Middle Indo-Pak: A Survey


Your Name:

Recipient Email:

This is the season of surveys. This is the survey of surveys. A survey that depicts the true state of the mindset of urban middle-class Pakistanis and Indians.


•    73 per cent of middle-class Pakistanis want Honda and Suzuki to begin assembling camels.

240600189_c0a778f4e9 (1)

•    84 per cent of middle-class Pakistanis want Santa Claus to be tried for blasphemy.

•    69 per cent want to see Saudi King’s portrait in the President House and his horse’s picture in the PM House.

•    97 per cent of middle-class Pakistanis think corruption is the main issue, even though 89 per cent of these accepted bribes to take this survey.

•    95 per cent think Musharraf was wrong to attack the Lal Masjid; 90 per cent of these wanted him to raid the Hindus temples instead and run away with the booty.

•    99 per cent of Sunni-Deobandis in Pakistan believe Sunni-Barelvis are heretics; 99 per cent Sunni-Barelvis think the same about Sunni-Deobandis; 97 per cent of the Sunni Deobandis and Barelvis think Shias are heretics; 95 per cent of the Shias think Sunni Deaobandis and Barelvis are heretics, along with Sevener Shias; 99 per cent of Sevener Shias think Sunni Deaobandis and Barelvis and Twelver Shias are heretics; 100 per cent Sunni Deobandis, Berelvis, Twelver and Sevener Shias believe Ahmadis  suck.

•    69 per cent of middle-class Pakistanis say the Saudis are right to wipe out Pakistan’s houbara bustard population because the name of the birds sounds like a very bad English word.

•    77 per cent want sausages to be labelled as obscene food.

•    94 per cent hate America; 70 per cent of these couldn’t get a US visa.


•    87 per cent of middle-class Pakistanis say they trust the media; 82 per cent of these also trust Jerry Springer.

•    77 per cent of middle-class Pakistani men want women to be forced to wear hijabs; 74 per cent of the women agree.

•    70 per cent wanted colas to be banned because they looked like whisky. 60 per cent say water too should be banned because it looks like vodka and gin. They believe Muslims can survive without water by chewing on palm tree leaves as long as they are chewed fresh and their juice is not allowed to ferment.


•    79 per cent believe pop music is un-Islamic; 66 per cent of these were pop musicians themselves.

•    97 per cent believe India and the US pose the greatest threat to Pakistan; 54 per cent of these were later blown up in assorted suicide attacks by Pakistani extremists.

•    102 per cent Middle-class Pakistanis believe Democracy is a deeply flawed system that has destroyed the world. They believe that totalitarian monarchies with entrenched security and bureaucracies are much better and in line with their Arab origins.

•    99 per cent of them do not like to be compared to Indians because they have nothing in common with them except their DNA, culture, cuisine, language, music, and geography.


•    79 per cent of middle-class Indians believe Mahatma Gandhi would have made a great software engineer, or at least a very soft-spoken call-centre-guy.

•    99 per cent wanted to become Bollywood stars; 68 per cent of them joined private TV news channels as the next best alternative.

•    78 per cent of them think Sonia Gandhi was a former Bollywood actress who appeared in ’70s films as Helen.


•    90 per cent believe ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ was the wrong portrayal of India; they believe Karan Johar’s costume dramas and TV soaps are the true reflection of the country; 88 per cent of these were suspected of being high on helium.


•    83 per cent think China poses the greatest threat to India, followed by Pakistan, Afghanistan, and the greener, seaming wickets in England.

•    95 per cent of them believe Tandulkar is God who uses MRF Tyres, drinks Pepsi and loves Parle-G baby biscuits.

•    81 per cent believe the Naxalites are a satanic heavy metal boy-band which sings loud anti-Hindu harmonies, mostly in Bengali.

•    71 per cent think it would have been more appropriate had Arundhati Roy married Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik instead of Sania Mirza.

•    77 per cent of middle-class Indians believe Pakistanis want all of Kashmir because it’s a great filming location.


•    71 per cent of young Indians know very little about Indian political parties such as INC, BJP, CPI, etc. When asked who they’ll vote for in the next elections, 69 per cent said IPL.

•    98 per cent of them speak very fast and speak English in a very weird manner. They believe this helps tone their muscles and prepares them for the next stage in their Karmic life. i.e. ‘Indian Idol.’

