I flew Lufthansa in 1994 on the Karachi-Bahrain route aircraft was an A310-300 and was surprised to note that the German and other white passengers who boarded the flight at Karachi were not seated next to any of the Pakistani passengers onboard, why was it this way? do they also segregate passengers on other Asian routes

That could have been a coincidence that most people were travelling in groups and asked to be seated together. I have flown Lufthansa often between Germany and Asia and have been seated next to a variety of different nationals from Chinese to Korean to Japanese.
Honestly, I don't think that the seating computers are equipped to segregate passengers according to race.

In my experience on LH flights to HKG & SIN, there isn't much segregation.
Actually in hindsight, I'd say that in the forward part of the A340 Y cabin, there weren't any Asian pax on the SIN-FRA flight, but there weren't many Asian pax on the flight overall (despite it being full).
I'll have to conduct a demographic study next time
