    He was not born in Pakistan. I disagree.

    He was born in Lyallpur, Punjab Province in Britsih India. There was no Pakistan at that time. I am just being historically and factually correct.

    Yes, I agree. Lyallpur was in undivided India. In Pakistan, the name of the place has been changed. It is now Faisalabad.
