  1. The creation of Pakistan was based on anti-India or specifically anti Hindu sentiments. It was created with the thought of creating an ideal Islamic state. So they denounced everything which could connect them to Hindu or Indian heritage.

    They start their history with invasion of Muslim invaders. So Mohammad bin Qasim and Mohammad Gauri are their heroes.
    Their independence struggle heros are those who migrated to Pakistan. Those who stayed in India are mentioned in small parts.
    Their best poet is not Tagore but Iqbaal. Other muslim poets are hailed.
    Their golden period is Islamic ruler of India. Aurangzeb, Gauri, Gaznavi who destroyed hindu temples are subject of folk lore.
    In short their history is written with Islamic pen.
