    re: ‘Pakistani history goes way way back.’

    The term ‘Pakistan’ was coined in 1934 by Choudhary Rahmat Ali. Pakistan didn’t exist before it even in imagination. The sole purpose of the independent nation was to increase economic prosperity of Indian Muslims. Millions of Muslims from Punjab, Hyderabad, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh etc. migrated to newly carved out ‘Pak’. So, Pak’s history is of 63 years. And, it isn’t goes way way back.
