  • People around the world have a rather merky impression of Pakistan – a country enslaved in mystry. But those who get to visit Pkaistan, normally change their opinion. Yes there are restrictions and age old self proclaimed laws in remote villages, the scene in cities has chanded much. Now women work side by side men and Islamabad Police is one such example where one can find women police officers working as efficiently as men. We are a moderate forward looking society indeed
