You are out of line by about ten percent, Pakistan is 98% muslim, 2% are non-muslims, with hindu's in sindh region, parsi's, kadiani's, and christians. The current population of pakistan is 160 million, more than india which stands at about (at maximum) according to stats, 150 million.

 

Assalamu alaikum

asalamu alaikum

 

dont mess with these figures but i assure you these are correct...

 

Muslim 97% (Sunni 77%, Shi'a 20%), Christian, Hindu, and other 3%

 

Punjabi 48%, Sindhi 12%, Siraiki (a Punjabi variant) 10%, Pashtu 8%, Urdu (official) 8%, Balochi 3%, Hindko 2%, Brahui 1%, English (official and lingua franca of Pakistani elite and most government ministries), Burushaski, and other 8%

 

want to know anything else about pakistan...? anything like about the country...

 

i mean with a 97% Muslim population, what are pubs and bars and mass opioum production doing in the country... i bet the remaining 3% control all this dont they... hehe

unfortunately, Karachi is full of racist people who vote for Pure secular racist party MQM, But it is good to know that MMA 4 seats from karachi and they also dicrease the vote bank of MQM in karachi. My family always gave their votes to MQM but this time most of my family members didn't vote, some vote for MQM and some vote for MMA.

Insha Allah, in next elections, MQM will  be gone.

 

Assalam Aleekum

Please, don't generalize or stereotype the entire city. So there are 15million people in Karachi. How many voted for MQM. And how many decided not to

vote for anybody. You also have to realize the ignorance level in some parts of

the city.

As for MMA, Its lesser of the two evils. If you have a close look at the

all the parties in this alliance you will understand what I am trying to say.

They are not true Islamic parties. They are first political than Islamic.

And It doesn't work that way.

Yes, MMA is better than the rest.

 

As for racism I think Muhajir racism is there but support for MQM has declined.

:D for all the info. InshAllah in a couple of years I will move to Pakistan for a while - just to see if I like it there enough to live. I was born and brought up in London - but have visited Pakistan over 20 times on holiday. MashAllah many people I have met there have warmth in their hearts and I personally have felt my imaan strengthen just by being in the presence of so many muslims.

 

Of course there are problems there, just like every other country - but for me, the essence is being surrounded by muslims - some parts of society may need encouragement to get closer to the Deen of Allah subhanahu wa'tala - but perhaps it is our duty as Overseas Pakistanis who mashAllah want to become better muslims, to go back to Pakistan and show people there that we are willing to give up life in the West purely to be surrounded by muslims.

 

I would be interested to hear from more brothers/sisters who have moved, or are considering a move to Pakistan to express their views about leading an Islamic life in Pakistan. I personally want to get married there, and bring up a family there - because I do not feel it wise to bring up children in the UK - with all the fitnah here.

 

If I find Pakistan is not my cup of tea, I may inshAllah try other countries in the East. What do you all think? A good place to bring up an Islamic family?

I've already e-mailed a government department to ask if they offer any assistance to Pakistanis living aborad but want to return. Waiting for a response.....

yeh i think ur life will be much better living in pakistan than in england. i've visited back home many times and the people there are much better and the kids are far more Islamic. it makes u sad to see so many muslim kids in britain that have taken up the values of the West and see Islam as just another religion. :D

Yes, it was active, but not that much since Busharaf came. It is more political than "Islami."

 

Alhumdulilah, the good thing is that they encourage seeking ilm and implementing it, and don't stick to just one book. They do not sugar coat this deen, and they have never forgotten about kashmir.

 

As for moving there, it depends because the amount of practicing muslims varies from place to place. Big cities have some practicing ones, but also a lot of modernism. Northern Pakistan might be better.

Basically avoid any loaded-with-shirk cities like some in Punjab and Sindh where not everyone is upon the Sunnah, and many who claim that worship the graves of "saints."

Asalamo-alaikum!

I m quite dissapoointed with the talks going on here about my country …..

Good and bad people are every where so is in pakistan,,,,,

Some days back I read a news abt the wine factories found in saudiarabia,,,,

By saying this ,,I m not saying that bars and bubs and others bad stuff are legal andd halal for pakistan,,,,but with good things,,there is bad things also,,,,,

Pakistanis have been engaged in a quest to discover what it means to be a Pakistani, and to be a Muslim. In a country as diverse as Pakistan, this has yielded various interpretations over the years.Islam in Pakistan is seen as the founding and unifying ideology of the nation.so many muslims youngsters of pakistan both guys and girls are taking so much interest in religon,,thats why u can see people all walk of lives in ijtimas,,especially tableeghi jamat and dawaat-e-isami quite popular here .

corruption is one of the biggest problem pakistan is facing,,,and i will balme the ploitical parties for this,,,all political leaders are same...even MMA is also bit like them....

while talking abt my city karachi,,do remember,,The port city of Karachi is

Pakistan’s largest city and commercial heart, a big, busy metropolis with a hectic mix of

ethnic and sectarian communities from all over the country and some foriegners also lived their plosish,thai and indians and bangladeshi,chinese etc , including a large number of

rootless elements who have migrated there in search of jobs.

karachi is a home of most modern people with most religous people..and middle lot also there,,,not only karachi,,happen to be correct for other big cities also,,,

some link can give u more idea abt Islam in pakistan ,,,

but with all these things ,,,there are so many bad things in pakistan also,,but it is not good to make fun of it,,,,abt khilafah ,,,Allah knows better.

sorry,,i am a little angry while posting this post,,,so forgive me,,,no offence intended,,,

A great website to learn about the Muslim history in the sub-continent, their struggle for the establishment of a homeland where they can live according to Islamic Shari'ah.
