I remember meeting Hindu Sindhi family that lived on my aunt and uncle's block when I visiting India as a kid. Hindus from Sindh were practically evicted from their geographical homeland by the creation of Pakistan/partitioning of India. Today less than 2% of Pakistanis are Hindu, and they are forced to do crap like having to swear upon the Quran if they want to be appointed to a position and wear red turbans as the mark of a dhimmi.

Why don't you also mention the fact that Pakistan has had a Hindu Chief Justice and several other Hindus that made it to top positions in Pakistan.

Taxila Buddhist Ruins are interesting.
Sikh community people regularly visit Pakistan for their holy shrines.
K-2 Mountain peak is the most challenging place for mountaineers. I wish it gets same popularity as Mt. Everest.
Lahore is very close to Amritsar in India. Foreign tourists can visit Lahore and Amritsar together to get a unique Punjab experience.

Top half, places like Canada, Switzerland, Alaska, Nepal, etc.

MIddle half looks like stuff you could just as easily see in India for some, Egypt with the camels, etc.
I am well traveled and I am not sure what your point even was in this thread but Pakistan is very different than all the places you mentioned.

Same thing happened in Bangladesh. That's why the religious demography of say Indian Punjabi is very different to the Punjab in Pakistan.

Funny how partition in this thread is being made out to seem like it was a one sided affair when we all know what happened was all 3 parties killing each other. If you really want to place the blame on someone for how partition happened then perhaps you need to start blaming that imbecile Mountbatten who rushed partition. It's good though that he got what was coming to him considering I personally hold him responsible for the blood that was spilled.
