What do you know about Pakistan?

  1. From a Saudi point of view, Pakistanis are our brothers and sisters and we think they are number one Saudi Arabia ally.

    When you ask any Saudi what do you know about “bakistan” (this is how we pronounce it), they will tell you it’s a country with a Muslim majority and the only Muslim country that has nuclear weapons (and we really proud of that.)

    In term of food, we can’t distingush between Pakistani or Indian cuisine, both are delicious and we can’t get enough of their food. Lamb Biriyani speaks for itself, we LOVE it.

    In term of people, Pakistani females are famous in Saudi Arabia as doctors (especially as obstetrician and gynecologist) and as English teachers in female section in most Saudi universities. On the other hand, Pakistani males dominate these jobs in the whole country: taxi and truck driving, tailoring (both men and women dress), all types of construction and decoration works, and most of the IT jobs in the government or in private businesses.

    Pakistanis come the second after Indonesians as the number of pilgrims for Mecca and Medina. You can easily see the love of Medina and prophet Muhammed PBUH among Pakistanis more than on any other nationality. They wish to die in this place if they could. They wait for hours at the gate of (Alrawdhah Alshariefah) to then enter and pray there whatever the outside temprature is.

    The famous Pakistani among Arab is the poet Muhammed Iqbal. We study some of his poems in school and many Arab poets influenced by him. However, for Saudis, the most famous is the hero Farman Ali Khan who sacrificed his life to save the life of 14 people in Jeddah flood. He awarded the King Abdul Aziz medal of the First Order, which is the highest award you can get in the Kingdom, and there is a street with his name.

    We really like Pakistanis and share with them alot of things but two things we don’t like about them. First, they are stubborn and difficult to convince but once they are convinced they are trustworthy and never stab you in the back. The other thing we don’t like is they are so serious and lack the sense of humor sometimes. All Saudis agree “don’t do a prank to a Pakistani or an Afghani and don’t tell them a joke” they may hit you in your face so easily if they feel it is offensive without any warning. Be serious with them and watch your words 😉

    Personally, I respect Pakistan and wish to visit it one day. Pakistanis are our neighbors, friends, and coworkers. Except for the language and nationality, we share many common traditions and culture. Most of the time you can’t tell if the man in the street is a Pakistani or Saudi if he does not dress a Thoub or Shalwar Kameez.

  2. I love this kind of question because I can just, without any research or verification, list everything I heard, read or got told, in complete innocence. I’m relying on you good Pakistani Quorans to set me straight in case my answer contains nonsense, which it certainly will.

    So. I’m from Germany, where Pakistan is rarely covered in the news except if some shit goes down in Afghanistan or religious nutjobs kill people. Without the help of Google, here goes.

    It split from India when the British rule ended and became a state for the Indian Muslims. Millions of people were displaced in the process.
    Bangladesh was once part of Pakistan. Lack of political representation of the Bengalis led to protests and an autonomy movement and, eventually, to an independence war that had India join in. The Pakistani army murdered a fair number of Bengalis before being defeated.
    Pakistan and India really don’t get along. They fought not only over Bangladesh but also over Jammu and Kashmir, and their enmity continues to this day. Wasn’t there some border spat last year?
    The main language is Urdu, an Indo-European language which was once barely distinguishable from Hindi. Since the two-country split, the languages have diverged, with Arabic and Persian influences in Urdu and Sanskrit ones in Hindi. It’s written with the Arabic script.
    Islam is the official religion, although Pakistan is not a theocracy like Iran or hyper-Islamic like Saudi Arabia. I don’t know how other religions are treated. It’s a conservative society where Islamic values are of considerable importance.
    You had a military dictatorship for a long time (Musharraf), but that ended a while ago. There was a popular female politician, Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated. Also a while ago, can’t remember the date.
    The Taliban are a lot of trouble in Western Pakistan. You guys try to flush them out every now and then, but the geography makes it really difficult. There have been accusations that Pakistan doesn’t really do much against the Taliban and actually sees them as allies. No idea how true this is.
    Your flag is green and white and has the crescent moon of Islam on it.
    Your capital is Islamabad.
    You have nukes.
    Many of you have emigrated to Europe, to the UK especially. “Paki” is a racial slur.
    Among bagpipers, Pakistan is famous for flooding the world with extremely cheap, badly-made instruments that often end up in the hands of clueless enthusiasts in Europe and America. They are absolutely unplayable and ugly as sin.

    That’s about all I have for now. Looking forward to your corrections.

  4. Now, I am going to share my knowledge with you about Pakistan.

    Pakistan got independence from Sub-Continent on 14 August 1947. Our first Governor General was Quaid-e-Azam and first Prime Minister was Liaquat Ali khan.

    But with very sadness, just after One year of Independence, Our First Governor General and Father of Nation Muhammad Ali Jinnah died due to Tuberculosis.

    After three year’s of Quaid’s death, On 16 October 1951, Khan was shot twice and killed during a public meeting of the Muslim City League at Company Bagh (Company Gardens), Rawalpindi. The police immediately shot the presumed assassin who was later identified as Saad Akbar Babrak also known as ‘Said Akbar’.

    Due to these all Situations, Government of Pakistan stop’s working on National Anthem of Pakistan and in August 1954 Pakistan’s Officially Adopted it’s National Anthem which is also known as Pak Sarzamin. It’s was Written was by One of the Most famous Poet of Urdu Literature Hafeez Jullundhri in 1952 and it’s was composed by Ahmed G Chagla in 1949.

    In Pakistan Democracy was facing many problems and today’s also democracy is not much strong as we see in others countries due to which After nine years of efforts, Pakistan was successful in framing a constitution. The Constituent Assembly adopted it on 29 February 1956, and it was enforced on 23 March 1956, proclaiming Pakistan to be an Islamic Republic.But on 7 October 1958, President Iskander Mirza staged a coup d’état. He abrogated the constitution, imposed martial law and appointed General Muhammad Ayub Khan as the Chief Martial Law Administrator and Aziz Ahmad as Secretary General and Deputy Chief Martial Law Administrator.

    In October 1958, President Iskander Mirza abrogated the constitution. Shortly afterwards General Ayub Khan deposed Iskandar and declared himself president. … It was promulgated by President Ayub on 1 March 1962 and finally came into effect on 8 June 1962.

    One Night in April 1965 India attacked Pakistan from many sectors with full power and might but our Brave and Prudent Soldiers who were at borders, stopped them at borders and destroyed India’s large men power just at the start of war and break India’s Backbone after few hours of war and India did appeal in Security Council for Ceasefire and as a result on 3 September 1965 war was stopped but many authors and writers have wrote that Pakistan was won that war because Inida’s Condition in that war was not good there,India also gone to Security Council for Ceasefire.

    and After this in 1971 , again Pakistan and India’s war was started on the issue of Bangladesh. It’s period was 3 Dec 1971 – 16 Dec 1971.

    and many more but know i am going to tell you some fact about Pakistan.
