The Trouble with Pakistan's White Stripe
Part 1 of 2
Mobeen Azhar hears how Pakistan's founder, Mohammed Jinnah envisaged a Pakistan where minorities were part of the country, symbolised by the white stripe of the country’s flag, but he questions whether that vision is being respected over 60 years since Pakistan was born. The green part of the national flag of Pakistan consists of one white crescent with a white star above it. The non Muslim population of the country is signified by the white part of the flag and the green part stands for Islam.
