Most Pakistanis fall into one of 5 ethnic groups:

Punjabi (Indid) ~53%
Pashto (Iranic) 15%
Sindhi (Indid) 14%
Urdu-speaking migrants (Mixed) 8%
Baloch (Iranic) 4%

Considering this, what percentage of Pakistanis could pass as (my estimates):

North Indians (90%)
South Indians (30)
Persians (40)
Tajiks (15)
Kurds (30)
Armenians (10)
Levantines (8)
Cypriots (5)
Sicilians (3)
Moroccan (10)

Woah. You really think 40 percent of Pakistanis pass as Persians? Iranian peoples would be a better term because that includes Pashtuns (kinda) and especially Baluchis. If by Persian you mean Persian speaking, then a ton of Pakis (especially Pashtuns) can walk into Afghanistan. However, ethnic Persians not so much.

30 percent Kurd is also too high.

Have you even seen a Pakistani?

Iranic is not an ethnicity but an ethno-linguistic group. There is no way 40% of Pakistanis pass as Persian, nor 30% as Kurds
