      Jun 21 2013: Pakistan's are not what they are shown on TVs and News. Cool, loving and oriented their lives to family ethics and morals. Its really surprising if you dont know much about Pakistan but it always about going ahead and knowing whats unknown.
      Pakistan was never the same though times are difficult.

      If you want to know more about us, want to explore Pakistan, Ask me anything.
      Lets break the stereotypes.

      A country that won worldcups of Cricket, Hockey, Suqash, Snooker. A country full of musical giants and inspiring youth.

      Thankyou for Replying

      Jun 22 2013: "Pakistani people are more honest then Afghans and Arabs"

      Dear Zx, pray do not generalize (like u did in your post). One person may be more honest than other, but you can not compare nations, its only helps in stereotyping people and stereotyping is not good. Portraying Indians as scammers is also not justifiable, hope you realize that you are talking about billion people.

          Jun 23 2013: Zx,

          Sorry if I went overboard with my reaction. Its true that I am not responsible for my fellow citizens, I should be responsible towards my government though.

          You must watch Ted talk by Chimamanda......she elegantly explains whats wrong with generalizations, hope u like that talk :)
