Pakistan is a nation that was created from the ancient land of India. Pakistan and Bangladesh - on the east side of India - were created as Muslim havens from the Hindu-Muslim strife perennial in India.

Today there are many people of Pakistani birth and descent who have made Shreveport their home.

The recent Pakistani earthquake has produced a death toll of over 20,000. That offers us a global prespective on the Katrina disaster.
