    Maybe because they're being referred as "terrorist" all the time and keep on getting hate.

    I remember being asked if I was Pakistani once I was soooo offended.

    Weird part was I don't even know why! I just was.

    I am European and Middle Eastern, so I was baffled how I could be confused for a Pakistani.

    In my experience they're quite proud. The ones who appear ashamed are somalians.
    yesss I've noticed somalian are quite ashamed too.

    but one thing that makes me think some pakis are ashamed is that they lie saying they're mixed with Arab or something

    because pakistan is a terrible country, hence why pakistanis in the UK don't want to live there anymore
    I'm not being "racist" - pakistan is a host to misogyny, rape, homophobia, child violence, child marriage, stark political corruption and authoritarianism, poverty, relative illiteracy, terrorist-protection, etc - compare that to the UK. it's simply not a good country to live in by any metric. why would you think pakistanis should be proud of pakistan? are you saying that any citizen of any country should actually be proud of their country whether or not it is actually good? that's insane. should you encourage north koreas to be supportive of north korea, for instance? "culture" is one thing, but the substantive and holistic reality is quite another
    and how did you come across most of that ********?
    from the media?
    of course.

    lol, who gives a sh*t, let people be what they wanna be, honestly shouldn't affect you! And not as if Pakistan has a very beautiful image painted in today's society, I'm proud of being Pakistani, I am the way I am, but couldn't care less if someone else didn't hold pride in their ethnicity

    bruh thats meme OP said majority somalis are ashamed which is ********* imo. How can that be possibly true? OP probs met a few sour grapes and now is generalising which isnt fair. I admit yes we have crazy somalis saying they are half arab and all that ****. But not a lot. The word 'majority' is incorrect to use.

    "majority of the Somalis I'VE SEEN"
    and if you read my comment properly, you wouldve found that I said some pakis say they're mixed with Arab because they're ashamed of being a paki.
