1.1 The Islamic Republic of Pakistan was founded on the 14th August 1947. It is a land of snow-covered peaks and burning deserts, of fertile mountain valleys and irrigated plains. It is peopled by some 149.03 million inhabitants representing an array of ethnic groups but united by the Islamic faith.
