the history of pakistan is the history of the modern state of pakistan. pakistan as a political entity has existed since the partition of british india in 1947. until then, the territory comprising modern pakistan was part of the british raj under the provincial system. when india and pakistan were founded as republics, in 1950, the two countries were divided into four independent provinces, with a fifth province given autonomy (east bengal) to be later joined to pakistan.
pakistan was one of the british empire's most important dominions, being the site of the mughal empire's earliest capital, delhi, as well as the region in which the mughal empire's western territories were located. at the time of partition of british india into india and pakistan in 1947, the area comprising modern pakistan was part of the province of british india's delhi. jinnah declared pakistan as an independent state within muslim majority regions of british india and succeeded in carving out east bengal (now bangladesh), west bengal, and baluchistan to form the eastern portion of pakistan. pakistan, formed with these parts, is the only muslim-majority state to be founded out of the former colonial possessions of the british empire. d8a7b2ff72
