7 Irritating Habits of Pakistanis living in Saudi Arabia

Pakistan, much like their beloved neighbor India, is among the top contributors to the enormous expatriate workforce currently employed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The expatriate workforce in the Kingdom makes up around 2/3 of the total workforce whereas only 1/3 of the total private sector workforce is made up by the local Saudi population. Anybody who has visited the Kingdom or worked in the Kingdom know a Pakistani, whether it be a co-worker or anybody else. Though they can be highly helpful, fun loving and hardworking people, there are a few annoying things which most of the Pakistanis do. Though these habits might be a bit annoying at times, Pakistanis and also their neighbors Indians are some of the hardest-working people I have ever met and it would be beneficial to both the countries if they resolve their issues as soon as possible.

1-The most annoying thing which all Pakistanis do, for me, is when they try to imitate the English accent in a ridiculous way whenever they are talking in English.  I have heard some Pakistanis even speaking their native language Urdu in the English accent.

Syed Zaidi: You look very Jealous by Pakistanis English speaking, quick learning and adopting skills because you belong to some very low IQ level nation.

Eeba: Yes, I have come across MANY Pakistanis who cannot speak English and would still insist on speaking in their broken/ fake accented/ terrible English when I can converse with them in Urdu very easily.

2-Secondly if you ever encounter a Pakistani passenger on your way to the Kingdom, you will notice that as soon as they exit the airport door, and are hit with that sweet Saudi heat wave, they act as if they are completely surprised by the heat in Saudi Arabia, the most famous desert land in the history of Islam. I have been to Pakistan, and in the summers it is really hot, so I don’t know what is all the fuss about.

Syed Zaidi: Most of Pakistanis here in KSA are from KPK or northern areas which are very cold area and Pakistan has ideal weather with four seasons, and be noted that Pakistanis do not complain about whether they just share their feelings because Pakistanis have feelings.

Eeba: This point I’m not so sure about because I usually get hit by a wave of humidity when I reach Pakistan. But then again, I would not put it past certain wannabe Pakistanis from behaving like that.

3-Another separate yet familiar annoying habit is when they look at a lady, they start staring at her. You can feel from their desperate eyes that they want to tear off her Abayas. I know, few people are not like this but most of the men are like this. If a lady sits in a taxi with Pakistani driver, he will continue to look through the back mirror until the end of the world.

Syed Zaidi: Most of the males are involved in same practice as you said, not only Pakistanis because here in KSA woman on street is very unique. If the driver will not see from the back mirror, he would not be able to drive safely. I am not sure but it seems that you don’t have any driving experience.

Eeba: Yes, most Pakistanis (key word here being most and not all) would do EXACTLY that and yes taxis are the worst! Thanks to our lucky stars, you are not a female in KSA or you would have learned the difference between having the driver look in the rearview mirror for safer driving and looking in the rearview mirror to stare at you thinking that if he started just hard enough he just might get past that face cover and see the face underneath. I call our excuse BS. So don’t just go defending because you are a Pakistani.

4-Now, this next one might be the same for their Indian neighbors or probably any other expatriate. Pakistanis love comparing the two countries, for instance, they compare the quality of the roads, to the heights of the buildings and malls. Pretty much everything familiar they see is up for comparison. This comparison is also for those instances when they perhaps see a low scale area or a garbage dump, they will instantly compare the slums or rundown area in their country. They just want to compare and compare.

Eeba: Oh this one… (guilty in the past) but usually I have seen it more on the other side, as in when they go from KSA to Pakistan and all of a sudden they are way too good for the place

5-For all the Pakistani foodies out there, this next one is for you. Pakistanis love food, I have seen it with my very own eyes, if there is somebody up for a plan to get a meal or perhaps a feast, it’s probably a Pakistani. This is great, however soon after moving to the Kingdom, they start complaining about the spicy food. Some of the spiciest and tangy food I have had is Pakistani cuisine so what really is all the fuss about guys. Go have some Masala Chicken Tikka before complaining about the spicy food.

Syed Zaidi: Pakistani food is not much spicy. Have a look at street restaurants, most of the restaurants are Pakistani and almost all nations enjoy Pakistani food so this point also wrong.

Eeba: I have no clue which part of Pakistan you belong to but yes, Pakistan has some seriously spicy dishes. I am a spice lover and so just wrap it up coz I have seen a lot of wannabes go ooh this is so spicy not just here but in Pakistan too simply coz they think if they can’t handle spicy food that meant they had some western genes in them so yeah! Stop trying to defend something that is a fact just because it is about Pakistanis.

6-Most of the Pakistanis (not all) stink like hell.

7-I don’t know why, but you can find them spitting every now and then in front of everyone.

  • Khan

    Look whos barking.. Those who are in love and effection with Israeliz are blaming us. Wake up u retarded mind.

  • Sohail Ahmed

    A real respectful American would never say or write about other people being stinky.

    If you meet real hardworking labor man who works during the day out in sunlight then the smell of his sweat should be appreciated.

  • Asad Hussain

    negative article… not appreciating…

  • Asma Khurram

    I totally disagree with the point staring at the women as all saudi women and other nationalities women are queit comfortable travelling with Pakistani men in taxis if they were like that none of the women would’ve thought of travelling with them.
    Then comes about the wether Pakistani never says about a hot weather of ksa beaide they says its ueit pleasent during evenings in ksa.
    Then comea english accent yes they have pretty good english speaking skills. I bet you havent heard an indian yet 😋😂
    Then about food Pakistani s love eating arabic food kebabs etc so last point is totally pointless.
    And last but not least the comparison point everyone does that whether it is indian srilankan or any other nationality so i dont think its irritating.

    Inshort this article is pathetically meaningless. Waste of time. Or i can say article written by a Pakistani hater.

  • Between the Lines

    I thought the same thing.
    Hard working people sweat.
    Lazy people should appreciate that sweat. And be more respectful toward others.

  • Yasir Ali

    Just rotten mind of admin nothing else.
    As for spicy foods. Pakistani loves spicy food but here in saudi you don’t find spicy foods. And for English it is not our native language and we will speak it same like that so deal with it. 90% of Saudis don’t speak English and most of the arab contries also.
    Just go to your mama if you are scared of Pakistanis

  • OFW in Jeddah

    .Your Analysis is Based upon uneducated Pakistanis mostly from poor backgrounds who do small labor jobs in KSA and other GCC countries. Uneducated people in any part of world will surely have lack of manners. You should have noticed habits of educated pakistanis who are working as engineers, doctors, accounts and IT..

  • Uneducated and Poor people represent the majority of Pakistanis in Saudi Arabia. In fact they are more than 90% of the total Pakistani population in KSA.
