Well, in my view you could rather add a ReCaptcha and also use the honeypot technique to reduce spam significantly.
I believe the spam mails from India and Pakistan are generated by bots, and using a honeypot, the bots cannot complete the form.
Doing that is more efficient than banning certain countries afaik.
