Pathans the main bulk of Pakistani population ? What about the Punjabis who dominate the army and the Sindhis who dominate the business , and Balochis who want a separate state. Pathans lost tribes of Israel ! Man that is the biggest joke of the day. Even I have read this crap on the net. Tomorrow I start eating with chopsticks and two generations later my grand kids claim to be manchus ! Pathans don't even form 10 % of the total Pakistani headcount. And about half of them are in Afghanistan. Wont be surprised if some mollah claims to be the true Jew tomorrow.

Pathans were so unreliable that neither the mughals nor the British trusted them. After Kabul was never lost to arms but by the weakness of corrupt commanders. Pakistan and India do have much in common be it culture or food habits. And most of the Pakistanis are converted hindoos who were forced to convert to Islam by the sword. When Alexander invaded India (Much before the days of Mohammad the nomad) pakistan was very much hindoo and a king Puru (Porus in greek) who fought bravely against the macadonians was a Hindoo You seriously need to update.
