    If Pakistan was in the ME, in business terms, it'd come under "EMEA"

    It doesn't. To take the term "middle east" too, that's geographically west Asia. Pakistan is in south Asia

    Lol...

    Whether Iran is the middle east is contentious nevermind damn Pakistan.
    Pakistan's connections with South Asia are far more controversial than Iran's connections with the Middle East! It's says a lot that the UN thinks that even Iran could be included in South Asia.

    I have seen several maps placing Pakistan in the Middle Eastern economic sphere. It's well known that India barely trades with Pakistan.http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/c...ddle-east/3882

    not trading with a country in SA doesn't make it any less south asian, trading with the middle east does not make it middle eastern.

    I somewhat respect Saudi Arabia and Arabs. They have an interesting culture, and they are far more artractive than Pakistanis.

    Historically, before the Mughal Empire, Pakistan wasn't part of India. Neither empires (UK or Mughal) involved the southern extrem of India like Sri Lanka or Maldives!

    I don't consider Pakistanis to be South Asian.

    They look more like a Middle Eastern ethnicity and I always confuse Pakistanis for Middle Easterners. Their anthropology also make them closer to Middle Easterners than to Indians.

    Their culture is also mostly of Middle Eastern descent. Their language is written in a Middle Eastern script (and a lot of Indians don't speak Hindi anyway) and their only unique tie to India is the British import of cricket.

    Economically, they are also far more integrated into Middle East than into South Asia.I've met so many Indians who talk of 'Indian' as if Pakistanis weren't South Asian, and so much **** exists between the two ethnicities.
    Meh, pakistanis do look kinda persion/ middle-eastern.

    This is not an acknowledgement of "attraction", calm yourself. Respect Saudi Arabia? Please take the women of your household there and you'll get all the "respect" you want

    Regressive*, lol, I think that too but then again I havent been there . So calm down white boy, because you'll probably be having curry tomorrow. And in terms of agressiveness, our media culture speaks for itself. Have you seen the conditions of Syria/Iraq/Yemen? Thats the middle east. I dont even get why your so obsessed with whether Pakistanis are middle eastern or whatever that you decided to make a thread. And please get yourself to Shariah and Saudi Arabia, your new dwelling

    Lol Pakistan is in South Asia, whether you like it or not. The only thing 'middle eastern' about Pakistan is that the majority of them are Muslims. Their culture, language and looks are entirely different. If they were to speak their language in the middle-east, not one person would understand them - besides the immigrants of course.

    I don't know why Pakistanis want to be Middle-Eastern so badly. They're leaving behind such beautiful Indian roots. It's just pathetic.

    Btw, I'm a Middle-Eastern and lots of other MEs seem to agree with me.

    I'm Indian and I think exactly like you, but with "Middle Eastern" and "Indin" switched around.

    I actually think ot's racist to group Pakistanis in with Indians.