Dilawar Ahmad Apr 18, 2013 06:31am
Haha. Excellent. NFP's typical straight-faced satire. I'm sure many readers took it as a real survay, even though it is captures the mindset of Indian and Pakistani middle-classes very accurately.
Shoaib Apr 18, 2013 06:32am
Article is the true reflection of pseudo-elite mindset. Having no connect with general public and with brazen expolitation of poor, they still dont feels shame in hurling hatred against middle class. simply pathetic.. .

Alagu Vignesh Mohan Apr 18, 2013 06:49am
You should remove that one about Indians voting for IPL. For all you know, that could be absolutely true
Chanchal Roy Apr 18, 2013 06:52am
Brilliant work NFP!!..would like to add one to the list "In an election featuring Sachin Tendular, Amitabh Bachchan and any present day politician.. Sachin would win 49%, Amitabh 48% and "politician" would loose his Indian speak
Nafisa A Apr 18, 2013 06:54am
woooooooooooow...thoroughly enjoyable....just 1 more addition:
Sanghita Apr 18, 2013 07:00am
Photo of Nutan... too good. dig on Indian's obsession regarding Bollywood and cricket .. LOL.. Keep on writing about India.. good start, as we miss this type of satire in Indian media :)
Pravin Apr 18, 2013 07:02am
?71 per cent think it would have been more appropriate had Arundhati Roy married Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik instead of Sania Mirza.? NFP, that's where your surveying team made the number!! Actually, the number is 99.999999%. That includes Arundhati and her husband. The only disagreeing person is Sania.
Dixit Apr 18, 2013 07:08am
What a line NFP......."99 per cent of them do not like to be compared to Indians because they have nothing in common with them except their DNA, culture, cuisine, language, music, and geography" .... too good.
Noorie Zaman Khan Apr 18, 2013 07:19am
Left is Right Apr 18, 2013 07:42am made 99% of Indian and Pakistanis agree on something
Silvester Apr 18, 2013 07:57am
"79 per cent of middle-class Indians believe Mahatma Gandhi would have made a great software engineer, or at least a very soft-spoken call-centre-guy." In another ten years this could be true
K G Surendran Apr 18, 2013 08:01am
Hilarious! You could have added that 90 % of Indians and Pakistanis would like friendly relations between the two countries but it is the opinion of the balance 10 % that matters!
Rahul Apr 18, 2013 08:06am
A best write up after NFP !!
HWG Apr 18, 2013 08:29am
Please be realistic Mr.Surendran. NFP is more realistic that what you are. He has no false hopes.
Ahmed M. Apr 18, 2013 08:34am
'94 per cent hate America; 70 per cent of these couldn?t get a US visa.' lol :)

I like that grasss eating pic, reminds me of Mr. Bhutto's famous speech.
Thingamee Apr 18, 2013 09:48am
NFP funny comment about Indian English-speak. But I heard you interviewed on some PBS show in the US. You sound just like the Indians you made fun off.
SUNIL Apr 18, 2013 10:01am
S. A. M. Apr 18, 2013 10:28am
I agree with Surendran. there is a strong will in Pakistan to be friends with India
raju Apr 18, 2013 10:36am
NFP your pinch that tasted sweet.
imtiaz Apr 18, 2013 10:47am
True that as usual NFP the great.
Anas Tanveer Apr 18, 2013 10:54am
Height of Sarcasm, yet every line is factual. NFP, can not agree more. It's in the soil , i guess :D
SP Apr 18, 2013 11:10am
You seem to be in the 10% that matters
AA Apr 18, 2013 11:16am
Lol.. we really don't
sanjay mittal Apr 18, 2013 11:18am
NFP you leave me speechless every few weeks! What can I say except Salute! Salam! Pranam! Absolute absolute list of lists! I will take a printout and place it below the glass on my table!! To laugh... every time I need to pay my taxes.... or get a smile whenever a politician fails us!
abdul quddous Apr 18, 2013 11:35am
realistic to some extent.NFP made a good survey of surveys.thumbs up.

