How the world looks at Pakistan is mostly searched question on Google. As to many pieces of research and interviews, many of us do not know much about Pakistan. A few aren’t ever been in Pakistan.
Once they are asked that “what involves their mind first once they hear the word Pakistan?” they reply with multiple answers. Some put it as a quite colorful and delightful country with thoughtful people. although some people call it a radicalized country (which means to support extremism and terrorism). Now that’s where things get difficult for Pakistan. Because people tend to believe in assumptions and false statements. They believe in social media and other sources.
What do others think about Pakistan?
Growing up as a Pakistani, you would have heard the old saying ‘log kya sochte honge?’. once you take this saying into a broader perspective. as broad as going international, ever wondered what foreigners around the world consider Pakistan? Various people assume that it’s a wild/dangerous country and if they’d visit Pakistan they wouldn’t survive.
The people only acknowledge what the media shows them as they haven’t seen the country itself. Well, not all of them have a negative perspective about us, like many of us eagerly want to go to this country as some have friends here, some want to watch the culture and traditions, or some just want to enjoy the savoury traditional dishes. all of them recognize us as peaceful folks that others can enjoy the company of.
