  • Looking at the population size, there are immense business opportunities.
    Look at all the clothes these 207 Million people will need,food, transportation, healthcare, deaths/funerals, the list goes on.
    Guess, people should know, Pakistan is a force to reckon with.

    • A mass market of illiterate poverty isn’t much of a force. But I’m sure the government will find a way to extract WHT from every starving family in the country.

      • Yes man.
        We need business minded people in our country, who can explore all opportunities in right directions.

      • It’s how most Pakistanis think. They are proud of the large population of the country. The mullahs also encourage it. They want more soldiers for Allah.

        • Where are mullahs in Justice, Education, health care, Army, where? Islamic Pakistan is governed by a foreigner Educated not locals! Think a little before you write!

    • Nature has a way of fixing overly large populations. It’s very ruthless. People will fight amongst themselves for a greater share of the ever shrinking pie. It’s already happening and will only accelerate in future.

        • Hanumaan Ji listen! I am a son of human, my forefathers were human. I am a special creation and I am proud of that.

          • No they are not. But hanumaan ji there is nothing wrong in marriage between first cousins.

              • Living with girlfriend is normal practice but marrying your cousin is not? Is this the teaching of your Gaumatah worshipping religion?

                • This is how it goes in the civilised world….while you keep your women in Burkhas

                  I have no religious conscience however i feel worshipping a Gaumata is still better than worshipping a rapist paygaambar

                  You’re frustruated cos you dont get to enjoy such rights and freedom….marrying and reprofucing with your own siblings make you spastic…thatswhy Muslims have ZERO nobel prizes in science (just one though) and ZERO modern day inventions

                  Btw why did you upvote yourself?

                  • We don’t need your “Nobel prizes” and cousins are not your siblings. Better build toilets in houses of your far away villages. Then come back and speak.

                    • Our every home even in villages got toilets.

                      What are you doing on propakistani then? Get back to your slum.

                      This eid i am gonna have gaumatah kabab, nihari, biryani, koftey and more.

                    • Only karachi hanuman monkey ji.

                      You can hump your gaumatah and raise slogan “gay hind”

    • We don’t know the city population results yet. These are provisional results. Final results will only be announced next year.
