The Difference Between Pakistan and Bangladesh

Article Summary   by:SThap     Original Author: unknown
ª
 
Pakistan and Bangladesh both were the part of India prior 1947. They are the world’s second and third most populous Muslim-majority countries but dramatically different from each other. 
 
****CULTURAL DIFFERENCES- Bangladesh comprises majority of Bengalis where Punjabis are the dominant group in Pakistan.

****POLITICAL DIFFERENCE- both countries have experienced the heavy involvement of the military in politics, but in the Bangladeshi army withdrew of politics in 1990, and continued to stay out. In Pakistan, where even today, when Pakistan has a civilian prime minister and an elected parliament, the army is universally acknowledged as the country’s political power controller.

****ECONOMIC DIFFERENCE- Both countries could neither sustain economic growth rates anywhere near its potential, nor come close to meeting its poverty reduction goals. The only difference is Pakistan has produced impressive results at the macro level. But political and economic uncertainties continue to place constraints on Pakistan’s ability to perform up to its potential where Bangladesh’s economic future is clouded primarily by endemic poor governance.

****SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT- Bangladesh has outstripped Pakistan in a number of important areas, including the key area of population growth. The fertility rate in Pakistan as recently as 2000 remained a high 4.7 births/woman, whereas in Bangladesh it had fallen to 3.1 births/ woman. As primary school attendance and participation in the work force – Bangladeshi women are far ahead of their Pakistani counterparts.
