Pakistan - Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Think about the culture of your country. What do you like about it? Do you have some favorite kinds of food and music? You can probably think of many things you like and don't like about the culture where you live.
 
2     Do you think religion is an important part of the culture where you live? For many people, religion is a very important part of life. In many countries, religion is at the center of its culture. It is in Pakistan. In fact, the country of Pakistan was created for its religion.
 
3     Until the middle of the 20th century, Pakistan was part of India. The people of northwest India, in modern-day Pakistan, have had many religions over the years. The religions of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam have all been the primary religion in this area at one time or another.
 
4     Today, Islam is the main religion of Pakistan. Of course, there are other religions practiced in Pakistan, but Islam is the state religion. Pakistan has a distinct Islamic identity, different from anywhere else. The differences between the Muslims (the name for people who practice Islam) in northwestern India and India's non-Muslim population helped create the independent country of Pakistan.
