What it Looks Like To Live in Pakistan

What it Looks Like To Live in Pakistan art.

Pakistan is an Islamic state with diverse range of people who believes on different religions; despite that Pakistan had successfully portrayed a strong image. As a Pakistani national, living in Pakistan is great because it has all the four weathers, and comprises desert, mountains, and a lot of plain land to feed its nationals and guest.

In past the state had faced many wars with neighbouring country; however, it had successfully resolved the conflicts and won the title of peace-loving country. As most of the population of Pakistan is young, so that it has a great edge to utilize this power to bring prosperity to the citizens.

Pakistan is comparatively cheap country to live; although, it is one of the countries with least tax collection. Corruption, nepotism, and human rights abuse is common, but Pakistan is on its way to eliminate them from the root. It is hoped that it will be in the list of developed countries till 2050.

Economy of Pakistan

In Pakistan like other countries, a lot of wealth circulating gin the hands of few; therefore, the poor must do a hard work to meet both ends. It is the country where approximately two percent people are taxpayers. Most of the tax burden is thrown at the middle- and lower-class families.

Businessmen are reluctant to register their assets and do through proper channel. It is probably they are afraid of asset declaration; and are not willing to pay taxes. However, gradually the government is forming the laws and policies to bring it under tax net.

For instance, in past people usually us trafficked mobile phones, however, now one needs to register it with PTA DIRBS to use it. PTA has allowed it only for 60 days for visitors and Pakistan nationals.

As people are getting prosper they are buying Galaxy Phones, Apple Watches and and western products.

A great number of people are reluctant to invest in stock market, bonds, or even to open a bank account. Because they think to keep money in bank account or invest in stock market is forbidden in Islamic principles. As children are being learning and getting higher education so the trend is changing rapidly. More and more people are opening bank accounts and investing in variety of sectors.

People are looking for the way to buy Apple iCloud from Pakistan using Debit or Credit card.

As most of the economy of Pakistan is undocumented so most of the merchants do not accept visa, master, or any other card except a few International Brands. If you are vising Pakistan try to carry some money in addition to debit or credit card.

Health Sector of Pakistan

Health sector of Pakistan do not have a great image as most of the politicians, businessmen and civil servants visit abroad for their health check-ups. The government is offering Insaaf health cards to the poor nationals of Pakistan. However, there is a long way to cover each region of Pakistan.

There are some desi doctors who are doing more damage to the health than betterment. So try to avoid Neem-Hakeem and ask for qualification before you visit any doctor in Pakistan.

Learn about Educated Mafia and Punjab Institute of Cardiology Tragedy in which a few men were killed and infrastructure was damaged.

Employment in Pakistan

Pakistan has a different point of view in terms of jobs and recruitment. Most of the students are expected to join government sector; however, only a few can join it and some pave the way with nepotism and the rest of the candidates are out of luck. As in January 2021, the paper of Tehsildar was leaked. It is one of the only cases which is reported; and later on discovered that the paper of Inspector Anti-corruption and many other were sold on hefty prices.

There is always quested to join government sector, it is probably civil services pave the way for prosperity, VIP protocol and high status.

Private sector of Pakistan is expanding at exponential rate as a great number of people are creating their own business and Special Economic Zones are being created under the CPEC project. Gwadar, Faisalabad, and Sialkot are to become hub of factories, plants, and industrial hubs.

Nowadays, more and more people are joining platforms to earn money online in Pakistan.

Education Sector of Pakistan

Education sector is booming in Pakistan as schools, colleges and universities are increasing and educating the students with modern education. However, due to shortage of budget there is a great compromise on the quality of education.

The Government should allocate more budget to the Education sector.
The Government should allocate more budget to the Education sector.

As most of the Pakistan nationals do not pay tax therefore the state has little money to spend on education and it is one of the biggest hurdles in the prosperity of Pakistan.

Islamophobia in the Air of Pakistan

According to the Bureau of Statistics 98% of the population follow Islam as a religion. Therefore, every national has to face racial remarks, criticism and questionable treatment on airport and in the western society.

