    No, it's part of Scandanevia. Iceland used to be a part of Pakistan.

    yes I know. I tried to pick photos from a variety of different locations to make it more fair. As I said, skin color really doesn't mean much in terms of similarities/differences. There are plenty of peoples who look similar but cannot be more different, and South Asia is a good example of this. It just annoys me that some posters turn interesting topics of discussion into discussions on physical appearance, usually to prove superiority. So I was just trying to bring those few posters back to reality.

    Good to see you back BTW.

    Yeah I agree. Saying Indians and Pakistanis are different from each other is one thing, but saying Pakistanis are totally different to Indians is silly. We're neighbours (without a major land barrier between us), so there will inevitably be some similarity.

    And we're both still brown, so many of us looking similar is to be expected.

    No horrible information

    Sindh is the only land that routinely was separated from India


    Sindhis were never Indian ancestry

    Sindhis were always R1a and U5 in their gene make up

    Iranic is a language not a genetic race

    African Americans speak English does that make them Anglo Saxon?

    Sindhis were never Indian people

    The only race in the region that historically had their own land mass was Sindhis

    Words like Punjab and Balochistan just arrived into existence

    Ethnicity can be determined by race, religion, language, culture, or nationality.
    So, a person can be ethno-linguistically Punjabi/Panjabi by speaking the Punjabi/Panjabi language.

    One can be ethno-geographically Punjabi/Panjabi by being a resident of the Punjab province.

    One can also be ethno-culturally Punjabi/Panjabi by following or adhering to Punjabi/Panjabi culture.

    One can not be ethno-racially Punjabi/Panjabi as Punjab does not signify a race.

    But Pakistan also borders Iran and Afghanistan. They too are our neighbours. So do we also share similarities with them too?

    You are correct. Pakistani people have similarities with Afghanistan, Iran, India, etc.

    I will give you a suggestion. One can usually find out one's racial origin by family names, language, culture, physical features, and there is also DNA testing.

    As far as indians are concerned, we ONLY have any sort of similarity with indian Punjabis who make up around 3% of india's population.

    With India, we have been diverging from them for more than 70 years, and probably longer than that.

    Commonalities maybe with Sikhs and Some Indian Muslims.

    We are closest to Afghanistan and our ties to Iran are from the time of IVC and Iranic migration.

    The concept of ethnicity contrasts with that of race.
    Punjabis, just like Pashtuns, are a complex ethno-linguistic group with a unique culture of their own.

    Geographically speaking everything East of Indus River is part of South Asia, while the land West of Indus River is Central Asia. The term Middle East is a relatively new term. Countries like Iran, Northern Iraq, Northern Syria and Eastern Turkey were considered as part of Central Asia. Basically all areas of people of Turko/Iranic backgorund were considered part of Central Asia, including Turkestan (Now called Xinjiang, part of China)

    Absolutely baseless, middle east is the oldest civilized area of this world, the civilization as we know it today (living different than animals, means living in agricultural settlements as compared to animal like nomadic life). Western Iran, Syria, Iraq, Turkey have always been cradel of civilization of middle east. This BS of central asia is anglo-american created hype, it was mostly inhabited in the past by animal like nomadic poor people who were mostly dacoits and bandits.
