Pakistan is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse countries
What you should know about Pakistan
One of the major religions in Pakistan is Islam, which is followed by Muslims. The holiday that is celebrated is Eid. Eid is celebrated twice a year.
Pakistan is a religious country and the people celebrate the same holidays and follows the same culture and customs.
However, you are free to your own religion in Pakistan.
The First Amendment to the Constitution of Pakistan came to effect on May 4th, 1974.
The Prime Minister of Pakistan is Imran Khan. He was elected August 17, 2018. The term lasts five years. Prime minister is the head of government.
Unlike popular myth, Pakistan does not hold to right to enter your home. In fact, Cairo Declaration on Human Rights In Islam (signed August 1990). Article 18 of the CDHRI affirms that: "a) Everyone shall have the right to live in security for himself, his religion, his dependents, his honor and his property.
(b) Everyone shall have the right to privacy in the conduct of his private affairs, in his home, among his family, with regard to his property and his relationships. It is not permitted to spy on him, to place him under surveillance or to besmirch his good name. The State shall protect him from arbitrary interference.
) A private residence is inviolable in all cases. It will not be entered without permission from its inhabitants or in any unlawful manner, nor shall it be demolished or confiscated and its dwellers evicted."
You have freedom of speech!
Article 19 A of Constitution of Pakistan: Every citizen shall have the right to freedom of speech and expression, and there shall be freedom of the press
In May, petitioner Amina Malik tried Sharif and former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for "high treason", alleging that Abbasi had leaked classified details from a National Security Committee meeting held after the publication of the interview. Almeida was also included in the list of defendants.
You are free to be a tourist. There are no laws or rules against taking pictures of women, buildings etc.
Despite the hatred towards the country, Pakistan doesn't fire back.
The only reason a journalist can be arrested in Pakistan is if they leak confidential information which is an obvious rule. This rule is common between other countires but the punishment is not as severe in Pakistan like death. Pakistan is considered a third world country but is way more efficient and polite. Pakistan is not a dirty country either. The rules and laws are reasonable and if you have freedom of speech then I consider it a win.
