By Sarmad Amer | 17 Jul, 2016

As a Pashtun you tend to fall victim to many a Pathan jokes and accent mockery. Some may call you dumb, while others may taunt you for your short temper. Despite all of this, everyone knows if they ever mess with a Pashtun, they’re not getting away without a single scratch on their person.

These are some of the most relatable things, only if you’ve grown up as a Pashtun:

 

1. This “suniye jee” of your parents
