Yeah i think it's just that general area in pakistan where everyone is mostly arain
I'm Arain and I found out today that we are of Persian origin. I don't know if I'm being dumb, but this could explain the light skin... (just an assumption)

OMG! I'm also Arian. Tbh I couldn't care less about the caste system. But I hate the fact that Jutts are so vain about it.

I'm Arain too. apparently that's nonsense and isn't backed up by any evidence.

That's also been disproven by DNA evidence. Punjabi Muslims are obsessed with claiming foreign ancestry.

Yes, born and raised in Britain, but ethnically and my parents are from Pakistan.
Why do you think there are so many Paki grooming gangs ?

Its so true. I must say Indian batsmen are good! Hate the fact that Virat Kholi exists! Haha not good for my Green shirts you know. But yepp! A team with Pakistani bowlers and Indian batsmen will do wonders! Omg, don't even talk about Wahab Riaz ♡ and oh Saeed Ajmal!

Lool. So wait, are you Pakistani Arian or Arab Arian? If your'e Pakistani Arian, let's be happy about the fact that we are Pakistanis! Don't tell me you like the fact/assumption that Arians have background of Persians. Not that anything is wrong with it but I'm just happy and content being a Pakistani.

Pakistani. I'm happy with being Pakistani, but honestly we've got such a bad reputation. I don't want to say anything bad about a particular set of people but I believe that we have a bad image because of them...
I'll give you a clue, *cough* some people from Bradford :rolleyes:

That what I think too. Even if we did, we'd still have mixed with the Punjabi population, therefore I'm a proud Punjaban :bhangra:

Urdu, but my parent speak in Punjabi with each other and most guests. I started speaking Punjabi a few months back to make sure my Punjabi is as good as my Urdu. Still needs improving though a bit :/

I love Punjabi, such an awesome language!

Lol but Mirpuris can also look completely different to each other.

I only know of this Arain origin stuff cause I was interested in finding out our background a few years ago, so I did some research :cool: I thought we were descended from Arabs or Persians too at one point.
