A senior Dubai cop praised Indians in a series tweets that also criticized Pakistanis. He said that the Indians are ‘disciplined’ while Pakistanis were rife with ‘disruption, crime and smuggling.
Dhahi Khalfan, Lieutenant General and Head of General Security in Dubai, posted these tweets after Dubai authorities arrested a gang of Pakistanis for smuggling drugs.
Meanwhile the Pakistani press labelled him as somebody who makes controversial statements. Khalfan also posted a picture of the arrested Pakistanis, with a comment below it that said, as translated by UAEviral: “Pakistanis pose a dangerous threat to gulf societies because of the drugs they bring in to our countries. We must impose strict procedures at the entrances [of our countries].”

He then wondered why the Indians are disciplined but Pakistanis are not. “How come Indians are disciplined while disruption, crime, and smuggling are prevalent in the Pakistani community?”, he tweeted.
He went on to say that nobody in Dubai should hire Pakistanis. “I invite our citizens to not employ Pakistanis…It is now a national duty to stop hiring Pakistanis,” tweeted the Dubai official.
He added that Pakistanis were a “danger” to the Gulf region.
“Pakistanis pose a dangerous threat to Gulf societies because of the drugs they bring in to our countries. We must impose strict procedures at the entrances [of our countries],” tweeted Khalfan.
