In my opinion, there are few reasons, the first reason is; mostly Pakistani use internet for entertainment purposes such as for watching songs, movies and playing games, also they use it mostly for chatting, Facebook etc to make friends & make conversations with girls. So most of their time is wasted in useless activities.
The weaker English might be another reason for this. In Pakistan, a majority of students belong to middle class or even lower class families; who can’t afford studying in high English medium schools/colleges. The schools/colleges they are studying in; can not make their English stronger, and as per my experience, students don’t hard work to learn English in private institutes. A matriculation/intermediate passed student in Pakistan can’t write an article in English and if we compare India to Pakistan, the metric students can fully speak, read and write English with fluency in India. Therefore, India is ahead than Pakistan in terms of Making Money Online on the internet.
To be noted that there are also many genius guys out there from Pakistan who make a smart income online with their skills such as Muhammad Mustafa Ahmedzai of mybloggertricks.com, Abed Beli of beliscity.com, Rehan Allahwala of rehant.com, Syed Faizal Ali of mybloggerlab.com and Arsalan Hassan of clip-bucket & tune.pk. There are dozens of other amazing guys from Pakistan, which is somehow a great sign for the country’s future.
