Pakistan,officially the People's Republic of Pakistan (Urdu:پیپلز جمہوریہ پاکستان) is a one-party democratic republic in Southern Asia.

The idea of Pakistan was created by poet Allama Iqbal and other Muslim Nationalists during the Freedom Struggle as an independent nation for the Indian Muslims as opposed to status as a minority in a Hindu-dominated India.

This kicked off their rivalry with the Hindu-run state of Akhand Bharat.

Though the nation began as an Islamic Emirate,in 1971 Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto staged a coup against the emir,Javed Iqbal,and exiled him to Kabul.

The rivalry with Akhand Bharat continues to exist;even if the Pakistani government has become less religiously-based.So who will win?
