The name of my country is Pakistan. It came into being on the 14th August, 1947. The Muslims of Indo-Pakistan had to make great sacrifices to achieve Pakistan. Karachi became the capital of Pakistan after independence. Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah assumed the office of the Governor General. But he did not live long and he died on 11th September,1948. The geographical position of Pakistan has given it an important position among the countries of South East and West Asia. In the west, our neighbors are Afghanis and Iran.

Pakistan appeared on the map of the world as an Islamic state. It was founded on an ideological basis. The Muslims desired a separate state because they wanted to live in accordance with their cultural values and Islamic laws. The establishment of an Islamic society was thus the main object creating Pakistan. We are now marching towards the establishment of a truly Islamic society.
