Backpacking since Christmas Day, 1989. Hitchhiking since mid 2010.

I've just returned home after hitchhiking around Asia for the last 9.5 months.

comment Are Pakistani nationals restricted to entering India through four airports only?
It was I who made the "customs and immigration" tag for the very reason that the two concepts are blurred and confused even by native English speakers especially given that they are or were previously often the same desk or the entire phrase is used on signage. Anyway in most countries the customs and immigration officers follow the rules set out by the government.

comment At what kind of eateries can you have a lamb roast in Australia?
You wouldn't typically go to a restaurant for this type of food. But there are some kinds of restaurants that specialize in "Australian food". They will often be enormous places in the suburbs. Another kind of restaurant that would serve this kind of food is called a "carvery" or sometimes a "grill" though the latter tends to be more a kind of Australianized American style food. As mentioned elsewhere, the most common place to buy a roast dinner would be at a pub or, depending which part of the country you're in, a club (RSL, rugby, surf lifesaving, etc).

Clubs are not really an Australian institution. They're definitely a New South Wales institution and I think it's probably the same in Queensland. But not so at all in Victoria and I don't know either way for the other states and territories.

Your question doesn't ask anything about visas or about customs and immigration but does ask if India has rules about which airports Pakistanis can arrive at. You're not asking whether customs agents will accept you but whether India regulates which airports you can use.
