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.

Clockwise not counterclockwise[edit]

The images at the top are clockwise, not counterclockwise as stated in the caption. This needs to be corrected urgently. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.252.243.68 (talk) 19:56, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
