Differences Between INDIA and PAKISTAN

India and Pakistan are two countries that probably have one of the biggest love-hate relationships in the world in fact if you think about their
Relationship and compares that to what people say about women you say you can’t live with them
You can’t live without them welcome back to another episode of FTD facts. My name is Leroy Kenton. This is a channel
where we talk about everything and
Everything and this is a pretty exciting one. I’m going to be talking about Indian and Pakistan
What’s the big difference?


Here because like myself and many other people from the west for the most part we actually have no clues
So I did some digging just to find out what exactly makes Indians and Pakistanis
Different so to begin we got to do a little bit of a history lesson
So you ready for this the Indian subcontinent used to be ruled by the British Empire for almost 200 years?
But when world war II ended the British were in no position to hold on to their stronghold over the Indian subcontinent
But the British didn’t leave before partitioning the Indian subcontinent into two separate nation
India and Pakistan on the date of August 14 1947 Pakistan became an independent country
However, there was no correct way to divide the line with the hindu majorities as well as the muslim majorities
How do you divide that there was a mixture of people of different faiths all over the Indian subcontinent?
Because of this improper partitioning of the Indian subcontinent
There was mass scale casualties on both sides
Violence broke out all over the country and the partition left over a million dead and almost 20 million people were displaced from their home
It’s been almost 70 years since this separation
And it goes without saying that the last 70 years haven’t been the easiest for either
Countries both of them have to overcome hurdles and challenges and had to really work hard to get global recognition in many Different fields
So we have a little brief history lesson if you want to find out more about the Indian and Pakistan
Partition you got to check out our video the choose behind the India-Pakistan
Conflict, I’ve deleted that down below. I go in a lot of detail about it, but moving forward now
Let’s take a look at some of the cultural differences the language differences
Well as there’s some differences that exists only because the two places are now two separate countries, but they’re not really major differences
It’s just the fact that they’re two different countries
That’s why those differences exist now the population of India at the time of filming this is one
billion three hundred and Forty two million five hundred and fifty two thousand seven hundred and Twenty five


Pakistan’s population in Comparison is
196 million seven hundred and fifty-four thousand four hundred people India is considered a secular nation whereas
Pakistan is considered a muslim state and just to give you a little bit of background about that
India was conceived as a secular democracy by National Congress leads such as gandhi and Jawaharlal
Nehru it was meant to guarantee all the people in the South asian subcontinent
political and religious freedom however people like muhammad Ali Jinnah considered to be the father of
Pakistan as well as other Muslim congress leaders were the driving forces behind the formation of
Pakistan and so it became a muslim state and taking of that actually one of the biggest differences between the two countries is
religion although
India is considered a secular nation by majority 80% of people
Identify as hindus while of course the majority of people in Pakistan identify as Muslim
It’s also interesting to note that Pakistan has the second largest Muslim population
In the whole world now one thing to address and I know the point may be a little controversial, but there’s no specific
single Pakistan Culture separate from a specific Indian culture it’s like having a plate of food you know with your rice chicken and
Vegetables, and that plate of food is divided and then now it’s like oh, we were once the same plate of food
But you have more chicken so therefore the chicken is your culture weight, but that was part of my culture
Yeah, probably not the best analogy
But I think you get the point Pakistan alone is five times smaller than India and there’s about 300 dialects and languages
the count four dialects and languages in India number over
1500 well let’s take a look more into the language differences
There’s two official languages for communication in Pakistan and those are gu and English
Now there are several regional languages of Kazan and those are Cindy Punjabi, Bellucci, Pashto
Karachi’s Gory and Hint Ku but the national language of Pakistan is purdue when it comes to the languages in India
The two official languages for communication in India are English and hindi and yes
There are also original languages
And those are gujarati marathi tamil purdue as well Sanskrit Punjabi
and there’s many more and the national language in India is hindi the national animal of India is this guy the
Bengal Tiger the marquart is the national animal of Pakistan and I have to look this up, and it’s the species of goat
I’ve never heard of this before until this video in terms of currency Pakistan uses Pakistani rupees
India uses Indian rupees pretty self-explanatory the most popular greeting in Pakistan is salaam alaikum
India there are several like namaste Rom Rom dry Serum and such Sri akaal now
Let’s talk about the difference in Death
Pakistan after the Death of any
Muslim the body actually needs to be buried as quickly as possible from the time of death. This is according to islamic law
to prepare the body for burial
It has to be washed and covered with
Cop on and cop on you can also call that a shroud or a cloth now in India when I hindi dies
Hindus don’t necessarily Bury their bodies instead
They’re burnt and after the burning of the bodies the ashes are sprinkled in the ganges River or any other sacred body of water
Now finally let’s talk about the cuisines the food
the good
Stuff as you can tell India is a big place right one of the biggest populations
On the planet and of course it used to be bigger it consisted of the areas that are now Pakistan
Bangladesh, Sri Lanka my NMR
Formerly burma
So the notion of Indian food is not entirely accurate to begin with although the term
Pakistani Cuisine is a little bit big too because Pakistan didn’t exist nation until
1947 but for the sake of them now being two different countries
We can make a little bit of a distinction here Pakistani cuisine can be considered a subset of Indian cuisine
but even that subset is pretty diverse in the sense that the
Spices and the ingredients in Indian and Pakistani food are pretty much the same
But the way the food is prepared can be quite different
For example the kind of food that you would find being cooked in a south Indian home would be dal rat some sambar
ETC
It’s completely different from Pakistani Kebab, so in many Pakistani dishes very meat, heavy
But there’s a difference between those meat heavy dishes and the vegetarian dishes in some parts of India so yeah again
Describing something as Indian food and Pakistani food is a bit tricky because food isn’t necessarily
National it’s more regional don’t think anyone can be like no, this is Indian food
This is Pakistani food two different things. It’s just not possible
So there you guys go these are some of the difference between the two countries Pakistan and India we see that the certain
fundamental belief systems of each country sort of color the whole culture of each country
But one thing to remember is that there’s no better nation because better is subjective. It’s not objective
So rather than picking someone else’s culture or religious beliefs
Let’s Aim to really understand where they’re coming from because despite everything else. We’re all the same but different
We’re the exact same in the fact that we’re human beings but different in the fact that we’re all individual and have different self-expression
So I say to all of you my brothers and sisters. I love and appreciate all of you for simply being
You I may not agree with everything that you guys have to say and you may not necessarily agree. That’s been good
I have to say in terms of our personal perspective
but if you are a person living on this earth you have some
Values and never let anyone tell you that you’re worthless all right
