Question for the fishes from Pak:
How do you perceive China? Considering China and Pak are now closest allies, How does that relation affect you in terms of opportunities for education, jobs, tourism etc?
Also, What is your opinion on China’s policy against Uyghurs? Do you relate with them?
Note: I am from India.

China is not a natural ally of Pakistan - in that it is a strategic alliance but on a cultural level both countries have very little in common.

It is an alliance of convenience against a common foe, which had strengthened because of its longevity and need (China bracing for a fast growing India, Pakistan needing to diversify military dependence beyond US and need for investment post 9/11 pull out of companies from Pakistan's supply chain).

Pakistanis are also acutely aware of their relatively poor bargaining position, with China under Xi willing to take a harsher stand against perceived ill will. Which feeds into the Uyghur situation, people get Pakistan has nothing to gain for itself or the Uyghur's by speaking out. In practice, the issue has been raised in private, and Pakistan has taken the Chinese version at face value.

I personally feel it's high time Pakistan and India resolved our differences. We are natural allies, there is no need to become pawns in the next great game. A sustained focus on minority rights in both places is required.

You ,sir, are very brave 😄

I’m just kidding. It’s a marriage of convenience. They won’t criticize Uyghur situation just like US government will never criticize Israel actions in Palestine or like they will lecture the world on human rights , but cool with Saudis.

And their reliance on China will only get heavier with US getting closer to India. There is nothing good or bad about, just global politics

Honestly they've been nice to us cause it was Pakistan who helped Chiba become the recognised member in UN instead of Taiwan (you can read it up even Pakistanis don't know that )

While many Pakistanis love China even the right wing religious ones, to me all alliances are just there for interest. Currently CPEC corridor is opportunity for China to about it's long routes via south China sea while for Pakistan it's an opportunity to increase its economy.

USA used to hate India for its alliance with Soviets and even tried sending USS Eisenhower in 71 war while Russia hated Pakistan for destroying it's Afghan invasion and engineering it's breakup.

Now USA is making deals with India while Russia is hosting military drills with Pakistan every few months.
