before you fully believe that european pakistani! Pakistan has sindh and balochistan. these 2 states are the largest in Pakistan. and Sindhis and Balochis are not Pathans. in any case pathans and other persians and arabs invaded India (the current portion of Afghanistan n Pakistan). before Afghanistan became islamic, it was predominantly Buddhist and Hindu. well before islam arrived in Persia it was Zoroastrian. now we all know that islam didnt go anywhere with flowers. anyway, the claim that pakistanis are majority pathans is not true. even the punjabis can't really be called pathans....
