In Khi, you will find every ethnicity of Pakistan, every culture, and every religion, with no single one holding a hegemonic dominance.
If you compare Karachi with Lahore, the fact is that Lahore is subject to Punjabi hegemony. In Khi, Sindhis, Mahajirs, Balochs and Pashtuns, all hold an ample amount of strength in their areas.
