Pakistan or Pornistan?

By Hamad Dar of KoolMuzone

Disclaimer: This article might not be suitable for all audiences. Readers discretion is advised.

Today Fox News published a report on Pakistan and refereed to it as Pornistan claiming that it is “No. 1 Nation in Sexy Web Searches”. Whatever keywords Fox News has mentioned are factual and not made-up.

I don’t deny the fact that Pakistan ranks 1st on these keywords. I also don’t deny the fact that porn is popular in Pakistan. However, I deny that Pakistan is “No. 1 Nation in Sexy Web Searches” as claimed by Fox News.

Pakistan is top dog in searches per-person for “horse sex” since 2004, “donkey sex” since 2007, “rape pictures” between 2004 and 2009, “rape sex” since 2004, “child sex” between 2004 and 2007 and since 2009, “animal sex” since 2004 and “dog sex” since 2005, according to Google Trends and Google Insights, features of Google that generate data based on popular search terms.

It’s funny how the mentioned keywords are few of the least popular keywords when it comes to pornography. Below is the image of comparison of these keywords along with other major keywords related to pornography like “sex”, “porn”, “big tits”

If you have a look at the image, the search volume for keyword “sex” is FAAAR more than other keywords. Keyword “Porn” has the 2nd highest search volume. Followed by “big tits” and then there is this little search volume for “rape sex” and “horse sex” which you might spot with a magnifying glass.

Since we have an understanding that other keywords consume much largely to porn searches, let’s now have a look at their traffic distribution.

Regional traffic for “Sex”:

Regional traffic for “Porn”:

Regional traffic for “Big tits”:

I don’t see Pakistan occurring even in the top 10 regions here. It’s a shame how Fox news has refereed to a country as Pornistan just to sell off their papers. We all exactly know the status of Fox news in international media. The stunt they played is exactly like referring to Pakistan as “Number 1 nation in music searches” since it ranks number 1 on keyword “Sufi Music”!

Just to add further, as per FoxNews’ formula, whole of United States of America is inhumane and USA is wildest nation as a whole – see following if you don’t believe me:

Update:

Google in a statement has said that facts produced in FoxNews report are not accurate.


  • The report is misleading. There is no doubt a large number of Pakistanis use the Internet for viewing porno graphic materials.

    The truth is that these pornographic websites depend on PAID SUBSCRIBERS.

    95% of paid subscribers are Americans and Europeans.

  • Govt. should take action against it and sue Fox News for ruin respect of Pakistan and claim Harjana.

    Kind regards,

    Vicky

    • Agree with you Vicky.
      but whom you are telling??? Govt???
      A bunch of idiots!

      • Hi
        bro you didn’t say much, our govt is not a bunch of idiots but they are dozens of idiots around us in 4 provinces and working effiently and wid more excellence hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
        Pakistani govt idiots Zindabad

        • Absolutely right bro
          its all about our efficiency to re elect them again and again

  • Well done, great report! Fox news sucks and has always been a biased and sucky new channel.

    Kudos for the research!

  • And we have Nuclear weapons too. Don’t Forget that!
    :p

    There is no factual evidence in FOXY News report! And I am wondering that if they call it PORNISTAN for the reasons they mentioned then what would they term their Culture where a women is raped every two minutes?

  • The fact is pakistan meight be the only nation who have less internet subscribers than a small village of a europeon or any western country. and they think still pakistan have more hits on porn than any wester or may be any middle eastern country.
    that is so lame……

  • Feel sorrow on the report but no problem…even if our guys search such words… I have discussed these kind of search trends with many people and reached to conclusion that when our guys hear in news or on web that westerners do animal sex or incest…then our people tries to search such words to find that what is this actually.

    Secondly, our media should play vital role in replying to such reports. Government should allow English news channels…that it is not allowing on big scale because then their political stories will be seen by whole world…but our media should give time to other issues too…Not only Politics or only criticizing Politicians…

    Media should make documentaries to let our people understand that where we are going…and where left of world is going…

  • Its possible that the results are very true but FACTS are not against us.

    INDIA is the biggest country that has most people who are HIV positive.

    And what the searches are all about, Britishers and Americans are the people who do the dirty work.

    They are digressed and defamed nations of the world AND YOU KNOW IF WE DON’T GIVE BASIC SEX EDUCATION TO OUR CHILDREN AND IF PARENTS ARE NOT SO LINEAMENT THAT THEIR CHILDREN CAN TALK ABOUT SEX WITH THEM THEN WILL ASK SOMEONE ELSE AND GET DIGRESSED.

