Pakistan, a country full of love, amity, hospitality and allurement, has been deprived of all this in return by the other countries. The war against terrorism has immensely affected Pakistan and Pakistanis around the globe.
Due to this war, an extensive increase in the terrorism in Pakistan has been seen. This was at first a major issue but now has been controlled effectively in most of the areas of Pakistan.
International and local media did not hesitate in doing the propaganda against Pakistan. The image of Pakistan has been shown as a very unsafe country specially for foreigners and of course, women mainly. It is thought as if the women are forced to wear burqas here and if they do not wear it, they are in grave danger. It is also thought that foreigners are hated and targeted by physical and hatred speech attacks, all these thoughts are untrue and rather juvenile.
Due to these misunderstandings and propaganda, tourists are discouraged to visit Pakistan as they think it’s a mere life risking game. Tourism is an asset of a country, it not just helps the economy but the culture is also spread throughout the world and a good international position is achieved. Pakistan is flooded with the ultimate spots for tourism but with no tourists. From Himalayas to the Arabian sea, from deserts to snow caped mountains, from forests to Sky high buildings and luxurious hotels, Pakistan is blessed with all the wonders but unfortunately only Pakistanis enjoy this beauty.
Well now it wouldn’t be fair if we said that no foreigner visits Pakistan as the team of SpeechofPAK interviewed many in the streets of Islamabad, the Federal capital. They were wholeheartedly friendly and excited to talk to us. We found Chinese, Italian, Brazilians and many. We asked them if they feel unsafe in Pakistan? If they are bound here and cannot move around freely? If they suffer any kind of hatred here? We asked women if they have any issues with dressing? The response was rather positive. They all agreed that Pakistan is not how it is showed throughout the globe. They were comfortable living here and were having quite a time. One Brazilian was asked if she is forced to wear a hijab or something she said “Oh definitely I am not wearing one” she laughed, “I wear what I want to, I come here to walk without following any dress code”. A Russian woman also said that she had no restrictions here and she loves living here. She also said those who are not visiting Pakistan due to security issues, are missing a lot.
Pakistan and Pakistanis are the synonym of Love. Spreading love is their hobby but they do demand the same in return. Have a look at it’s beauty and get amused.
