Pakistan was a country in south Asia.


Pakistan was formed in 1947, with the border with India being announced on 17 August of that year. It was intended to be a country for Muslims, as opposed to its majority Hindu neighbour, India. As the Partition of India commenced, borders were drawn, populations were forcibly relocated, millions being displaced across the border with India. The Punjab was a region that was divided by the partition.

The Thirteenth Doctor and her companions Ryan Sinclair, Yasmin Khan and Graham O'Brien listened to the declaration of Pakistani independence on the radio.

On 18 August 1947, Umbreen (a Muslim) married Prem (a Hindu) in Pakistan. The Thirteenth Doctor officiated her marriage to Prem at the India-Pakistan border. Some Indian Hindus were deeply prejudiced against Pakistani Muslims. Manish killed his own brother Prem for marrying Umbreen. Umbreen and her Hasna subsequently fled to Lahore where Umbreen lived in the 1950s before moving to Sheffield. (TV: Demons of the Punjab)