    Sex is the thing that every body loves to do and on body wants to talk about WHY ? we should talk it to a forum and save our children with adverse effects of sex.

    We should let then know and understand the devastating effects of unsafe sex.

    The best post in the history of ProPakistan.pk
    yeah I know I am a bit exaggerating… but just to let you know the importance.

  • “Fox News” is Like our “Geo News” which Hypes up everything!!!

    by the way “Geo News” is a replica of “Fox News” for Pakistan by Pakistani.

    • Many people don’t know that Fox News trained the whole GEO News team prior to their launch and continue to come to Pakistan to provide additional training for their news anchors and on-air personalities. There is a rumor in the market that Geo is partly owned by Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News, but I have not been able to find any solid evidence of this. It would explain why they are so much like Fox in every way though.

  • PLEASE CHANGE THE SUBJECT, THE WORD IS PAKISTAN SO KINDLY DONT WRITE PAKISTAN OR PORNISTAN PAK MEANS CLEANS AND HOLY SO DONT ATTACHED IT WITH THAT.

    • Yes, Admin change the heading ASAP. This is not a right way to give such name about Pakistan.

  • One word, “FAKE” or bloody fake I must say,

    The internet nation of Pakistan is just a few millions which much much much lesser than that of India, Russia, China, US, Canada.

    What they did is picking some wacky keywords that aren’t searched much from around the World, and upon basis of those keywords they’re calling us “No. 1 Nation in Sexy Web Searches”

    And dear editor, please show some respect to our country name and remove the word p***istan. Let them say that word but we shouldn’t.

  • I think Mr. Hamad Dar is misleading the story as i personally checked it on Google Inside and the data is supporting the point of Fox News. Pakistan is on higher rank in search of sex contents.

    • I think you mis-read it. Let me just paste some of it from what i wrote above.

      “I don’t deny the fact that Pakistan ranks 1st on these keywords. I also don’t deny the fact that porn is popular in Pakistan. However, I deny that Pakistan is “No. 1 Nation in Sexy Web Searches” as claimed by Fox News.”

      and later in report I have only tried to prove how the mentioned keywords contribute in very low volume to porn searches. Give it a read before you point fingers.

  • یھ لوگ اس پروپیگنڈا کے زریعے پاکستان کی امیج خراب کرنا چاہتے ھیں.اور حکومت کو چاہیے کے ایسی ویب سائٹس کو بلاک کرے.

  • I think this is Indian Propaganda against Pakistan we all know that in the Team who advises Barrack Obama there are Indians who guide American Parliment against Pakistan. I think this news is published by an Indian and no one else.

  • If India does not refrain from doing Propaganda against Pakistan then they will have it from us.

  • No doubt porn is popular in Pakistan, but fox news being a typical anti to Pakistan particularly, it’s another lame try of picking on Pakistan.

  • i would agree that most of pakistani ue internet for porn. internet cafe are mostly used for porn. although i dont agree that pakistan is no. 1 . still govt. should take action against porn sites

  • i am off to the police station to launch an FIR against FOX news owner, and i’ll ask the police to contact Interpol to arrest them ASAP, i’ll also follow up on the FIR against Facebook owners

    hahahahahahaha

  • Mr. Adnan Swati, i think you are hoping against hope, there are two things wrong with your request. In a country mauled by internal conflicts and terrorism, its not such a bad thing to have porn, as it is, there is very little entertainment left in the country, cricket gone, movies banned, outings yeah if you want to have a bomb proof armoured vehicles.. oh wait they all with the goverment, tourism ?? well yes if you want to see the new ruins of Swat amongst the beauty that use to be.
    Plus you could actually use porn to fight terrorism, get those brain washed idiots to look at those sites im sure they will stop dreaming of the virgins rewards in their headless afterlife.
    As far as the searches go, heres a theory .. government must be involved in pornographic searches themselves, heck they probably account for half those searches generating from pakistan and we all know where the horse sex searches are being made from, didnt our beloved president do jail term for his love of horses ? ..

  • Great insight Hamad! At last someone stepped up and showed us the true picture. At least Hamad made an effort to clarify the propaganda.

    I salute you Hamad!

  • This is our learning lesson, we must focus on this issue, and trying to follow the Islamic thoughts and try to pay attention with our childrens activities on internet.
    Fox news is not the authentic and news looks Fake.

