    Guys, I am starting this thread to have informed discussions about the ideology of Pakistan and where this ideology is taking the country and the region.

    Its not for political and military discussions but mainly for discussing the ideology and its effects. How it makes the country see itself, its impact on the Pakistani psyche, its distance from the reality and so on.

    A good watch though obviously highly one sided account of what transpired then.

    Also the movie makers did take a look at the communal troubles in India (especially the Babri episode) but forgot to take a look at Pakistan! If India is struggling with finding the right mix of secularism and democracy, Pakistan has totally failed to meet the words of Mr. Jinnah.

    There are hardly any minorities left there, almost total ethnic cleansing, sectarian clashes, the surrender to the worst fanatic elements, the alternate civil and military rules, the country standing always at the brink of default, moving from one disaster to another and threatening the world how its implosion would be bad for the world so they should help it save from itself.

    Pakistan's identity crisis and its impact on Pakistan's world view

    we all know that pakistan was created by partitioning the then india. many muslims went to pakistan from different parts of ancient india. so logically, all of them were indians before partition. that means that they share the same history as we do. their forefathers were also once hindus, budhists or jains, their ancestors also suffered under the brutal invasions from babur, ghazani etc.

    inspite of these realities, a strange delusion is commonly noticed among common pakistanis: most of them claim foreign origin. they claim that they are successors of babur, or ghazani or even sikander..etc. why is it so? lets discuss the pshycological reasons for such delusion. and its impact on the world view of common pakistanis. also, how this view impacts indo-pak relations.

    of late, some pakistanis have discovered strange pride in claiming IVC as pakistani. lets also discuss in this thread, the reasons for this new found love.

    the issues to be discussed in this thread are:
    #why do pakistanis claim foreign ancestory and behave like wannabe arabs?
    #what impact does it have on their worldview and relations with the world including india?
    #why are some pakistanis suddenly claiming IVC as pakistani?
