      I am reading about the History of Cricket in Asia, and it seems that the came was first idtroduced to the natives by the Parsi community in British India, as they were first to ape the British.

      Moving on, there are apparently 5000 odd Parsis in modern Pakistan, Karachi apparently. Can any one tell me how they are received by the majority Muslim population?

      And who is the Parsi MP in Pakistan?

      Thanks,

      Me
      Oh well. *shrugs*

      Parsis are very active community in Pakistan. They have several temples in different cities including Karachi and Lahore. They mind their business and nobody (so far) have created any trouble for them. Culturally most of the Parsis (personal experience) are very polite and polished. It is nice to have them in Pakistan.

      The Parsi community in Pakistan is one of the most educated communities in Pakistan. They run several good academic schools primarily in Karachi(Mama-Parsi, BVS etc). The community is very peaceful indeed, and has prodecued very noted intellectuals(Cowasjee being one them). As far as I know, they dont have any elected representatives in the Lower or Upper House.

      I met a prominent Parsi. Well rather, I walked past him at my brother's wedding. Ardeshir Cowasjee is a prominent Parsi journalist who one of the leading columnists for Dawn.
      Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

      Parsis usually dont let people convert to their religion. Pakistan actually has a population of 20 000. It is declining though, most of the Pakistani Parsis left after partition. Many of them are converting and marrying out of the community.

      Never met a parsi in Pakistan that I know of, but I do know one who converted to Islam (only by name) in US. Not a very nice person. Lies alot.
