    US Politics: 2016-2020

    I don't agree with your simple conclusions. But your article isn't bad. I read it. Ya, there's no chance of a Republican Senate passing it, or a Republican President signing it. But, it is nice to gather support for the measure. Support for these things takes time. It would be nice to have...

    Bangladesh is now the single biggest country of origin for refugees on boats as new route to Europe

    The title should be corrected. They are not refugees, just immigrants.

    Pakistani Diaspora Thriving in America

    Ah, thank you for pointing that out. I incorrectly assumed that the chart was listing graduates by nationality. But yes, many Americans do indeed go to for-profit medical schools in the Caribbean.

    2017 Census: Population by city Karachi 14.9m, Lahore 11.12m, Faisalabad 3.2m

    I was wondering the same thing yesterday. I'm thinking that they might have shifted the urban population to rural areas of Sindh. I doubt the Sindh government would have deliberately understated the provinces total population. I really don't know for sure though. However, even if they simply...

    2017 Census: Population by city Karachi 14.9m, Lahore 11.12m, Faisalabad 3.2m

    You're ignoring the fact that these migrants have many children and more than double their numbers within a generation, and often quadruple it within two. It's been nearly 20 years since Pakistan's last census. No one is suggesting that "half" of KPK and FATA moved to Karachi. And no one is...

    2017 Census: Population by city Karachi 14.9m, Lahore 11.12m, Faisalabad 3.2m

    You continue to miss the point. Even if illegal immigrants are excluded from the count, that will not impact the numbers for KPK and Balochistan. You're still ignoring this fact. International sources with an "agenda"? Lol. 30 million would impute 200% growth, not 300%.... No one is...

    2017 Census: Population by city Karachi 14.9m, Lahore 11.12m, Faisalabad 3.2m

    You're clearly missing the point here. The vast majority of the population increase in KPK and Balochistan has come from natural growth, not migration from Afghanistan. The total fertility rate is quite high in KPK and Balochistan. In any case, my issue is not with the share of each provinces'...

    2017 Census: Population by city Karachi 14.9m, Lahore 11.12m, Faisalabad 3.2m

    Punjab's share of the population decreased from 55% to 52%, and this is a "loss" to you? Give me a break... The increase of KPK & Balochistan, and the decrease of Punjab's share of the population has to do with economics, not illegal immigrants. No offense, but this part of your post reeks of...

    2017 Census: Population by city Karachi 14.9m, Lahore 11.12m, Faisalabad 3.2m

    Not only have they been migrating, they also tend to have very large families---especially Pashtuns. Karachi has seen far more migration than Lahore. And yet, we're supposed to believe that not only in percentage terms, but even in absolute terms, Lahore has seen a larger population increase...

    2017 Census: Population by city Karachi 14.9m, Lahore 11.12m, Faisalabad 3.2m

    That's because most of the people moving to Karachi have been poor people migrating from KPK and rural Punjab (especially southern Punjab), not interior Sindh. The Pashtun and Punjabi/Seraiki population in Karachi has exploded. Have you visited the city recently? Your reasoning makes no sense...

    2017 Census: Population by city Karachi 14.9m, Lahore 11.12m, Faisalabad 3.2m

    Sir, I'm not referring to the total population figure, which I don't take issue with. I'm talking about the population figure for Karachi. Lahore more than doubled in size, but Karachi only grew by 60%? And Hyderabad grew by only 49%? This is an absolute joke.
