    Curries are not associated with any nationalities or religion. First, curry is associated with the Indian subcontinent which is made up of many different religion such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Muslim, Sikhism, and many others. Second, the area that is today Pakistan was once part of India and was broken off from India after India gain independence from Britain to form West Pakistan and East Pakistan which are now named Pakistan and Myanmar, respectively.

    Last, the very word "curry" is an English word and some of the recipes have been anglicised from the Indian dish and word Kahdi. Curry have also been changed in other cultures in Asia in places such as Thailand, Japan, Singapore, and elsewhere.

    Because they eat it too.  And Indian is not a religion, Muslim is.  There are Indian Muslims.

    Curry is a general name for spiced dishes from the Indian subcontinent, not just the country of India.

    Could it be because Pakistan was once part of India?

    Curry based dishes are enjoyed in both countries also Bangladesh. Difference is that in 

    Muslim areas they prepare it halal which really isn't much different than kosher for Jews.

    Source(s): Having friends from all three countries, some of whom are Muslim, and others are Hindu.
