Luci's Writing Challenge (A letter to your country)

A Letter To My Beloved Country…….Pakistan.

Dear me, I am well aware that you are officially called Islamic Republic of Pakistan, republic in South Asia, marking the area where South Asia converges with Southwest Asia and Central Asia having Islamabad (City) as your capital, but Karachi (my Janam Bhomi) is the country’s largest city of 200 million population (unofficial).

Your present day was the cradle of the earliest known civilization of South Asia, the Indus Valley civilization (2500 -1700 BC). The territory was part of the Mughal Empire from 1526 until the 1700s, when it came under British rule. You gained independence from British in August 1947.

You are bordered on the west by Iran, on the north and northwest by Afghanistan, on the northeast by China, on the east and southeast by India, and on the south by the Arabian Sea. A panhandle of Afghanistan territory in the northwest, the Wakhan Corridor, separates you and Tajikistan. You have an area of 796,095 square kelometers (307,374 square miles), not including the section of Jammu and Kashmīr under its control. Jammu and Kashmīr is a disputed territory located between you and India. You control a portion of the territory as Azad (Free) Kashmīr and the Federally Administered Northern Areas (FANA), while India controls a portion as the state of Jammu and Kashmīr.

Natural Regions
You have a great extremes of elevation, reaching the highest point at the Himalayan peak of K2 (also known as Mount Godwin Austen) in the north and the lowest point at the Arabian Sea coast in the south. The Indus River flows your length from north to south. The Indus and its tributaries form a wide river valley with fertile plains in Punjab and Sind (Sindh) provinces. You are mountainous in the north and west. Earthquakes are frequent, and occasionally severe, in the northern and western areas.

Much of you is a dry, sun-scorched region. To the west of the Indus are the rugged dry mountains of the Sulaimān Range, which merge with the treeless Kīrthar Range in the south. Farther west are the arid regions of the Baluchistan Plateau and the Khārān Basin. A series of mostly barren low mountains and hills predominate in the western border areas. The Thar Desert straddles the border with India in the southeast.

You also possesse a variety of wetlands, with the glacial lakes of the Himalayas, the mudflats of the Indus Valley plains, and the extensive coastal mangroves of the Indus River delta. The wetland areas cover an estimated area of 7.8 million hectares (19.3 million acres).

You have been suffering from the high handedness of terrorism of so called talibans (baby of the superpowers they got it born to eliminate communist Russia especially from Afghanistan. After that these talibans were let orphaned and some of them still used to achieve ulterior motives of the super powers against most of the Islamic countries. You are also victimizing being a weak country, run by the mean and unscrupulous rulers who always exploit your common people.

In spite of all the drawbacks and lacking I can feel the love I find within you, which miss when I travel abroad even for a short period.

May Allah Protect you from all the evils and you will keep us shelter like a mother. Long live Pakistan.

Owo, you filled it with History and Geography! I like  both. I have studied Indus civilization so I know how rich your country is in terms of archaeology. I wish, if I could visit those sites.

You have quite a history being the cradle of South Asian civilization, your culture must be filled with the treasures of the past. Yes despite its flaws we all love our country dearly for it is really the one place where we know we truly belong.  Thank you for such a nice share.
