    Erm....Okay.

    I don't know of any Indians that call Pakistani's 'Indian'. The nearest I ever heard was a British-Pakistani calling himself 'Pakistanian'.

    Any Pakistani's that want to describe themselves as Indian or South Asian, it's up to them. It was one country once upon a time. And anyone intelligent enough to know the truth of Pakistan's origin.......Whatever, those Pakistanis that want to be Arab or Persian...again, it's up to them.

    I don't think any Indians are going to lose sleep over Pakistanis that don't want to be Indian, lol.

    I'm Azerbaijani and sometimes I get lumped with Turks, Russians, Europeans, Asians, Persians, and I get over it. I literally don't care. I'm me. You're you. Why does it matter how people categorise you?
    As an Azerbaijani, you must have limits on who can represent your ethnicity. Would you be comfortable with someone saying: "Your race is represented by a Chinese person because you are Asian".

    It doesn't

    I am just correcting things people are saying that are categorically untrue.
    To answer your question, probably because Pakistan is on the Indian plate, also known as the South Asian plate. There are so many ethnicities in the area it's far simpler to call people originating there "South Asian."

    We have different face shapes. We have vastly different cultures.

    It's like lumping Turkey or Syria in with Europe. How many on here would say Turkey or Syria are European countries and that Turkish people are European?

    The differences between India and Pakistan are greater than the differences between Europe and Turkey.

    How would you feel if someone asked a Turkish or Syrian person to represent the "European" ethnicity or race?

    A Pakistani isn't the same ethnicity as other South Asians. Even Pakistanis themselves prefer to relate more to Middle Easterners. Pakistanis shouldn't be used to "box-tick" for other South Asians or Indians.

    They might be part of an "Asian" ethnicity, but certainly not an "Indian" ethnicity.
    Bull****!

    Considering Pakistan was formed out of India, and the South Asian reference is because it's in South Asia.

    Doesn't matter at all what they want to be related to, facts are facts.

    Tbh I don't really care, when I have to declare it on a form I just tick the box that says "white other" lol

    That doesn't really make sense, surely if you want to imply I love Hindu boys, it would make more sense to say I lose sleep when they are around.


    You're not very smart are you?
