One of the World's Longest Bus Routes to Cover 4,000 Miles - as part of the news series by GeoBeats. You need to travel 4000 miles - how would you do it? Air travel, ofcourse! But now if you are going from Birmingham, UK to Mirpur, Kashmir, you can take a bus! Hard to believe but it's true. Hi I am Matt, discussing plans for a new bus service spanning 4,000 miles, making it one of the world's longest bus routes. The journey will take the bus through seven countries in 12 days. Passengers will reportedly be charged about $215 per ticket, which will save them more than $650 when compared to air travel costs. Although there have been challenges in negotiating with transport companies, four luxury buses are slated to be on the road once a fortnight. A Birmingham Labour official states “It’s a great idea that will bring the two cities closer together and be a real life experience, particularly for younger people.” However, there are some security fears as the bus is planned to go through parts of Pakistan where Taliban commanders may be hiding. What do you think - is this bus service a good idea?

True History of Pakistan

The people of Pakistan are descendents of different racial groups and sub-racial stocks, who entered the subcontinent over the past 5000 years mainly from central and western Asia. Though, Pakistan as an independent country dates only from August 14th, 1947 yet the territories of Pakistan are heir to one of the richest and the oldest civilizations and settlements of the world. Unlike the popular misconception, the areas called Pakistan today had invariably remained as a single, compact and a separate geographical and political entity and always maintained its identity and individuality separate from its neighbor India since ancient times. The world has always known two different countries and cultures in the sub-continent; one based on the Sindhu or Indus (Pakistan) and the other on the Ganges Valley (India) known as Bharatvarta. The Sindhu Land was always notable for its independent existence, completely detached from Gangetic Valley or India. So Pakistan as a part of India is a weak theory having no historical grounding. It was indeed the famous Two Nation Theory formulated by Iqbal and realized by Jinnah that led to the creation of Pakistan in 1947....
