    I knew a Pakistani who owned a 7 eleven. My first guess was that he was South Indian. He was curly-haired and dark skinned.

    Virtually all dalits in Pakistan and North India can pass for South Indian. Among non-dalits, a decent amount can, at least as atypical, especially as South Indian Brahmins (though SI Brahmins are of North Indian origin) but also as a non-Brahmin SI.

    Not the immigrants here in Norway, but IDK what group they're from in Pakistan because according to TA and some videos on Pakis, they're a lot lighter than average Paki. They look more like Afghans or south Iranians

    most Pakis in Norway are from Punjab and they look normal Pakis . You can divide Pakistan into two parts , 75-80% Pakistanis look what you expect them to look(which is function of geography/ethnicity etc) but among 20-25% you see lot of diversity , very dark pan South Asian types and all that.

    I don't think you've ever seen Afghans or Iranians. Regardless, you must have only seen a handful as not that many (only 30000 live in Norway).

    Pakistanis in Norway.






    I used to think this too(diaspora people looking different), but I realised that we notice people who look more like the norm more that those who don't. Confirmation bias.

    A LOT. The average Pakistani is lighter, but this is certainly normal skin tone.

    Only some of them and it's mostly Sindhis who seem to be the closest to look to South Indians in my experience.

    But most of the time, Pakistanis look like North Indians (Punjabis in particular) or to Afghans and Iranians (Pashtuns and Balochis).

    Pakistanis don't look like most Indians (save for Punjabis/Kashmiris), let alone the ones from the south. I've noticed they tend to have smaller eyes, and many of them are actually quite robust. To me they look like a Persianized-South Asian phenotype. I think most people severely underestimate the effects of partition and the MENA influence coming in from the West.

    There is some overlap with states like Punjab/Rajasthan. Tamils from South India though? Those guys would stick out like sore thumbs in cities like Islamabad or Karachi.
