We all know a thing or two from Pakistan, but unfortunately, the only source is new agencies who are constantly reporting how dangerous Pakistanis are and how much they hate us! Is it all true thou?!
Thinking that Pakistan is not safe is something like thinking whoever goes to an American school gets shot!
News agencies tactic is to spice up everything and twist them to get more viewers which results in more money for them! But, do you want to fall into their traps though?
Let’s start exploring this underrated country with its recent history!
Recent history of Pakistan
Pakistan is relatively a new country, yet the history of mankind living there goes back to thousands of years ago!
In recent history, this area was under British rule and when it was the time to let them be on their own, Pakistan got split from India based on its people’s religion. In fact, Pakistan is one of the very few countries on earth that’s been built only based on religion!
Bangladesh was also a part of Pakistan called East Pakistan but after a while, they were like, “thanks but no!” And formed a new country for themselves!
People in Pakistan
Pakistan is the world’s second populous Muslim country after Indonesia but it doesn’t mean that they’re all Muslim! On the contrary, there are other religions over there such as Christianity and Hinduism which are freely being practiced!
People in Pakistan love Americans! Many of them have been to the US or dream about going there! If you go there as a western tourist (especially from the US) you’ll be treated almost like a celebrity!
Most street vendors won’t accept money from you because of their hospitality and would even give you more free stuff!
