  3. Olympics is good sports. Pakistan and India is two Team. Two Asian Country are playing in Olympics game is very well.

  4. If you wish to compare Pakistan hockey against Indian Hockey, Indias record before august 1947 must not be included! before 1947 Pakistani players represented India such as the Great Dara. just like Truth needs no defender, and darkness cannot compete against Light. India cannot be compared with PAKISTAN. Pakistan is land of Pure. and Truth. Unlike india which follow tanakiya (chankya) policies. Indus runs through Pakistan so land you call India shouldnt be called india.

  5. pakistan is powerful then india
