Trivia: East Pakistan was renamed what in 1971?
Correct Answer: Bangladesh
So why is this answer correct? : In 1947, as British colonialism came to an end on the Indian subcontinent, Pakistan consisted of two parts, and separating them was the vast sprawl of India. Over the next few decades, tensions rose between the two distinct regions of Pakistan. Pakistan adopted Urdu as its official language, while most people in East Pakistan spoke Bengali and were resistant to the changes. The independent nation of Bangladesh was eventually created in 1971.