  • The idiot who wrote this news report is trying to bad name a whole country without doing proper research.

    “Remember, Google Trends shows users’ propensity to search for a certain topic on Google on a relative basis. For example, just because a particular region isn’t on the Top Regions list for the term “haircut” doesn’t necessarily mean that people there have decided to stage a mass rebellion against society’s conventions.It could be that people in that region might not use Google to find a barber, use a different term when doing their searches, or simply search for so many other topics unrelated to haircuts, that searches for “haircut” comprise a small portion of the search volume from that region as compared to other regions.” google trends help

    Pakistanis don’t know specialized terms of pornographic material. If you would like to see results for bestiality ,child pornography you won’t find most hits from pakistan but from canada & US. The google trends result are highly misleading…..I don’t mean to say that people in pakistan don’t access pornographic material at all but the data shows a twisted picture for reasons that are not apparent.

  • The funny thing is that every Maulana in the country came out for Banning of Facebook becase of “Draw Muhammad Day” but no one seems to be interested in banning porn :D

    • And 90% of Maulana Hazraat even don’t know what the Facebook actually is :-)

  • Sorry to rain on your hate parade but having worked in the ISP industry for over 8 years at the highest technical levels and still being associated with it, I can tell you that more than 60% of our internet traffic IS porn! This has been the case since the days of dialup when static images were popular. The broadband explosion brought the low quality videos followed by the hi-res vids that are so popular today. I am talking about the actual traffic and not particular searches on Google or other search engine.

    Accept it that we are a sex deprived nation going maniac. :(

  • What the Hell is this pornistan Author should say sorry to Pakistan this is not the way….. how could he say any thing like this to Pakistan And You Guys are silent this post is not good…
    No one Can make fun of my country I feel pretty shame on you all guys who read that and didn’t even complain about it….

    If the people of Pakistan saw such hex that doesn’t mean author make these type of fun its fully propaganda Its my request to the administrator change the title of this post or remove it…..

  • As Pakistani’s, it’s our greatest misfortune that we don’t accept what we do… Instead of getting ashamed, we are just trying to hide our real face.

    Shame on all of us :-(

    Produce the courage to accept, even our wrong deeds.

  • you think its ok to change name of country like in title

    Pakistan or Pornistan?

    I can’t stop people of our nation but atleast can feel shame of what author wrote…..

    • Hello Fahad,

      I wrote the article and I guess you jumped off to comments without reading a bit of the article. The article says exactly what you said that “Pornistan” is NOT the word to be used for Pakistan which “Fox News” did.

      I accept criticism, however, it’s better if it’s factual.

  • How dare they call our Pak Pakistan in that word. But Pakistan Government should order local isp’s to block the website and make another website to report about pornography to safe children from porn websites.

  • And did Fox news report who searches the term ‘child porn’ most in the world… Boohoo Fox News, the hell with you if we are a nations of proud pervs

  • Sexy movies are being watched all over the world no one can deny but in ranking to hold Pakistan Ist is not correct, its a propaganda to defame Pakistan. I would like to invite the Fox News to collect data of video makers and the artists who play with horse, porn, dog and donkey and publish the report on line. I am sure the European countries will be big tits.

  • Question:

    Which country has the biggest porn industry in the world ?

    Its USA with $13 billion Dollars.

    Which country has the biggest porn industry in Europe ?

    Germany.

    Haven’t they tried all sort of sex ? Who pays on their porn sites 99% originating from USA, Russia, China, and Europe ? Ofcourse Americans, Europeans.

    They don’t need to give searches on google, they simple use credit cards and watch all sort of sex including child porns, animal etc.

    Fox news owned by jews never spare Pakistan, and they know how serious we take them. The day we stop taking them serious, they might show seriousness towards Pakistan. These sick people can’t digest many good social values of Pakistan still exsiting.

    On the other hand, why PTA is more keen to block VoIP but had done nothing at all to block porn website ? Everything is so damn open becuase it isn’t against politicians, army ?

    • Okay they don’t deny anything you say about them or call it a propoganda or a conspiracy against their country.

    • Dear one, I am respecting your views here. But try to be more realistic. Fox News article is based on facts so not just try to give excuses here and accept that we are at the top on searching those keywords.

      Whereas you saying “They don’t need to give searches on google, they simple use credit cards …. “. Well, isn’t it funny ??

