Politician Historian Early History & Colonization In the early 18th century, Pakistan was controlled by the British East India Company. Then in 1947, British India gave Pakistan its independence. Before this, Pakistan was an empire. Its official independence day is August 14th 1947. Muhammad Ali Jinnah (1879-1948) was considered the "father" and "founder" of Pakistan. Location Art in Pakistan One unique aspect of Pakistani artwork is a style called "truck art." Often they are dubbed "jingle trucks" as well. Basically, as the name suggests, trucks are used as canvases for detailed and colorful floral patterns, calligraphy, and some poems. Each of these trucks are customized by their owners. Music in Pakistan One traditional type of music is called "Qawwali." Qawwali is the traditional devotional music of sufism, which is a form of islam. Qawwali has been around for more than 700 years. Nustrat Fateh Ali Khan is a world famous singer for Qawwali. Some consider him to be the best singer ever recorded Pakistan's main languages are English and Urdu. The urdu script is based off of the style of the persain alphabet. One famous writer is Asad Sabbir, who published his first book at only 16.

gained a lot of media attention. Malala is the daughter of the owner of a school for girls in Swat Valley, Pakistan. Both Malala and her father are advocates for education for girls in Pakistan. She began fighting for rights for girls when she was only 12 (she is 14 now). In october , on her way back from school, taliban fighters stopped the car where she and others from her school were in. They asked which one was Malala and opened fire hitting her in the head and neck. 2 others were injured. Miraculously, she survived the ordeal with no brain damage. She is currently at a hospital in the UK getting better. Her story has caused much attention to the subject of education for girls and is being actively supported more than ever.
