Economic Impact on Pakistan Due to Ongoing Conflicts with India
Abstract- This paper gives a historical background that tries to explain the reason why both Pakistan and India have never been able to come to terms with each other's autonomy. It makes the argument that neither country has ever been able to achieve any closure on its own history. Both have suffered massive economic and political penalties. As the highly underpowered part of the equation, Pakistan has paid a higher penalty both in terms of economic and social terms in its bid to keep pace with India's military strength.
Pakistan and India gained their independence from the British Crown in August 1947 after an intense political and military struggle. However, the separation of these two countries was a very painful process for both sides as much bloodshed followed. Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs killed one another in their respective strongholds. This ethnic strife resulted in massive genocide and sparked the first fire of hatred and mistrust between Pakistan and India which still burns today.
