Pakistani Nationalism and A Resurgent Pakistan in the 21st Century

Pakistan today is an increasingly homogenous, strong and integrated country, and the Pakistani identity is stronger than ever. Pakistan is surging economically, its strategic importance is increasing with the growing recognition of its contributions to global order. Democracy is taking root, and the political system is on the road to stabilization. It is a good time to be a Pakistani.

At 71, Pakistan is stronger, confident, and influential than it was at the time of independence in 1947. Today, Pakistan is one of the fastest growing economies and a key contributor to global peacekeeping and security. It helped open China to the world, aided the U.S. and the free world in defeating communism and is now helping Muslim nations in creating a military alliance to defeat the scourge of extremism and terrorism.
