First Islamic Republic: Pakistan
Pakistan is a country located in the Middle East, which borders with Iran, Afghanistan, China and India. The country was founded in 1947 by parts of British India. For 100 years the country was part of the British Empire. In 1956 the independent state proclaimed itself the first Islamic republic. Pakistan was founded with the aspiration of representing a country for all Muslims in the Indian subcontinent, a central idea, to keep the different people of the country together. In that days, the Bengal Indian-British province, called East Pakistan that was 1,500 kilometers apart, was part of the state. In 1971 after the war conflicts, Eastern Pakistan became Bangladesh's independent state. The huge distance between the two sides, considering that India was full, made it difficult to develop a national identity. In addition, the West is characterized by Muslim prevalence, while the Orient is predominantly Hindu. The constitution of a united state has become an illusion. Young Pakistan faced similarly bloody conflicts with India over the province of Kashmir in the northern part of the country. Parts of the country are still claimed by China, India and Pakistan. Here are the partially autonomous areas of Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan's political stability is still to be considered inadequate.
Old system - Post of Pakistan
The history of the Post of Pakistan is very old. Already in the twelfth century there are precursor models of mail in these areas. A messenger system was set up for deliveries of the shipments, which were calculated on the basis of the weight of the goods and the distance of the route. In the 18th Century under British rule a more modern system was set up, which used camels as transport vehicles, respectively railway lines. Today, the postal system is run by the State Post Pakistan, which was founded after independence from the United Kingdom.
New ZIP code
The postal code system was introduced in Pakistan in 1988 to deliver a faster and better postal service. Pakistan's ZIP code consists of a five-digit numeric code, which is associated with their postal centers. Pakistan is divided into four provinces: Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh; It is also part of the country Islamabad besides the tribal areas under federal administration, although above all these bordering parts of Afghanistan are partially controlled by al-Qaeda or the Pakistani Taliban.
