plains). If it wasn't Alexander's Greeks stroking the tight buns of the little boys there, than it was the Turks who went about their merry way buggering the bejeezus out of the kiddees there (remember the movie Lawrence of Arabia?). By gosh, by now there's probably no pure-bred left who doesn't have a bit of a Greek, Turk, Persian, Mongol and god knows what in him.

All this resulted in a culture that had no affinity for Bharatvarsh and its ancient history. Talk to any Egyptian and he is proud of the pharaohic history of Egypt. But our Pakistani cousins, to the man, look westward at the Arab and Persian civilization as their past. I think, this is the main reason partition was sought by them. They have a distorted view of their past and have no affinity for their true heritage which is more centered in the Indus valley and gangetic plains region. What no one seems to realize is that 95% of Pakistanis are descendents of Hindus who have been converted - by force or volanteerily. Their history is the same as Indian history.
