Read the source below carefully to answer question (a).
At first the East India Company had a neutral point of view towards religion in India. However, with
the work of missionaries in the sub-continent, the Christian faith of British people living in India
was strengthened. As a result people became more intolerant of Indian traditions and behaviour
and the British began to impose changes on the way Indians lived, which caused resentment and
anxiety.

Bengal was the largest province of India with a population of 85 million people. Lord Curzon, the

In 1927 the British government set up a commission chaired by Sir John Simon as provided

Read the source below carefully to answer question (a).
In 1962, Ayub Khan introduced a new constitution that was largely made up of his own proposals.
The new constitution was aimed at making Ayub Khan’s position more secure and guaranteed
far-reaching powers for the President. It was disliked by many people, especially those in East
Pakistan who felt that they would have little part in governing Pakistan. As a result within a decade
there was a need to introduce a new constitution.
(a) Describe the terms of the 1973 Constitution.

[4]

(b) Why were there so many governments between 1951 and 1958?

[7]

(c) Was the promotion of Islamic values the most important achievement of General Zia-ul-Haq’s
domestic policies between 1977 and 1988? Explain your answer.
[14]

5

Read the source below carefully to answer question (a).
Benazir Bhutto described her time as Prime Minister as problematic:
‘I found that people opposed me simply on the grounds that I was a woman. The clerics took to the
mosque saying that Pakistan had thrown itself outside the Muslim world by voting for a woman,
that a woman had taken a man’s place in an Islamic society. My opponents reduced themselves to
verbal abuse rather than discuss issues simply because I was a woman.’
(a) Describe the problems caused by family feuds that faced the Benazir Bhutto governments. [4]
(b) Why did Pakistan distrust India so much between 1971 and 1988?

[7]

(c) How successful was Pakistan in its relationship with Afghanistan between 1947 and 1999?
