7 pictures which show why Pakistan is no different from India!
The relationship between India and Pakistan has always been on the bitter side, since independence.

Both the countrymen do not want to see each other eye to eye, be it on border or in a cricket match. The only exception being political meetings where things look cordial.
But that's not all about Pakistan, the country on the ground is somewhat similar to it India.
Culturally both the nation are close to each other. Like India, Pakistan is an ethnically and linguistically diverse country, with a similar variation in its geography and wildlife.
