    The US Government should arrange a visit of Mr. Safdar Hussain so that he should go to US and meet US President Mr. Barack Obama.

    Mr. Obama will be glad to meet a person who may be resembling with him and this will improve ties between the two countries.

    I wonder at the two extrmes of Pakistani society. Looking at these people dancing, distributing sweets and having a nice time, one finds it almost impossible to believe that these same Pakistanis burned down property on the Ishq-E-Rasul day…

    @Mohammad Ali Siddiqui:
    It’s too late for this Multani guy because Prez Obama already has three look-alikes who are virtually carbon copies and can even be mistaken as the President by the latter’s aides. On the other hand, this Multani is absolutely not an Obama copy if you look at him from close range, although he does have very vague similarities if viewed from afar.

    Are you implying that the people in the pictures above were involved in that? Do you have any proof to that? Or do you mean if a few hundred illiterate goons does something that’s equal to 180 million people? Would help if one is able to think before posting gibberish comments.

    Please ask readers to send pix of look-alikes of as many public figures as possible….including those of the last century…..It will make a very interesting feature.

    He doesn’t exactly look like Obama because the guy from Multan is his elder brother. Safdar and Obama story has been well documented in the Indian movie Amr Akbar and Anthony.

    @Khan:
    Bro! @IceSoul I bet meant fellow Pakistanis when he said “same people” that’s how it’s spoken in papers & politics. When we hate a whole foreign nation for crimes done by few that’s exactly what we are doing, generalizing and stereotyping. But he said “both extremes” that is self explainatory that he meant people belonging to extremes but belong same nation/people.

    Yes agree, doesn’t exactly look like Obama and he should thank God for it. What if next time someone in US commits blesphamy and Pakistanis mad with rage (as usual) find this Obama look alike … well I have heard they even burn and lynch people on the roads in the present day Pakistan.Recommend
