Thoughts on the Independence Day of Pakistan

Google Doodle Pakistan Independence Day
14th August 2015, another independence day of Pakistan. We are all Pakistani today. Although the fun fare and excitement has more to do with consumerism and commercialism than patriotism.

The Independence Day is a good time for self catharsis, so here I go:

Do we really know why Pakistan was carved out of the Indian subcontinent?

Do we deserve to celebrate an Independence Day?

And, why limit ourselves to a piece of land?
