Here is the root of Pakistan's political problems:

"The population comprises several ethnic groups. As of 2009, the Punjabi population dominates with 78.7 million (44.15%), followed by 27.2 million (15.42%) Pashtuns, 24.8 million (14.1%) Sindhis, 14.8 million (10.53%) Seraikis, 13.3 million (7.57%) Muhajirs and 6.3 million (3.57%) Balochs. The remaining 11.1 million (4.66%) belong to various ethnic minorities.[225] There is also a large worldwide Pakistani diaspora, numbering over seven million.[226]"

Pakistan is many nations basically "united" only by Islam.
