Edit request on 20 December 2012 -- LARGEST CITY / URBAN AREA[edit]

This has come up before, and IMO, the statements about Karachi being the largest city or 11th largest urban area are simply too controversial to keep in this article. The 21M population stated in the article is from the preliminary census results of 2012. However, all secondary sources that rank cities use older data, mostly extrapolating from the 1998 Pakistan census. If the 21M is correct, Karachi would be amongst the top 5 metro areas in the world, so there's basically an internal contradiction in this article.

I suggest we remove these lines, and perhaps add something like "Karachi is amongst the largest metropolitan areas in the world". I know this is a bit of a "weasel word" solution, but I think its the best solution until the census results become official, and secondary sources like the UN start using the new numbers in their rankings.

In demographic history there is an un realistic personal opinion based 7 million figure for Pashtun population contradicting 1.2 million in census. It is nationalists edits. Lets be Logical, Karachi population in Last census was 9.2 Million . If u assume Pashtun are 7 million and 25% then karachi population in 28 Million which is big big lie and never supported by any source. Thanks 39.47.149.18 (talk) 15:38, 29 October 2014 (UTC)


No it is sourced Markoffensive (talk) 16:43, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

But sources is not reliable because they are written newspaper article of two Pashtoon nationalists not validated by scientific census process. 39.47.149.18 (talk) 18:46, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Same applies in your case, There is no source for 19% Punjabi. it is only 14% as per Census you repeating every now & then. Nationalist label can be pasted on your profile very easily. how can you prove 19%? Esatesa (talk) 17:03, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Sir, 14% standard Punjabi plus 5% Western Punjabi dialects i.e. Saraiki 2.5% Hindko 1.5% and Potwari- Pahari 1% equates to 19% (ALL CENSUS FIGURES). Since census is only scientifically reliable source so how can Pashtun be estimated 25% contradicting 9% as per census. I am neither nationalist nor i will allow nationalism on WP. 39.47.186.180 (talk) 17:19, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
