By Ali Gul | 19 Aug, 2015

Pakistan is diverse, that’s for sure! We come in all different shapes and sizes. Although Pakistanis aren’t exactly known to be the tallest bunch, we do have some individuals who could have easily made up a pro basketball team.


Note: This list is in no particular order because lamba lamba hota hai chahay 7 foot ho ya 8.

Azad is from a village near Dera Ismail Khan. Some sources say that he is married to Zainab Bibi, but this is not true. That would have been an interesting couple, though.