absolutely true surendran!
naveen Apr 18, 2013 11:39am
just awsome
Nony Apr 18, 2013 11:55am
if we average out all these percentages, we get something like 99% of urban middle class youth in both countries suck.
Zeeshan Shamsi Apr 18, 2013 12:15pm
100% of of the people coming up with their own Survey bits are neither funny, not interesting...
observer Apr 18, 2013 12:24pm
I don't hate India. But I am strongly allergic to Bollywood as well as IPL (and T20 cricket in general).
anon, India Apr 18, 2013 12:35pm
Yes may be it is in the soil/character. 80% of the people in the subcontinent are decent till it suits them. Otherwise they are hypocrites. They need mirrors like NFP. Thanks NFP, please keep doing what you do best.
Imran Ullah Apr 18, 2013 12:38pm
Brilliant depiction of the utterly confused mindset that exists in the masses in both countries. I dont know whether to laugh or cry at the 'enlighted and moderated' Pakistani middle class. The picture in your blog showing Pakistanis burning the US flag sums it up quite nicely.
anon, India Apr 18, 2013 12:40pm
Sometimes I think in the whole of subcontinent, people have become very manipulative. Naye zamane mein sab log badal gaye, dost bhi , dushman bhi, anjane tak badal gaye.. At one point in history, this place was the spiritual centre of the world, ab to matlabi logon ki duniya lagti hai yahan..
Mohammad Shiraz Makhdumi Apr 18, 2013 12:42pm
Kya baat hy SIr Ji... Survey laajwaab hy, hanste hanste pate me dard. :)

Anjaan Apr 18, 2013 01:50pm
the whole survey thing is a product of the author's fertile mind .... !
Harish Apr 18, 2013 02:17pm
very nice and hilarious. But Nadeem has missed out on the wish to move to USA craziness for work and living among Indian middle class , including me. :-). So many youngsters in India have a passport ready, but no voter ID card.
Tariq Apr 18, 2013 02:19pm
100% comical satire. La jawab NFP!

ummm...I dont hate India ...but am pissed of with IPL..
gotti Apr 18, 2013 02:49pm
Amazing This has to be the best piece Mr. Paracha has written and also goes to show that he is not working on someone's agenda as he is so often accused. He will criticize anyone but provided that it is in his will. No one can be forced or dictated to write or express their views under pressure and especially not a writer because then it is not art, given that it is not being "inspired" and instead it is being "imposed". I hope the nationalistic/religious nut-jobs from the respective countries give this guy a break from their respective bigoted labels of heresy and agency payrolls. He's a very straightforward, simple and traditional guy who lives in Pakistan and has probably only ever visited other countries. He's no different than any of you but is being honest and sharing his observations (most of them, although, bitter, are outstandingly truthful, whether we would like to have the courage to accept it or not). In short, his patriotism or the lack thereof cannot be judged on sharing what is humorous, which is a genre, known to have an element of truth, in order to be effective. I am glad to see him delve into the culture of other countries and it will be not be long when we'll have a local, straight to the core, Pakistani "patriot" like Mr. Paracha achieve journalistic, literary accolades by international news papers and websites by having him featured as a regular there. He deserves this, undoubtedly. This will be a source of pride for Pakistan and those of you who hate him (even from across the border), will be shocked to know that he will be sending in articles from his home in Karachi and not choose "a better life" like millions of Pakistanis living abroad or NRIs who relinquish their Indian passports only to create mentally challenged organizations like the OFBJP, which furthers the incomprehensible agenda of promoting the "true spirit" of Puritanical Hindutva nationalism, living seven seas away, and that, too, after having relinquished the passport of their own "Mahaan" Bharat (given that India doesn't allow two). Whilst the extremists are busy creating puritanical, theocratic and highly militarized states in their respective lands, there are sane and observant people, like the author, wondering and questioning, how they can possibly be taken seriously. All the while, the readers are laughing as their thoughts are put into words, in scenarios (like the survey) they couldn't have possibly done, themselves.
Yahya Apr 18, 2013 03:18pm
Kudos NFP, This is one of the best surveys ever held,"Independently"
IndianReader Apr 18, 2013 03:20pm
You got me ROFL with your astute statistic on "Arundhati Malik" - I will gladly buy the tickets for her to move to Pakistan!
Karachi Wala Apr 18, 2013 03:45pm
Still it is the 1% that weighs way more.
Karachi Wala Apr 18, 2013 04:07pm
Good to see a lot of comments posted from across the border and almost everyone enjoyed NFP's "Middle Indo-Pak: A Survey". Most of the asking him write more on or about India. I wonder what will their response be, if he started dissecting people like Bal Thackeray and Nerendera Modi they way he goes about Mullah and Pakistani right wing middle class. .
Tania A. Ali Apr 18, 2013 05:27pm
Quite the contrary, gotti. I think you are a new NFP reader here. The guy's rather well travelled. He has often written insightful travelogues on these pages about his trips to Europe, the US, Asia and other Muslim countries. The only country he seemed never to have visited in Asia is India.

