Pakistan, who had beaten Belgium 6-3, were in the receiving end from the start, and Amin Rahim flicked home a penalty corner in the fourth minute for the lead.
But Shakeel Abbasi scored a field goal equaliser in the 50th minute, and the match went into high gear.
Malaysia immediately went on the counter, and a reverse stick shot by Kelvinder Singh was deflected into goal by Azlan Misron for the lead again in the 52nd minute.
But Malaysia could not hold onto the lead for long, as Abdul Khan again equalised for Pakistan in the 57th minute.
Malaysia won a last minute penalty corner, but Amin Rahim’s high flick missed by centimetres and were forced to share points in a highly entertaining encounter.
In an earlier match on Friday, Malaysia held Olympic champions and World No 1 Germany 1-1, with much of the match being played in the Malaysian defense, and midfield.
There was tremendous pressure from the Germany, who fielded nine Beijing Olympic players, but they wasted all eight penalty corners that came their way.
Malaysia waited patiently for counter-attack opportunities, and it won them a precious point.
Germany, who beat Malaysia 3-0 in the Japan Olympic Qualifiers in April, scored off a penalty stroke in the 26th minute.
The stroke was won when a Malaysian player stopped the ball with his foot during a penalty corner.
Moritz Furste tucked in the lead, but Malaysia equalised off an S. Selvaraju field attempt in the 46th minute.
Malaysia played a defensive game, and did not win a single penalty corner in the entire match.
