    @Pinto:
    Read the article. India is only reciprocating what Pak did in February. Trolling is an art that you have mastered my friend.

    Pinto’s comment is a classic example of people who like to be reply (comment) without even listening to (read) the question!

    Its not a where the product is made, but for how much. And the “how much” part is getting hammered by the FOREX devaluation which shows up in higher prices for raw material, hence margin compression. No matter how you look at it, the Pak Rupee has miserably failed the Pak Economy.

    @ AsifAmeer

    Or the economy has failed Pak rupees?
    .
    Japanese currency has been weaker than Pakistani currency. On the other hand, Nepali and Afghani currency is stronger. That doesn’t mean a small economy like Nepal (only $10 Billion GDP) is better than Pakistani economy!
    .
    It what you are capable of making/quality etc. A weak currency can infact support you if you are POTENT enough!

    This is a great step. Many Indians love Pakistani talent in food, clothes, Television, Music.

    Now we will get to see Pakistani products as well.

    Even though our relations will never improve, such small gestures can clear a few misconceptions
