First Families of Pakistan[edit]

Comment In First Families of Pakistan#Jinnah_family, the first sentence is "Jinnah family is a political family in South Asia and is the founder family of Pakistan", referenced to a Balochistan Times article. However, that article does not use the phrase "founder family".
I searched for other uses of the term "founder family", but seem to be getting hits for "founder's family" rather than "founder family". The latter phrase implies that it was Jinnah's family who founded the country, and I don't think that terminology should be used unless reliably sourced.
Apart from that, the hook takes the form of "... that X is Y?", which is discouraged at Wikipedia:Did_you_know/Reviewing_guide#Review_the_hook.
(I have done none of the other DYK checks, so this is not a full review). --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 06:22, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol delete vote.svg Roughly 2,000 chars of readable prose, with a mile-long list of buleted, unlinked names. However, I'm not here to rewrite it from scratch. The wp:lede is completely unrelated to First Families of Pakistan (which is the subject of this article). There's not a word of introduction to the actual list of families copy-pasted (word for word) from older articles such as Jinnah family (started April 11, 2012 by someone else). This article was created on September 9, 2012 via copy-paste as soon as Roscelese soft deleted (i.e. redirected) the Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Maryam Nawaz Sharif to Maryam Nawaz with the edit summary: "amazing how parallel articles have existed so long! merge...". I feel I don't really have a choice but to reject it. The article isn't new by the rules of DYK. Besides, it is written against the basics of WP:MOS.
