Map of the former East Pakistan within a Federated Pakistan.

East Pakistan was provincial part of Pakistan. Between 1955 and 1971, Pakistan was made of West Pakistan (which is reverted back to, and simply called Pakistan) and East Pakistan, which is now known as Bangladesh. In 1971, there was the War of Secession, Bangladesh Liberation War, where East and West Pakistan fought each other. The Republic of India also took full advantage in its involvement in taking part in the war, on the side of East Pakistan, to weaken Pakistanis overall. East Pakistan became the Independent state of Bangladesh on the 16th of December in 1971 (Fall of Dacca). The term East Pakistan became Redundant.
