    And you have a huge misconception thinking that people from first world countries think that all Pakistanis are terrorists. By making this comment do you realise that you are the same as the people who do think all Pakistanis are terrorists? There are good and bad people all over the world.

    Hey man i didn't meant any offense, i just wrote it wrong, It's just that the media shows really bad things about us and It will be fair if people think we aren't goodie too shoes.

    :) Let me rephrase

    To the people who thinks Pakistani are terrorist and Pakistan is just a lifeless wasted land please see this video :).

    I am glad that people are positive here :)

    I discovered this myself when I became interested in reading Pakistani English language newspapers and news websites. What I discovered in the comments section was certainly not what CNN or my fellow citizens here in the US would have me believe, that's for sure. What I saw in those comments sections was way more civility, more educated and thoughtful remarks regarding the subject of the article, very very few personal attacks, and just a generally more sophisticated and civil atmosphere than you will ever find on any US-based discussion forums and news outlets. That was a surprise to me.
    Since that time I would have to say that I have come to the conclusion that there must exist a very wide gap between the middle and upper class in Pakistan, and the lower class when it comes to opinions and education. It is the very poor and totally uneducated in Pakistan (and elsewhere) that are easily swayed by propaganda to do things they would not otherwise do.

    No doubt Pakistan is the land of very talented people. most of the Paki professionals are contributing their expertise in the outer world. Pakistan is also an abode of most talented students among other nations. few are like, Ali Moeen Nawazish who made a world record of passing his A Level with 23 A's. then the Arfa Karim following Babar Iqbal who became the youngest Microsoft Certified Professionals at the age of 9. unfortunetly Arfa Karim died at her very young age of 17 in 2012. there is another Pakistani Student worth to mention is Sitara Brooj Akbar.
