are Scotts the same as the English? German same as the French? Japanese same as Chinese? No.

Pull your head out your ass and realise that whether it seems like it or not, every nation has a unique culture, no matter how small the differences.

I'm Pakistani myself, I was wondering whether people thought that we are two completely different racial groups or if we are the same since Pakistan and India used to be the same country. Didn't think this would spark controversy.

There would be no "pakistan" you dummy
The ethnic groups of Pakistan are different to that of India.
Theres a whole province of Pashtuns and balochis in Pakistan whereas India is dominated by punjabis/gujratis MAINLY
Ofcourse both have SOME same/similar ethnic groups but thats just some

The cultures are different. Pakistan is influenced heavily by Islam and its a muslim country, whereas India is clearly not. You can even tell by the clothes Pakistanis wear or are designed in pakistan which are a lot more modest in comparison to the saris/revealing/tight fit clothing worn in india/bangledesh

Also ask yourself is a pashtun or balochi from Pakistan the same as a gujrati in India? No lol completely different

Do you think the people living in the Baltic States are the same as those living in Russia as they were all part of one country.

Yeah they're totally the same thing. It's not like they're two different countries or something.

Punjabis and Gujratis together make up less than 10% of India's population

Indian population: 1.3 Billion
http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/india-population/

Gujarat's population: Roughly 66 Million
http://www.indiaonlinepages.com/popu...opulation.html

Punjab's population: Roughly 30 Million
http://www.indiaonlinepages.com/popu...opulation.html
96 Million/1.3 Billion = 7.38%
Clearly not the majority :rolleyes:

Yes and no. Yes, because both Pakistanis and Indians are South Asian. No, in the fact that they are both from different countries with different values.

The border between Pakistan and India is artificial, so people living on either side are very similar. However India is like a continent with hundreds of different peoples; those living in the south and east have little in common with Pakistanis.
