Sorry, but they aren't secular. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was the one who declared Ahmedis non-Muslims and turned Pakistan into an Islamic Republic. Plus PPP's complicity and support of feudalism negate any democratic values they claim to have.
I highly doubt it haha
I saw Mahira Khan too and she was acting like was some sort of Queen and a world renowned superstar :rolleyes:
Adeel Hussain, Junaid Khan, and Faisal Qureshi were super nice though
Yes, the dominant culture in any society usually influences your beliefs and views. Again just from my observations, in Pakistan the mother usually has a greater influence on the children mainly due to the reasons stated above.
Basically the situation is just dependent on the person/family.
The men I know married these women for "love" (they already had U.S citizenship and were stable financially).
I get your point. Just from my observation, even if the man was practicing and traditional, the children were still influenced a bit more by their mother.
It could be. Pakistani men tend to marry out more in comparison to Pakistani women, so I used them as an example.
Typically, children are more likely to be influenced by their mother because they are the ones who spend more time with them, raise them, are more hands on, etc.
Interestingly, the kids of the Pakistani men who have married non-Pakistani/non-Muslim women (that I know) are more influenced by the culture/practices of their mother and are more likely to associate with their mothers side. The kids don't practice Islam nor associate with Pakistani culture...
To be fair, a lot of people left around that time and turned out to be normal. But yes, I get what you're saying. It has come to the point where what's being preached by imams and online needs to be strictly monitored
Pakistani's in the US tend to be educated and successful unlike some of the other diaspora (UK) Most of the Pakistanis that I have encountered in the US aren't even that religious or they tend to be moderate. But it is a worrying trend that people being born and raised in places like the US...