      I don’t know any credit card in the world, offering porn to its customer. Or it’s simply means that the people who keep credit cards don’t need to search out for pornographic websites?

      Isn’t it really funny ?

  • I don’t defend Pakistanis, but it’s also true that these days Western media (even our own media) is into a lot of conspiracies about Pakistan. First they made every one (including our own people) that we are the center of terrorism. Now as every one believes this, they are coming up with new propagandas to further defame our country, and our religion.

    • Yeah it would be hard to believe that Pakistan is a centre of terrorism, even after that is all we see everyday. Which planet do you live?

  • Sorry for jumping in late – I was too busy watching porn movies and looking for my favourite chicken :-)

    Everyone knows that porn is the biggest driver of internet usage in the world, not only here in Pakistan – but everywhere. Now, the question is can we handle it as a nation and admit that this type of content exists in the ‘big bad world’ and accept it and move on with our lives. it is an individual’s choice to use the resources such as the internet for religious study, jihadist proliferation, research – or good old fashion porn, but don’t censor my life, I have limited time on this earth and I want to enjoy it the way I see fit.

    Baaa, Baaa, – ‘yes dear, I am coming’ :-)

  • I think the report is true. Just becoz its from fox doesn’t make it a propoganda. Because anything that supports your argument is true, but whatever goes against it becomes a propoganda.

  • This reports Misleading… i have searched for Fox report and it turnout to be a valid report so far.

  • This is nothing but another reaction to the facebook ban and other related things. They don’t want to say anything good about Pakistan so they keep coming up with their new pathetic ideas to defame it. But who cares! i mean in a country where people (a majority of them) don’t have jobs, food and security what difference would these so called facts based reports make in their lives?

  • Okay,
    lets take the Fox news article as a propaganda against us but at least do accept that it’s actually based on facts.

    Instead of getting emotional, why don’t you all try to collect the real facts about search trends against the keywords mentioned in Fox News article.

    http://www.google.com/trends

    Above is the Google Trends site, try it and find yourself that where Pakistan is right now to search the keywords like Sex, Child Sex and the list goes on..

    SHAME ON US :-(

  • well it is true that the report frm fox is misleading. but the point here is hypocrisy.

    if pak is gonna ban facebook fr some content y is it not banning porn. this is not an article fr the ppl of pakistan but rather the lawmakers.

    pak’s shld stop calling everything a conspiracy and shld change the way things r done. we have to learn or lessons. 63 yrs after freedom and this is where we are now :( (forget porn , generally).

  • That is good so we are all in agreement. Here is the situation:

    Sex and porn is normal for normal people and in most countries it is OK. However, the child sex, animal sex and rapes are the crime against humanity and the worst of the worse. That is where Pakistan comes on top and takes the prize. Not in the normal healthy form of sex but the most perverted and criminal form of child molestation, rapes and cruelty to animals.

    Most people fail to understand that homosexuality is not a crime in many countries but if the kids are involved it is a major crime and severely punished.
    That is exactly the difference between the civilized and countries like Pakistan.

    I know some would term it a conspiracy against Pakistan and defend such acts. But these crimes are the lowest of the lows and there is no
    denying about that even by this author.

    The facts and numbers do not lie and cannot be denied. Unless we accetp our faults we cannot change for the better.

    • We must have to accept the facts & figures. We cann’t deny it. We can deny the name used by Fox author, the name ‘Pornistan’ which is totaly a conspiracy to defame our country.

      Instead of getting emotional we must have to take it seriously. As a muslim we must avoid such type of things.

      There is no doubt about the propaganda of Westren media against Pakistan but we can defeat them by our actions.

      Regards,
      QRAR

    • Okay, so we have the highest ratio of searching the word rape on Google, this is why we should be called a sick nation and other countries will be called civilized.

      Dude, in which country do the most number of actual rapes happen? Which country has the highest ratio of child molestation? Which country has the highest ratio of people (mostly women) being involved in animal sex? You know the answer, nothing more is needed to be said I guess.

      Regards,

      Hassan Abbas, Pakistan.

  • Assalamualaikum, all

    Regardless of the statistics, we know that we are involved in this. As a nation, it is time to stop being hypocrites, accept our mistakes, and do tauba. Until we sincerely repent to Allah, we will continue to receive punishment both in this world and the Hereafter.

    I wholeheartedly agree that one positive step would be for the government to ban pornographic sites. Why don’t we lobby for this?
