What does Pakistan mean?

Pakistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a sovereign country in South Asia. The name Pakistan means Land of (the) Pure in Urdu and Persian. The name is also an acronym representing the people who live in PAKSTAN—by which it means the five Northern units of India viz: Punjab, North-West Frontier Province (Afghan Province), Kashmir, Sind, and Baluchistan. The letter ‘i’ became the defacto addition to ease pronunciation and form the linguistically correct name.
