Many companies consider Pakistan as a part of Middle East but ironically, Bangladesh or India aren’t considered so.

Pakistan is technically in three regions: the Middle East, the Subcontinent, and Asia.

We learnt it in our History class... and you can't really argue since the person who taught us History was a Ph.D from Columbia University who concentrated on the Middle East/Subcontinent studies ;)

most of the website count pakistan in middle instead of asia
