No haven in Pakistan’s ‘fort of Islam’

Despite what is happening to Muslims inPakistan, many people still regard the country as a ‘fort of Islam’. When this ‘fort of Islam’ was established in 1947 after the division of British India along religious lines, despite the fact that Pakistan was supposed to provide protection, economic prosperity and dignity to its citizens, it resulted in the deaths of around one million innocent people and many millions were uprooted, as there was no planned transfer of people from one country to another.