For instance, as a freelance worker I have for less opportunities in the international market like Upwork, Fiverr, and Freelancers.

Terrorist do not have a religion, race, or colour. Therefore, Muslims should not be treated like that. In Netherland, a man opened fire in one of the mosques, like someone hijacked American flights so my question is should be blame religion? No, not at all. I believe that there were some problems, misunderstanding and conflicts. It could have been resolved out in a peaceful channel like negotiations, dialogues, and discussion.

Mountains are one of the main attraction of Tourism in Pakistan.

Due to some misunderstanding, there were some unfavourable activities occurred in Karachi, Quetta, and ex-FATA. However, Pakistan Army has successfully made peace in the region through Operation Zarb-e-Azb. As Afghan Peace dialogues are proceeding it is hoped that South-Asia will be the hub of prosperity.

Corruption, Nepotism, & Extra Judicial Killing

According to Imran Khan Pakistan struck in Debt-Trap due to corruption. However, in Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf it is still under the same banner due to corruption. It was hoped that Pakistan will be more prosperous under PTI government, but it is yet to be seen. Around 38% debt has increased during last two years. Again, it can be hoped the state will find a way out through hefty tax collection.

Undoubtedly there are some problems in Pakistan, but the state is on its way to eliminate from their roots. However, it is not an easy task to make Pakistan corruption free, eliminate nepotism and end to feudalism.

Environmental Challenges for Pakistan

Pakistan is among the list of top ten countries which must face environmental crisis till the end of the 21st century. Climate is Changing, sea level is rising, and water table is decreasing, and Pakistan has to face the biggest hit due to geographical location.

Pakistan has beautiful Terrain of Himalaya.

On one end this geostrategic location is paving the way for prosperity on the other hand this is going to create crisis, food insecurity and hunger in the state in near future.

Infrastructure Made in Mughal Era.

As a Pakistani national it is our sole responsibility to preserve our environment for the generations to come. It can be done through saving water, using public transport, consuming less meat, and most importantly making awareness in your society.

Dark Side of Bureaucracy of Pakistan

Bureaucracy in Pakistan is bad comparatively other countries. In this system civil servants are told to do what is favourable for some rather than what is right. From top to bottom reforms are needed in Pakistan Administrative Services (PAS), Police Services of Pakistan (PSP) and Judiciary.

For instance, on January 13, 2020 Superintendent of Police (SP) Abrar Hussain Nekokara killed himself in his office on Monday. Unfortunately, the suicide was committed with the pistol given to him to create peace in the society. However, it turned out completely different.

Another famous case of Rizwan Gondal, the poor police officer was frequently transferred due to not giving Hafta to the seniors; by standing against the so-called VIP culture and being loyal to his duty. And later he was made On Special Duty (OSD) because he failed to create any political affiliation to keep his job.


To sum up, Pakistan is a grate country, undoubtedly, there are come problems however, the has adopted a great approach to resolve them with reforms, amendments, and accountability. As compare to past now it is a safe state to travel. Among all other things the state provide security to foreign nationals in Baluchistan. The people of Pakistan are welcoming; they always have respect for the people who come far furlong area to see their home.

It is an honour for me to be a Pakistan, to enjoy all whether and to live on the bed of Indus Valley Civilization.

Dabangg 3 Is Not Releasing in Pakistan

Dabangg 3

Dabangg 3 is the latest action movie by the king of Bollywood Salman Khan. However, it is not releasing in Pakistan. The Pakistani Government banned many things which also created severe problems for both India and Pakistan.

Dabangg 3 is the latest movie of Salman Khan Films and Arbaaz Khan Films. The leading roles in the movie are played by Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, and Arbaaz Khan. And it is the sequel of Dabangg 1 and Dabangg 2.

The Pakistani Entertainment Industry thinks that it is a good sign that it will have a positive impact on the Pakistani industry. The people won’t have any other option of entertainment other than Pakistani media. Therefore, they are very happy with this move of the government.

There is a major chunk of the Pakistani lie remarks that the Indian Media is promoting and showing vulgarity across the world. Therefore, the movies and TV serials should be prohibited since the beginning.

