Why did East Pakistan separate from West Pakistan?
Because there was a war between Pakistan and India. And some parts of Pakistan were surrender by India. India was able to prove that this is neither a part of Pakistan nor India. many Pakistaniz and Indianz were in that area called "Kashmir" so it is still a constant issue between Pakistan and India. It needs to be resolve if they want to be friends of eachother .. Hope it helps ~~ i just know these basic things
East Pakistan separated from West Pakistan because of neglect and abuse on part of West Pakistan. East Pakistan was fairly lawless and forgotten by West Pakistan. East Pakistan had no voice when it came to its own affairs, as well.
