He devised the word andfirst published it in the article written by him as "Now orNever“ on 28th January 1933. He constructed the name asan acronym of the different regions constituting the country,which is described as: P for Punjab, A for Afghania (Nowknown as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), K for Kashmir, S forSindh and the suffix -stan from Balochistan, thus forming"Pakstan". An "i" was inserted later for ease inpronunciation. The suffix -stan in Persian means, "homeof" and in Sanskrit means, "place". The Persian word pāk,which means "pure", adds a beautiful shade of meaning, withthe full name thus meaning "land of the pure".The name was criticized for not including Bangladesh in it.