Dabangg 3 is a ban in Pakistan. There are many conflicts and disputes that exist between the two countries. Therefore, it also affects the entertainment industry.

Unfortunately, Dabangg 3 is not released by the Pakistani government. The Government of Pakistan also banned the import of medicine from India which leads to severe problems for the nation. Moreover, there was a ban on Indian Flights to cross the Pakistani territory.

By setting all the differences and affiliations aside one can say that, the entertainment also lay positive impacts among the nations which lead to harmony among the nations.

HBL Is The Worst Bank In Pakistan

A person is counting money manually.

Habib Bank Limited (HBL) is one of the oldest banks in Pakistan. However, it is the bank with the worst customer support, inadequate security, and faulty systems. HBL has a monopoly on having many branches around the state. Therefore, people do not have any other option except this so-called – HBL.

Once in a while, people share their stories of being victims of a security breach in HBL’s poor systems. Around two years ago, 10 million rupees were stolen through HBL ATM’s poor security.

People often complain about the poor performance of the system overall. A friend of mine told me, he was also the victim of this poor service. Naseer, my friend, made a transaction through ATM Withdrawl. He didn’t get money but, the bank says the transaction is successful. Further, it takes two and a half months to resolve the matter.

A few days ago, I made a transaction through online banking. Immediately, the funds were debited from my account, albeit, it didn’t reach on the destination. I am making an effort to approach customer services, but all in vain. They do not attend the call, simply, terminate the call after 10 minutes. Or says, we’ve logged a complaint. So, keep waiting.

HBL Helpline Calls
A recent call history shows the HBL helpline.

Why Habib Bank Limited is The Worst?

None of the banks is good or bad by the time of its creation. It is the features or services it provides, the human resource; the way of working, or the command chain. All of these factors help us to decide either it is a good bank or worst.

Poor Customer Support

HBL is well-known for its poor customer support. One has to wait for at least 20 minutes to talk to the representative of the bank. Another telecom giant PTCL has also a similar reputation in Pakistan, albeit their customer service is great.

Faulty Systems

We have reached 2020, but still, HBL is using old techniques to do banking. Come on HBL, make some changes in your system, and speed it up. HBL is at the top of the list of monetary losses due to faulty systems.

Lack of Flexibility

HBL lacks adaptability, which is crucial to provide good services to the customers. The bank needs to improve the system to make it easy for users. One rightly said, everybody wants to earn a profit, but no one is ready to invest.

Bureaucratic Style of Working

Banking in Pakistan never flourished as it should be. In Pakistan, the National Bank of Pakistan and Habib Bank Limited are known for their bureaucratic style of working. They follow the most complex style of command of the chain. The seniors usually enjoy high incentives, and juniors have a high bulk of work to do daily with minimal salary. There is a dire need to change the command of the chain in these banks.

To encapsulate, it is an era of the digital world. However, HBL is the most conservative bank. The ones who do not adopt the changes suffer the fate like Yahoo. In business terminology, a customer is the king of the market. When the customers are facing problems, then the decline for the company begins.


The Division of Indian Sub-Continent

A weapon being used in War.

The division of the Indian Sub-continent is one the difficult process for most of South Asia. Thousands of people lost their lives in this so-called Partition. However, in this partition around 20 million people from long term oppression by getting a separate homeland. Initially, it was Pakistan only but now Bangladesh.

Overall, the partition was in the favour of Muslims, so that they can follow the preaching of Islam and Muhammad (PBUH) without any fear. The ones who chose to live in India are still suffering from Indian Oppression, in spite of the fact.

It is estimated that around a million people lost their lives in this mass migration. And many more suffered financial losses in this mass migration. Many people left their assets and belongings. The governments promised to make financial compensations. Many projects have launched both sides of the border for the allotment of land. But nothing can compensate the memory attached to the places, the religion or the social circles. As a wise man said, everything can be replaced except human beings.

Wars Fought Between India and Pakistan

India-Pakistan Wars Timeline
This is the timeline of the wars fought between India and Pakistan.

