What is the meaning of Pakistan?

  • P= PUNJAB
  • A= Afghania (Ali's preferred name for the North West Frontier Province),
  • K= KASHMIR
  • I= Intruded later to ease pronounciation
  • S= SINDH
  • TAN= stan from Balochistan

The Cambridge student and Muslim nationalist Choudhary Rahmat Ali coined this name. He devised the word and first published it on 28 January 1933 in the pamphlet "Now or Never". He constructed the name as an acronym of the different states/homelands/regions, which broke down into Punjab, A= Afghania (Ali's preferred name for the North West Frontier Province), K= Kashmir, S=Sindh and the suffix -stan from Balochistan, thus forming "Pakstan". An "i" intruded later to ease pronunciation. The suffix -stan in Persian means "home of" and in Sanskrit means "place". Rahmat Ali later expanded upon this in his 1947 book Pakistan: the Fatherland of the Pak Nation. In that book he explains the acronym as follows: P= Punjab, A= Afghania, K=Kashmir Iran, S= Sindh, T= Turkharistan (roughly the modern central-Asian states), A=Afghanistan and N=BalochistaN.

Today as a nation we are divided. We have been involved in racism. When Pakistan was came into being we took an oth as one nation. Today we are pulling out our roots, the roots which were laid by our forefathers and sacrificed their lives for our bright future. I would like to make a humble request to our new generation. Please stop racism!! We are not punjabi,sindhi, balochi or pathan, we are PAKISTANIS!!!

If we do not stop now, there will be more catastrophic situation in the future. If we want to see Pakistan as a stable country, we need to act now. Lets stand together and work for the prosperity of Pakistan. May Allah always bless Pakistan and Pakistanis!!!

"LONG LIVE PAKISTAN"