Sam101 Apr 18, 2013 06:48pm
This is the opinion of Mr. Nadeem F. Paracha and his only. It is far far away from the fact.

Bhai, i've noticed your replies are very lengthy. Can you please keep them short so we can understand what you're trying to say ? I agree with what you're saying but i had to read thrice. Please keep it short or start your blog and i'll read it. Allah hafeez.
SP Apr 18, 2013 09:33pm
Not sure if this is accurate (source: Wikipedia) but after leaving St. Patrick's college and before joining University of Karachi in 1988, Nadeem did visit India.

70% Of Pakistani want change but 90% of them will vote based on race, sect and creed. 95% Of Pakistani want education but only 2% of them ever want to read books. Less than 10% Of Pakistani have more than 10 books in their home but 100% of them have cellphones. Only 5% of Pakistani believe man landed on moon but 97% of them believe Chanda mama is weaving thread on the moon. 88% Of Pakistani believe that science and technology will solve the problem of the country but 97% want to use it for chatting with white girls.
shiva Apr 19, 2013 01:39am
everyone jumps to passing judgments.....lets feel from the we ever need some people to tell some statistics which are pointless and meaningless and would only lead to controversies....The world should be one. There is no point in judging others.
sidda saada banda Apr 19, 2013 02:41am
If one is searching for " FACTS " in this beautiful piece of satire by NFP , they have completely missed the point . I can only feel sorry for them and hats off to NFP . It made me laugh ........
Aslam Apr 19, 2013 03:09am
He didn't claim to speak any better English, jut pointed out a fact.

windcock Apr 19, 2013 03:41am
ROFL! The IPL crack and the the goat cartoon are the best, IMO. Come on, go for it, NFP! Discrimate all equally ;-)
aabdul Apr 19, 2013 04:00am
90% of Pakistanis are anti-US because their US visa is delayed.
Suresh Apr 19, 2013 04:03am
A great fan of your NFP. Please do write about Bal Thackery and Narendra Modi. We can take that with a pinch of salt but more than that it is pretty cool and humourous. Keep on making people laugh - that is what is lacking in India and Pakistan.
SBB Apr 19, 2013 04:05am
You need to laugh my friend.. it's a good medicine.
Suresh Apr 19, 2013 04:11am
Though I like your lengthy reply, for whatever reason you always choose to bring your paranoid hatred towards India and Indians in most of your twisted reply which often portrays your lack of ability to accept the facts that even though India has so many languages, states, they live in relative harmony unlike your country.
Syed Hydar Apr 19, 2013 05:30am
Yet another master piece from our very own NFP, keep them coming! cheers!
Rangacharya Kulkarni Apr 19, 2013 05:51am
Excellent piece NFP! Especially I love Indian part. I am sure 90% Indian readers agree what you say. Another 9% will feel sad that India does not have such a sitirist. Another 1% definitely say 'Nandu Fattu Pass ( NFP) hogaya re" with distinction.
UV Apr 19, 2013 05:52am
NFP has once again very well captured the Idiosyncrasies of Pakistani mindset some of which he has repeated quite so often in his articles, like - juicy grass & atom Bum, Arab ancestry, etc. On indian side, his reference to 'slumdog millionaire / costume drama' and 'arundhati roy' were right on target. Overall, nice funny article.
Dr Sreenath A M Apr 19, 2013 06:03am
It's fun...... The Great Indian(Subcontinent) Drama...... Wish, we could laugh together , grow together......... There will be a time in future when my family could relish the great Pakistani meat dishes, biriyanis .and Pakistanis could have a taste of our exotic South Indian Sweets and delicacies... True , our differences are made up but, our similarities perennial and true.... Kudos.... It's high time we could laugh at on others follies !!!!!
Milind Apr 19, 2013 06:09am
If the dissection/satire is based on reality, it should be fine... If its based on the views dished out by our secularist media, then it would probably be off the mark.
iqbal Apr 19, 2013 07:12am

RagBag Apr 19, 2013 09:51am
We have #Feku (Narendra Modi) and # Pappu (Rahul Gandhi)! They will provide all the humour we need in the next 1 year, along with satire from the listeners!
RagBag Apr 19, 2013 09:59am
NFP: you got to write about our #Feku and #Pappu! It would be great to hear what you think they will do in the future to win the elections in India! Not to mention others who are #me-too-fekus and #me-too-pappus! and get heard all the time in India.

Just Awesome! I had the misfortune of being 'high' when I read this. Its been an hour and I still can't stop laughing. Funny and ACCURATE!
