Categories: South Asia, Pakistan, Economics & Business, Religion, Women & Gender

All Things Pakistan [1] looks at some lines of poetry written on the back of a bus with initial amusement and then with a slight sense of horror. The post and the comments discuss expectations from Pakistani women. “Roughly translated, it says: Girls these days are so proud of their beauty. They don’t know the first kalma, but speak in English.”
