What is the difference between India and Pakistan?
Rohit Kumar Singh (
India and Pakistan, whats the difference;
Well, Pakistan’s new Finance minister Janaab Asad Umar announces that Pakistan needs 12 billion (1200 crore) dollars in form of loans urgently in the coming 4–6 weeks.
Later it was announced that Pakistan needs loan between 9-12 billion dollars to cope-up with its down-spiraling account deficit economy.
Pakistan’s new PM indicated that he would knock the doors of IMF for country’s largest ever bailout of 12 billion dollars.
Meanwhile in India
India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani has real-time net worth of 40.3 billion (4030 crore) dollars as of today.

Cheese and Chalk! White and Black! That is the difference, literally. I don’t mean to play down Pakistan because I have some very good friends there. But the differences are glaring:
1.India has had genuine democracy since 1947 (apart from the 18 months of emergency) - Pakistan has had a limited franchise. The first civilian Government came to power in 1972 when Zulifiqar Ali Bhutto became President and then Prime Minister. Then he was brought down in 1975 by Zia Ul Haq and hanged. After Zia dies in an air crash, democracy is restored, but 18 years later Nawaz Sharif is toppled by Musharraf and sent into exile.
2.India has had one National Anthem - Jan Gan Man! Pakistan has it’s second one now. The first ‘Tarana-e-Pakistan’ which was written in pure Urdu, the national language of Pakistan (accepted and now spoken by the entire nation), was abolished and replaced in 1952 by ‘Pak Sarzamin’ written by Hafeez Jallandhari in pure Persian (except one word ‘ka’ in Urdu. Persian is spoken or understood by less than one percent of Pakistanis in present day. The reason the first national song was removed because it was written by a Hindu, Jagannath Azad?
3.Pakistan is an Islamic Republic but has theocratic state rules. India is secular.
4.Though Hindi is accepted as the national language of India, it is not officially gazetted. Pakistan has its national language - Urdu.
5.Indians know and are proud of their heritage and culture. Pakistan has a richness of ancient history, but chooses to ignore it. This creates an identity crises. On the other hand, Indians own that richness and culture though its it Pakistan.
2.印度有一首国歌——Jan Gan Man！巴基斯坦现在有了第二首。第一首“塔拉纳-巴基斯坦”是用巴基斯坦的民族语言纯乌尔都语写的（现在被整个国家接受并使用），1952年被废除，并由哈菲兹-贾兰德哈里用纯波斯语写的“巴基斯坦萨尔扎敏”取代。今天，只有不到百分之一的巴基斯坦人能听说或理解波斯语。第一首国歌之所以被删去，是因为它是由一个印度教人贾格纳思·阿扎德创作的?
6.India got it’s constitution in 1950 adopted by the parliament. Pakistan’s present constitution is its third, which was introduced by Z. A. Bhutto.
7.India is named after the river Indus which barely touches India but flows in Pakistan all the way through. ‘Pak’ in the name of Pakistan comes from Urdu, an Indian language, and ‘Stan’ comes from Sanskrit word ‘Sthan’.
8.Pakistan supports the Palestinian movements but Zia-ul-Haq carries out a massacre of Palestinians in Jordon, in ‘Black September’ Operation, killing over 20,000 Palestinians. PLO leader was also supported by India, and its leader Late Yasser Arafat called Mrs. Indira Gandhi his sister.
9.India is now the world's 3rd largest economy (GDP-PPP) terms, and 6th largest in nominal GDP in US$ terms. Pakisyan's politicians/businessmen and bureaucratic elite have run Pak economy to ground. Its barely surviving.
10.India and Pakistan gained freedom at midnight between August 14 and 15, 1947, but Pakistan celebrates it on 14th from 1950 (earlier, for 2 years Pakistan too had celebrated it on 15th), India has always celebrated Independence Day on 15th August since 1947.
11.Pakistan was carved out of India. India was split into many countries.
12.But… the biggest difference between India and Pakistan is that, most Indians look at Pakistanis as their own people, but very few Pakistanis consider Indians as their own. Pity… on both sides.
If India hadremained undivided, we would be the third largest, and much prosperous nation — economically, culturally and historically.

