The Punjab on either side of the border were originally part of the larger Punjab province until 1947. The Indian side has further carved out the Punjab region into multiple states

Quote from: quaziright on June 14, 2018, 07:42:05 PMNot sure what's the point of your reference to bangladesh. That would be no different as luxembourg or the punjab. On Sudan, it would have been Sudan's insistence that South Sudan call itself something else as it is the original entity if one were to use the analogy of FYROM & Greece. However, again, Sudan & south Sudan are different, because unlike FYROM, south Sudan was indeed borne out of Sudan itself.
