To be fair, Pakistan (albeit with a larger Catholic population) has had a cardinal, viz., Joseph Marie Anthony Cordeiro (January 19, 1918 to February 11, 1994), Archbishop of Karachi.

Ironically, he attended a seminary in Sri Lanka (which does have a cardinal, the ‘Tanned Ratzinger‘).

Cordeiro was created by Paul VI in 1973 and participated in both of the 1978 conclaves.

India currently has 5 cardinals.
