I am not hostile towards them. You may think I'm a mongrel because I used the word dickhead, but it's just an expression, if you wanna comment like this at least read it right. And read my responses, because I just stated a while ago that my point about the Expat thing was that they should keep their opinions about Pakistan to themselves. They don't live here, they live abroad. Would you review a book that you haven't read in a long time? Nooooooooope. And if you did, it would have no worth or not as much as the worth of the words of the people actually living here.
2. I have always tried to do whatever was in my capacity to do something for Pakistan. I started a Pakistani Heavy Metal music blog 5 years ago since that was the only thing I could do, called The Iron Markhor (now dead for a few months since because of issues with the people who host us, but InshAllah I'll get it active again quicklike) and would spread Pakistani underground metal music to people abroad, some of my youtube videos about pakistani metal have reached 10,000+ views with most by american people which made me very happy that I did something to promote a different side of Pakistan to people, even if the number is only 10,000.. I know these achievments are not even good enough to be called achievments but I'm not just talking **** or being an arrogant person, I love my country to my dying breath and want to do whatever is in my power and ability to do something, even at a small level, and what always pissed me off was the lack of support given by fellow *****. They would just criticize and then not do anything themselves. In my experience most pakistanis never want to do anything and those that want to do aren't able to and end up going abroad. Lol.. In my opinion even stopping a crime from happening in your neighbourhood is doing something for your country. My ideas may be simple but it's simple little things that count.
3. I do not claim to be a better man or anything! Had you read the article properly and not get so jazbaati over certain small things, you would have read that but I guess Pakistanis have a problem with properly reading.
(I have too, to be honest hahaha. But it's not as bad as a few years ago). Look, I am a normal man living in Pakistan who has only seen Pakistan, who knows not of Bharat and has never stepped in on any foreign soil. I am not better than anyone, and I'm probably worse than most. And I'm not judging anyone, I have no right. All I did, was write down what I feel about what's wrong. There is no need for anyone to get defensive or be offended, because I was not being personal with anyone, except the clergy - and come on, if any one of you is really an Imam you know the problem with most Imams, just like expats know the problem with expats and the children of most expats and how it in turn affects Pakistan. Yeah, Pakistan, the country I was talking about in the article, maybe you thought that I was just spitting verbal venom at everyone because subcontinent people somehow are conditioned to think that any usage of profanity means that there is a "phadda scene". ahaha.