The difference between India and Pakistan is India :- India has Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.
Pakistan has Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan.
He is Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, He is a Pakistani Nuclear Physicist. He joined URENCO and after some years his work got access of blue print of Uranium Centrifuges.
Soon, he took to visit his country in 1974 and fled away with blue prints ensured to him and never came back to URENCO. His stolen blue prints helped Pakistan to became a nuclear power.
Khan created an international network to sell nuclear technology to Libya, Iran, and North Korea. He was caught and had to accept his crime in the front of media. He was put under house arrest for 5 years. After that he lived a Luxurious Life as he was accepted as National Hero in Pakistan.
He is Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, He was an Indian Scientist, Politician, Administrator, Author, Professor. He joined Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and made several ballistic missile and launch vehicle technology, thus he came to be known as Missile Man of India.
After that he joined Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in 1963, he was the Project Director of India’s first satellite to be placed in orbit by an Indian-made launch vehicle SLV-3 ‘Rohini’ and many other things which made ISRO to be the 5th best Space Research Organisation in the world.
When Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam was the President of India he donated his salary to a trust called PURA. He helped design a cost-effective coronary stent known as ‘Kalam-Raju-Stent’ making healthcare accessible to all. Dr. Kalam and Dr. Soma Raju came up with a rugged tablet computer in 2012 to take care of health of underprivileged people in rural India. By his speech he inspired many youngsters of India, I am also inspired by him.
He was accepted as hero by not only India but the whole world. Switzerland had declared May 26 as ‘Science Day’ in honour of visiting Indian President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, NASA named an organism found in the international space station after Dr. Abdul Kalam (solibacillus kalamii). India named a Island off the coast of odisha as ‘Dr. Abdul Kalam Island’, etc.
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam owned
6 Pants (2 DRDO Uniforms)
4 Shirts (2 DRDO Uniforms)
3 Suits (1 western, 2 Indian)
1 Flat (which he donated)

1 Padma bhushan

He even donated his last 8 years pension towards the development of his village.

Pakistan’s nuclear missiles are named Ghazni, Ghauri,Babur and Abdali. Each name is a symbol of Muslim victory in Hindu- Muslim conflict.
Modern India has named its nuclear weapons after the elements of life-Agni, Aakash, Prithvi (Fire, Sky and Earth).
The difference is in the ideology- Destruction versus life.

Below is the pic of General Zia Ul Haq.
The one who toppled government of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in below pic
Why do I mention this at all? It is quite routine in Pakistan for an army general to topple elected representative of Government.
The reason is, this time it was extremely gentle shrewd person called Bhutto. Bhutto was known for his Foreign Education, for his gentle man image, very similar to Shashi Tharoor in India. He beautifully negotiated Shimla agreement with Indiraji after Yahya Khan left country in miserable state in 1971.
Bhutto defended his country in UN. He very intellectually argued in security council. Had he been the Prime Minister for longer time I expected the India Pakistan relationship on better part. In a nutshell even India did not wish that he shall die early.
He was one of the most popular leader in Pakistan even when he was imprisoned .
The last mistake he did was appointing Zia Ul Haq as General in Pakistan army. Zia intially behaved in very sober way but unfortunately his intentions were not what they should be. He planned a military coup successfully executed it.
It is allegedly said that charges against Zulfikar were manufactured and there were no real charges against him. However, after he was found guilty he was served with a death penalty.
Now take India.
India always had a very humble sophisticated person in seat of Prime Minister and President. May it be Indian National Congress or may it be BJP or bloody coalition of Xyz Janata party. Every Prime Minister was intellectual thinker and well experienced in politics except Rajiv Gandhi who unfortunately became India’s Prime Minister had I been born at that time I would have sat on hunger till death against Rajiv’s candidature of PM.
This is the difference between India and Pakistan.
PM here never fears of his life.
PM across the border first fears of his life than he fears about his Power and at last citizen of Pakistan.

You decide the difference. Read the following two stories:-
Story 1:- A fighter jet is flying under the territory, suddenly a missile comes from another country.
Pilot tries everything to save the Jet Plane, but he cannot.
Missile hits the plane and plane starts to fall. Pilot decides to use parachute because there is no other way to save the plane.
He ejects from the jet and started falling near the Line of Control. Enemy soldiers see the parachute and start firing.
The parachute was full of holes by enemy fire and his descent was turbulent.
The pilot fractured his knee. There were several bullet wounds in his body, but he was still alive. (Remember he was in territory of his country).
The enemy soldiers took the pilot to their territory and after many days of torture,they killed him.
Story 2:- A helicopter from enemy country comes into our territory.
The border security force think the helicopter came by mistake, so they do not fire heavy weapons until any hostile activity by helicopter.
The helicopter came up to 700 meters into our territory. BSF fired small weapons at the helicopter(to warn them, they didn't want to hurt the helicopter). They didn't use any anti-aircraft gun to knock down the chopper.
After some time helicopter returned to its territory.
After some hours news come in media “ Pakistan/POK PM (I can't say who was in the helicopter) was in that helicopter.”
The pilot from the first story was Squadron Leader Ajay Ahuja. Pakistan brutally killed him.
The post-mortem report of Squadron Leader Ajay Ahuja spoke of three grievous wounds:
1.There is a penetrating gunshot wound; entry near right ear, exit near the external orifice of left ear.
It was reported that the left knee fracture was sustained when he parachuted down, but the gunshots show that he landed alive and was shot. And his death was called as a cold blooded murder.

How Pakistan made Judgement on the basis of religion.

Humans have made religion, religion has not made Humans.
So first behave like a human.
