You are right Pakistanis are different. Most of Them are desperate to become Arabs and why would they want to belong the religion whose followers brutalized their own Hindu ancestors this is beyond me

But the funny thing is many Arabs make fun of them because they mangle the Arabic language and the way they dress and the food they eat and their "poor body hygeine" and they call them names like Masakeen men el-Hind wa el-Bakistan or those poor ones from India and Pakistan and it is an insult in Arabic. Indian Muslims are regarded as not very smart and Pakistanis are regarded as pathological liars and it is not fair but this is what many Arabs believe and let us not forget the physical and sexual abuse that is inflicted on many of them when they work in the Gulf or SA but the strange thing is they go back for more abuse

As for what I call Tablighee dress code it is very alien to the Arabs with the big beard stained with Henna and the shaved moustache and wearing a Shalwar Qamiz and in these fur hats. To the Arabs they look like clowns

But think about it for a minute the convert brings to his new religion fanaticism (to prove that he is really a convert) and in the case of Pakistanis many ideas from their previous religion the likes of the Henna color (compare this with the color of saffron in Indian religions) and the Hafiz thing or the memorization of the Qur'an without even understanding what the text is saying and this must be from the memorization of Hindu texts by Brahmans. The Shalwar Qamiz is not an Arab dress it must be from India or centeral Asia but it is an alien dress to the Arabs

Their food is very alien to the Arabs and Arabs always make fun of it

I can go on and on but the only Pakistani that I respect is Ibn Warraq and the rest of them are beyond help