The boundary dispute between India and Pakistan is a bone of contention among them. They fought three major wars and dozens of clash. The skirmish began immediately after two months of separation in 1947. One of the wars proved fatal for Pakistan and divided into two chunks. Which results in a new state called Bangladesh.

India claims that it is a secular state, however, it is not the case under the Modi Prime Minister. Muslims are suffering in many ways. The Hindu nationalist government decided Babri Masjid in the favour of Hindus. India was a secular state however, not anymore. Modi points out, Hindustan is for Hindus.

The division between India and Pakistan was made in the haste which is making life miserable for the thousands of millions. It is not the only case of the Indian sub-continent wherever the British made so-called colonies they are still suffering after seven decades such as Hong Kong.


The Living Standards of Pakistan

The flood water is poured into the town.

In the 2018 elections, the PTI established a government in the centre and in a few provinces on the name of change. There was a manifesto of the Party was to create Naya Pakistan. However, after being in the centre around a year and a half, it doesn’t change a lot.

A few days ago, I was in the market to buy something vegetables and fruits, however, everything is so expensive. The vegetables are twice or thrice as compare to previous prices. Is this being the change the manifesto of the party promised?

Now, the question arises that how the poor can feed their children. The ones who earn only a small amount of money. How a person can educate their children. There are many problems in the country but making dozens of taxes on poor people and shutting the public and private industry sectors. Was it the PTI promised?

According to the census of Pakistan, above sixty per cent of Pakistan are below the 30-year-old. There is a lot of potential for the growth, and, uplift of the economy. Most of the youth are just free and looking for an opportunity that can pave the pay for a sustainable life.

The Imran Khan, the Prime Minister, the cricketer, made many promises; he is trying from the bottom of the heart to get the country out of the debt trap, albeit it isn’t the way as Khan is thinking.

Above all, the standards of living cannot be improved without creating opportunities for the common people. There are many industries in the public and private sector are rotting due to hurdles made by the Government. Further, everybody should contribute his share to uplift the country. A wise man said, none of the nations succeeds with only making plans; but, by implementing plans.

The Air Quality of Lahore is Deteriorating Day by Day

Industrial Pollution

AIR is one of the crucial elements for the survival of human beings in the world. Undoubtedly, the Industrial Revolution brought many evolvements; however, it brought certain consequences among them is air pollution.

Lahore, the city of more than 11 million people is suffering from inner pollution and outer air pollutants. The inner are those which are being emitted by their industry. However, the outer pollutants are those which travels through air and mostly come from India. The air quality of the City is worsening day by day.

It is estimated that the Air Quality Index (AQI) of Lahore is 484 and is increasing. AQI is a standard to measure Air and lesser it is the better it will be; therefore, 300 is the threshold. The geographical location of Pakistan is bringing good and bad things. It is helping her to connect north and south but she is facing some negative impacts; which are becoming more visible day by day. Pakistan is one of the countries which is adversely affecting Climate Change.

There is no single cause to this emerging problem which is rising at a high pace. The traffic pollution emits a major chunk in the pollution. Moreover, industrial and agriculture also emit 10 to 20 per cent each. Advancement in both of the industries is necessary to prevent further worsening the situation.

To encapsulate, it is not an individual or some specific genera issue. Therefore, we have to make collective efforts to address this issue. The effort won’t be for a specific group of people; it is for the survival of human beings.

Pakistan is Failing to Utilize the Potential of a Massive Youth

A lady is typing on Mac book.

Pakistan – a country with 60 per cent of the youth population, which is less than thirty-year-old, and most of them are unemployed. In the 2000s, during the period of the Musharraf as a President, took the initiative to educate more and more people. He launched many technical institutes, but, now all in vain. There are many reasons behind all of this phenomenon a significant purpose is an economic shift. The change of government laid a massive effect on society. There are millions of students enrolled in training institutes.

The TEVTA (Technical Education & Vocational Training Authority) is working in Pakistan, which trains the massive influx of youth, since its creation. However, a skilled one is useless if he is not needed in the industry. It is estimated that during the last decade, around 30 million students enrolled in TEVTA affiliated colleges. They offer programs of many duration; one, three, and six months; one or 3-year diploma with all that why poverty and unemployment are still prevalent in every part of the country.

