As Pakistani”s we can proudly acknowledge the various cultures that exists in Pakistan today including many societies of different ethnic backgrounds. In Nothern Pakistan we have the Dardic, Wakhi and Burusho communities, the west comprises of the Baluch and the Pakhtoon, in eastern Pakistan there are the Muhajir and the Makarani communities and lastly in the east there are the Punjabis, Kashmiris and the Sindhis. Pakistan has a mixed and interesting blend of many of these historical local culture as well as cultural attributes adopted from other Muslim countries like Turkey and many Arab or Gulf countries because the Islamic culture has a large role influencing the overall culture in the entire state since the majority of the population is Muslim.
Then the other major cultural influences in Pakistan are from our neighboring countries including the Persians, Afghans, Indians, the Southern and Central Asian Countries where we share many common attributes ion terms of clothing, art and even the food that we eat. We also have rich cultural history the various civilizations that existed in this region in the past. Some examples include the Indus Valley Civilization which existed in 2800 – 1800 B.C., and was known for its amazing cities, organized sanitation, brilliant roads and exquisite societies.The culture of Pakistan seems to be so diverse because it has been invaded quite a few times and has been inhabited by a number of different people, each of them have left their traces of culture on the locals of the country. The more prominent invaders were the Greeks, Aryans, White Huns, Arabs, Turks, Mongol, Afghans, Buddhists and other Eurasian groups until and including the British who finally left in the 1940s. This makes Pakistan one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world today which includes many different cultural trademarks like the large variety of languages spoken within the Pakistani nation. Including the culture inherited because of the long reign of the Muslim Moghul empire here which set its own cultural milestones and influence within the various regions especially within Pakistan.
