Pakistan was sectioned off from India due to the efforts of “the Pakistan Movement”, which sought separate nation status for the Muslim areas of the Indian subcontinent. Originally, Bangladesh was also a part of Pakistan, known as “East Pakistan,” but it soon became its own nation. The name of the remaining “West Pakistan” was soon officially changed to “the Islamic Republic of Pakistan” to reflect the nation’s religious fervor. Interestingly, August 14th fell on the 27th of Ramadan in 1947, and the day before was a holy day of Islam called “Laylat Al Qadr.” This coincidence only tends to strengthen the religious overtones of Pakistan’s independence day.
