History Taught In Pakistan

A[size="5"]s the saying goes whoever controls Indus river, controls the subcontinent.[/size] Indus was the basis for holding power on the subcontinent. Indus valley, Alexander the great, delhi sultanate, Ghazni, Ghauri, Mughals and then british all came to know the importance of Indus. 1857 Mutiny didn’t work because Punjabi dominated Indus didn’t support the rebels.

The british mostly used Punjabi Rajputs to suppress the rebellion. The entire Punjab, the province in which the Upper Indus flows, remained loyal to Britain, It confirmed earlier assessments, such as those made after the Sir Alexander Burnes expedition (who was the first Westerner to explore the Indus River) of the strategic importance of the Indus that Britain could control the region if they held the Indus, and consequently, the Punjab.

The british didn’t care about congress party antics as long as they controlled Punjab and had the support of marshall race of Punjab. The first muslim general in British army was also Punjabi Rajput as well as Pak army. It was only after 1946 election in which Muslim league power house in Punjab ended the support of foreign rule that british were assured that they have lost Punjab and thus Indus which makes up subcontinent.

This is not about glorifying Punjab but indus which is mostly controlled by inhabited and controlled. Ghauri and Ghaznavids have also made their capitals at Lahore. 1857 mutiny was largely bengali mutiny, Pakistan lost bengal because of bengali mutiny and again in 2009 mutiny in Bengal. [...] Punjab have always been loyal to country and army there is no doubt why India, Bangladesh, bugti, pushtun and sindhi separatist hate punjabis.
