Forget taking pride, you didn't even give Biharis the full right to vote until the last decade or so.

When 500,000 Biharis (they say) were killed by Bengali nationalists, how can you say nobody glorifies it? You glorify the Mukti Bahini that carried out those acts of genocide!
Why is it fair game to talk about Punjabi g*nocide but not what Bengalis did? As far as I'm concerned, if you can't be honest about what you guys did, why should you expect any sympathy from Pakistani ultranationalists?

As for Pakistan & Biharis.

I am embarrassed that Pakistan couldn't take them in. They were loyal to us & we let them down badly.

That being said, that doesn't abscond Bangladesh of blame. They were physically their people once Bangladesh was formed & they tested them BADLY.
Let's not pretend that Pakistan can afford any mass migration then or now. We have an overburdened, rapidly growing population & huge refugee crisis already. Even if I feel embarrassed about Biharis, what's next? IOJK mass migration too? Indian Muslims under Modi? Realism needed.
I mean, in reality, this is a non issue. I'm talking emotionally.

Neutrality has neutered Pakistan's relations with former Gulf allies.

Pakistan's now obvious lack of deterrence exposing lack of options!

1979 marked the beginning of the Iranian regime that we see today. What has Pakistan learned?

In 1979, after the Grand Mosque seizure in Pakistan's ally Saudi Arabia, Ayatollah Khomeini, told radio listeners, "It is not beyond guessing that this is the work of criminal American imperialism and international Zionism."

Unsurprisingly, there was a reaction in Pakistan
In Islamabad, Pakistan, on the day following the takeover, the U.S. embassy in that city was overrun by a mob, which burned the embassy to the ground. This soured relations between the Cold War allies the same year the Soviets would begin their invasion of Afghanistan.

Had a stream that I was traveling to "LHA-1" (Lahore 1 Public School) via road at late dusk. @MHKA23 was showing me his predicted grades & those of his sets & explaining why they were low. Loser. The road was ran on & not driven on, where steep, we were sliding down.
There was a section of road sloping down onto LHA Road that I couldn't slide down & some others were overtaking me. I specifically remember a man who was half English & African overtake me, while I was trying to run down the slope.
I was confused as to where the school was as it looked like a lot of different houses. Lots of people going to schools/classes in different houses. Asked an aunty in a car where LHA-1 was & she tried to point & explain which one it was. I was confused so made my way to a house.

I'll tell this to all Muslims in Pakistan:

Stop being obsessed with how other people are living their lives & worrying about forcing your personal scholar's/madhab's version of shari'ah on everyone else.

First start practicing your religion properly in your own home first.
When I post these things, I lose followers. I only care about how this affects Pakistan. Go & worship an empty crisp packet for all I care. Just don't mess up Pakistan with your religious fanaticism. Yes, I'm a practicing Muslim & I don't care about your opinion of my views.
You know what's hilarious?

You can practice religion more freely in some non Muslim countries (e.g UK, Canada) without worrying about getting stabbed for having different interpretations of the Holy Prophet ﷺ & intercession.

Pakistan should've annexed Azad Kashmir & Gilgit-Baltistan long ago.

The people in both begged for equal status in Pak long enough- Pak can influence IOJK psyche through developing AJK/GB.

UN means nothing for Kashmir- A370 is proof of that. Daydreams over please.
Same old mesozoic rhetoric of "we will defeat our own UN argument" & taking joy at LOC encounters where actual jawans/civilians are killed.

Do something BOLD. Forget military, go & develop AJK/GB as provinces or similar. Give them what they've been asking for.
Pakistan's Kashmir policy is Triassic- so devoid of any progress because we stick to the same old boring ideas of "oh, UN" & thinking Turkey & Ertugrul are coming to rescue us. THEY WONT, nor will China gift us IOJK. Nor does Pak or India have capability to really change LOAC.

Pakistanis continue to misread the signs to their loss.

it wouldn't have taken them two years & help from Pak. It also wouldn't have needed to form a committee with Pak for this very purpose, yet they did. See attached

That means Jaish is Pak-based and was keeping Iranian soldiers in Pakistani territory. That goes against Pakistan's past claims refuting this very thing.

Something is seriously amiss in Balochistan.

Why, as some people said, after an "operation in Iran's Sistan & Balochistan", were guards released back to Iran from the Pakistan side of border?
I'm not saying anything about IRGC operations in Pak. I'm saying there are holes in the narrative of Iran & that we need to reply to.
What we know is:

An "operation" reportedly took place in Iran's Sistan & Balochistan (according to Iran state affiliated media)

An exchange of Iranian border guards happened at Iran-Pak border from the PAKISTAN SIDE.