The primary focus of the Musharraf regime was on development; in his era, millions of dollars of projects were initiated. There was a shortage of skilled labour. After the completion of a short course, the candidate immediately got a job. Therefore, It helped millions of people and gave the source of income to them. However, everything changed suddenly; so, a shift occurred in government.

The fall in demand for skilled labour began as PPP took charge of the state. However, he didn’t halt all of the projects.

In 2013, as Nawaz Sharif become Prime Minister of Pakistan; he initiated many development projects under provincial and federal governments. Most prominently, Metro Bus project which allowed thousands of people. Another example is the Orange Line Train project.

As Imran Khan takes control of the country, ninety per cent of the budget of development projects is stopped. Most of the government policies are aligned with to get rid of the debt trap. The significant chunk of the revenue pf Pakistan is reserved for payment of debts, which are pending for three decades. Therefore, many projects are halted due to lack of budget; it also increases unemployment.

To encapsulate, the policies of the new Prime Minister also profoundly affected other industries. Such as the automobile industry; it is estimated that they are facing labour surpluses. They are trimming their labour force day by day. There is a fear among the general public, either they are skilled or not, there is no opportunity here.

Kashmir: The Most Militarized Zone in the World

A soldier is walking on field with armor.

Everyone on this planet has right to live openly; no one should be tortured or killed on the basis on religion, creed or ethnicity. Kashmir, the Haven is in danger under the rule Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP). The people of Kashmir are being tortured mentally as well as physically since the creation of Pakistan. After the creation of Pakistan, the region divided into two parts, Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) and Azad Jammu and Kashmir. In fact, the state should be given to Pakistan, because it is Muslim majority state. In 1947, more than 95 per cent of the people were Muslims; only 5 per cent belongs to other religions. But the ruler was Sikh, the ruler voted to be part of India.

People are fighting with swords.
People are fighting with swords.

Afterwards, Indian forces started to militarize this Valley and the killing of protesters, torture and brutality begins. In recent years the Indian Prime Minster Narendra Modi revoke the article 370 and dismiss the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. Before that, Modi send massively armed army in this region to tackle the protesters who speak for their freedom. The Indian Army started raid on villages at night and torture the people youth who ask for freedom or found in other activist movement.

The opposition parties speak for Human Rights violation; a delegation led by Rahul Ghandi moved to visit the valley of Kashmir but, they were not allowed to move outside the Srinagar Airport. On the other hand, the Muslim Community hub Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates (UAE) gave the Narendra Modi highest Civil Award for this genocide. How Kashmiri can expect any help from these sorts of Muslim communities.

Pakistan has started this issue in United Nations, the discussion started after 50 years. Pakistan is very hopeful; with the help of UN and HR commission the people of Kashmir will get freedom.

English the Alien Language in Punjab

English Language

Around a decade ago, the Chief Minster of Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif changed the medium of teaching from Urdu to English. By conducting the survey in 22 districts of Punjab; it is proved that the decision was not beneficial for little souls as well as for the teachers. The surveys proved that the primary class students neither can write English nor Urdu. So, the government has decided to switch back to Urdu in the coming year, March 2020.

The question is, switching back to Urdu, will it be effective? Is medium of teaching (English) hurdle in effective education? Is Urdu being the ‘mother tongue’ of the entire population? If No, how will it affect it positively. When we look at the statistics most of the population live in rural areas; which mostly speak Punjabi, Saraiki or other regional languages. To improve the standard of Education, there are other ways, rather than switching medium of teaching every next year. The quality of education can be improved with other ways, some of them are as follows:

  • by changing the syllabus or the content which is being taught.
  • by training the instructors, so they can communicate and deliver more effectively.
  • by providing students opportunities to participate in co-curricular activities.
  • by giving students opportunity to apply those learned skills in practical way.
  • by brining Information Technology in use and utilizing the maximum potential of digital resources.

If government wants to prove that all the decisions taken by previous governments are wrong, then there are other ways to do that. Not playing with the future of the students would be better option here.
