More so in Sindh and Punjab.

In india alot of them have lost their culture. Since the india/Pakistan partition, you dont see many pashtun practicisers. Jammu and Kashmir has the most amount , i assume.

but Sindh and Punjab, wave migrations of Pashtuns moving in still occur. so.
In Sindh and Punjab, which are part of Pakistan , most of the Pashtuns are still connected to their native villages, definitely speak the Pashto language, and follow Pashtun culture as would any urban Pashtun.
In Karachi there are Pashtuns who moved there two or three generations ago but the current generation still speaks Pashto etc.
Can't speak for the Pashtuns living in India.
My understanding is that, and I may be wrong, that those Pashtuns who move to the West end up losing their language, customs etc especially after a generation or two.
