Since the UK has had a large amount of immigration from Pakistan, I think it is important to discuss that Pakistan has been named the 4th most dangerous country in the world, according to the Global Travel and Tourism Report by the World Economic Forum.

So why is Pakistan so dangerous? Yes it's poor, but so is the whole of South America, Africa and most of Asia. Yet, Pakistan is ranking higher in terms of how dangerous it is. There must be other reasons? From what I can read, the main reason seems to be terrorism and sexual assault.

Also, should we be allowing immigration from a country that is so dangerous?

Bruv you call us Pakistanis dangerous!? **** you we're bare kind we bare peaceful and all that I'll **** you up.

In all seriousness, I don't think by British law you can ban immigration from Pakistan, since Pakistan is part of the Commonwealth.

Well theres a lot of corruption going on there so maybe thats why and you shouldn't stop people coming over because of the rest of the country. You closing your doors just makes them hate you more. The world should be for everyone and everyone should be able to travel everywhere not be restricted because of where they are born. Imagine you were born there and you wanted to leave for a better life but were rejected how would you feel? None of us own this earth and one day we will all be dead. Fighting for some chunk of land that one day will not even be ours.

Thats kind of funny because the Pakistani people I have met at school are all light hearted joker types who you can't help but get along with, even if the people they hang around with suck.

The problem with that ideology is, if we open our doors to the whole of the world (including Africa, South America, and Asia), we will no longer be a nice place to live. We will no longer have free healthcare or other benefits, there will not be enough houses for everyone resulting in millions of people living on the streets, there will be millions of people unemployed etc.

Only a tiny % of the Pakistanis in the UK originate from the actual dangerous parts of the country. 'Danger' is all relative anyway.

And if you think like that good luck with your future endeavours. You couldn't be more wrong. Most of our doctors that you mention are from around the world. The engineers the same. The food the same. The businesses the same. Go ahead do what you want but the world isn't the way you think it is.
I am sorry but the world doesn't work the way you think it works. ffs i cba to even bother debating over this because there is no end to it so i will end it good day sir
and I apologise if you found this offensive

Yes, doctors and engineers are good. But the majority of people who would be coming would not be doctors or engineers.

The reality is, if we opened our doors to the world, hundreds of millions of people from South America, Africa and Asia would move into West Europe and North America. If you think that would be beneficial or maintainable, then sorry but you're wrong.

I'm sorry but this idea you have is a fantasy that would not work.

"The World Economic Forum recently released their Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report, which analyzes the state of the travel and tourism sectors in 136 countries around the globe.
As a part of this report, the WEF ranks the safety of each of those countries. To come up with this ranking, the forum "measures the extent to which a country exposes tourists and businesses to security risks mainly related to serious harm to people (violence and terrorism)." The ranking does not take petty crime into account."

That's an extract from the article you quoted. Based on the quotes I've highlighted, you can see the ranking is referring to countries that pose a danger to tourists.

This is a list based on a Global Peace Index report from the Institute for Economics and Peace, where the rankings are quite different, as they take into consideration the overall amount of danger, to the people actually living there, as well as tourists.

Surely a country like Syria is a more dangerous place to visit or reside in right now compared to Colombia... which has been ranked the most dangerous country in the article you've given.

Quite interesting results on the whole, actually.

If the list is for most dangerous to tourists, doesn't that mean it's even more supportative of not allowing immigration to us from these countries?
