    The idea of Pakistan survives on the premise of enmity towards India. This premise came into existence well before Pakistan became a reality.

That is how Islam has spread all across the world from a tiny enclave in the desert of Arabia, destroying frontiers, borders, kingdoms, empires, traditions, cultures and civilisations.
