Image of Pakistan in your sight?

How do you feel when you hear about Pakistan?
What stereotypes you have for people of Pakistan?
Do you really think, they are terrorist?
What if a Pakistani adds you on social network?

Kindly be Precise and Short.

    Jul 6 2013: I have friends in Pakistan and have visited the country. The people are no different from anywhere else in the world. They want the same things, a good job, enough money to live and give their children an education. They are not terrorists, it is just that terrorists operate in the country.

    Just like the IRA terrorists operated in the UK and Ireland for many years but the British are not terrorists. Memories are short. It is only small minded, bigoted people who stereotype others.

    I am happy to have Pakistani contacts.
