I was an occasionally active member on PDF for over a decade. Got banned a week ago for brushing upon uncomfortable truths, dont think I really violated any rules there
That might be possible here.I like to reach out to Pakistani netizens to try to better understand their psyche and clear some misunderstandings and reach mutual conclusions between us, but now it seems like all such efforts are futile.. I still dont know what SF is all about but I'd like to interact with Pakistani

Good on you, Sir. Carry on.develop my own understanding within our national narrative.
Thank you, Gautam!Welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy your stay.
More than these petty issues, the greatest concern that Pakistanis do not want to acknowledge is how big they are betting on China. The Islamic Republic has completely leveraged itself on the back of communist/atheist China who systematically suppresses Islam, sees its own Muslims as potential terrorists and clearly intends to rewrite the quran to conform to its national ideals and values. More than this, what must concern Pakistan is the wide gap in perception between how Chinese see Pakistan and how Pakistanis see China, it is a relationship not far off from what China shares with N.Korea. The borrowings that Pakistan is undertaking for CPEC hardly justify the benefits as the cost of interests on the borrowings alone exceeds whatever tangible benefits Pakistan is getting today on a dollar basis. Now, China is being very aggressive and confrontational vis a vis established global powers - perhaps to quell domestic uprising, despite the flak from covid19 - and Pakistan has no choice but to ride on its iron brothers back and further isolate itself from the rest of the world.. This is a very big gamble that can cost Pakistan everything, and it is extremely discomforting even for the partially intellectual type excessively patriotic Pakistanis to confront.

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your stay.Hello everyone, I hail from Damoh district of Madhya Pradesh. I'm currently working in the US as a software professional.
