Is this some new PSYOP started by Pakistan and Pakistanis? Trying to claim everything from Sanskrit to the oldest book in the world the Vedas? I mean i understand Pakistan has a bad brand image in the world these days and for sure Pakistanis should strive to improve that image, but it shouldn't be done by trying to steal India's image. Surely Islamic Republic of Pakistan has a lot of positive things to advertise and market itself
Well they've learnt that religion/ideology can't keep a country together, so they've turned to something else.
Trying to portray their "civilization" (Ancient Pakistan ) as something different/distinct from "Bharati Civ" (whatever that is)
However being anti-Hindu is very much a part of their identity, hence the emphasis on "Indus/Aryan" (non hindu ) heritage.
Well whatever makes you feel more confident
However if they show a picture/video of a Mullah with henna dyed neck beard calling for the death of infidels the whole world will instantly relate it to Pakistan. Am not trying to rub it in guys, but thats how things are.
Its too little too late to claim the legacy of erstwhile India. If this would have been done in 60's or even 70's it might have worked, cause information or misinformation as some of you think it as wasn't as wide spread. And as far as sharing the legacy is concerned, its upto Pakistanis to decide if they want them to be seen as Middle-eastern, Afghan, Turkic invaders or the indigenous sons of soil. I and every other Indian i hope would be more than happy to share our legacy
I guess the new Pakistani tagline will be "we ruled you for 5000years" . First Aryans, then Mauryas, then Guptas then Palas then Mughals.
