Excavations at Harrapa, Moenjodaro and Kot Diji have brought to light the evidence of an advanced civilization, existing even in most ancient times. Around 1500 BC the Aryans overwhelmed this region, by and by, influenced the Hindu civilization, whose center moved to the Ganges valley, further to East. Later, the Persians occupied the Northern regions in the 5th century, up to the 2nd century BC. There are several stupas and monasteries of the Gandhara civilization which date back from 6th Century when it formed part of the Achaemenid Empire of Persia (518 BC). The Greeks came in 325 BC under Alexander the Great from Mecedonia. Since then it remained under the successive domination of the Mauryans, the Bactrian Greeks, Scythians, Parthians, Kushanas and Sasanians, till its final destruction by the White Huns in the 5th century AD. In 712 AD the Arabs led by Muhammad Bin Qasim, landed in the Southern coast near Karachi and ruled the lower parts of Pakistan for two hundred years. During this period Islam took to the roots and influenced the life, culture and traditions of the people.

In the tenth Century Ad began the systematic conquest of the South Asian Sub-continent by the Muslims from Central Asia who ruled almost whole of the Sub-continent till 18th Century, when British took over reins and ruled the Sub-continent for almost two hundred years. The Muslims revival began towards the end of the 19th century when Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, a renowned Muslim leader and educationist, launched a movement for the renaissance of the Muslims of the Sub-contient. In 1930, the well-known poet-philosopher Allama Iqbal conceived the Idea of a separate homeland for the Muslims of the Sub-continent. In 1940, All-India Muslim League demanding an independent homeland for the Muslims of India adopted a resolution. After seven year of untiring struggle under the brilliant leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Pakistan emerged on the map of the world as sovereign state on 14th August 1947, when the British India was partitioned into two sovereign states-Pakistan and India.
