    United India & Pakistan (U IP)

    What about a united India & Pakistan
    with a common market like (EU) European
    Union without borders without hate.

    Together, we can become as powerful as

    We have same culture, same language and
    the only thing we need is unity.

    Why not?

    I dunno bout United, but Untidy...yeah

    anyways, its a good idea, in the future the common markets will boost local economies as well as be able to deal with other trade blocks in a more effective manner.

    Could it be a reality in near future, I dunno...the lack of trust and abundance of issues between the nieghbours make it a tough bridge to cross.
    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.


      As far as India is concerned, it is big enough and can progress well if all its part keep in harmony with each other.
      Pakistan has two parts. While Punjab and Sindh are historically, linguistically and culturally are similar to India, Baloochistan and NWFP are more tribal and like central asia.
      Pakistan has been focussing on its central asian identity these days given its 'we are anything but indians' ideology.
      Again, this coming together will have cost for India. 140 million more muslims and if u add bangladesh 280 million. Indian political system has not been able too mange existing minorities. What it will do when minorities form 40% of population. Even if there is EU style union, there has to be representation that can influence India policies.
      With Bangladesh, Nepal, Lanka, India is already moving to free trade. Even if Pakistan does not come in, it is a big enough market.


        although with lanka and bangladesh economies the pains that EU felt in harmonizing economies that were in stark contrasts.

        additionally, having one big player in a common market has always been an issue of contention and balancing forces are required. Even in EU's case the big players have been balanced by other big players on mos issues so one big plyer does not dictate its wishes on everyone.

        So its not just the moving towards a common market, but a functional and progressive common market which has much more dynamics involved.
