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
