5 *Creepy* Questions People Ask Pakistanis Living Abroad

I am exhausted, irritated and annoyed by the most random, creepy and literally stupid questions that people ask me related to Pakistan. So, I have decided to answer them once and for all.

Here goes my most shortest list:

1- Do you have your personal GUN?

dumb

Yes, because we don’t have justice league to save our people! This dumb question was asked to me thousands of times. And NO! we don’t have personal guns, neither are we allowed to carry one, unless with licence ( which is a long process, so we prefer getting robbed over getting a licensed gun!)

2- Did you fight with the society to pursue your career in engineering?

Oh Please

Pakistan is not all old fashioned and against women. Places like Karachi,  Lahore and Islamabad have a lot of females in engineering and it does not even matter to anyone anymore. So chill.  Not everything media say is right. It’s all propaganda.

3- You must be really strong; you handle your society to study abroad?

dumb 3

Yes, I am strong, but no my society is very supportive when it comes to education. They don’t bother anyone for there life choices. So yeah,  it was never even my concern to think about the society’s reaction when moving abroad.  It was just me, my family and my plans!

4- So are you married? Did your parents force you into getting married?

Lol! NO, I am not married. NO, my parents never forced me to get married early. NO, nobody will be “Honored Killed” because of love marriage. Cases do happen, but not every Pakistani is like that. So chill! Nobody will be after you if you have fallen in love with a Pakistani girl/guy!

5- Have you ever met anyone from ISIS?

 

meeting

Seriously? I mean…  SERIOUSLY?  ISIS?
They don’t roam around the roads of Karachi and introduce themselves like ” Hey, nice meeting you. I am from ISIS… You?”

Like seriously????

 

Trust me, the list can go on and on… From, how I must have dodged the ISIS while they were shooting bullets on me to like Malala, to how brutal men of Pakistan must have been while I was growing up. I have heard everything. But to be honest, I never faced any of this and hopefully, Inshaa Allah ( If Allah wills), I never will.

Negativity is everywhere, evil minded criminals are roaming around the world. But STOP generalizing based on few cases. It’s very unfair to hear all these negative comments about Pakistan, it’s very hurting when people gave me sympathy for facing that evil society. NO, Pakistan is full of beautiful and humble people. We care, we love and we spread peace. ❤ ❤ ❤

Peace ❤

The worst but most respected job in the world – Sewer cleaners

(Disclaimer: Do not eat while seeing the images in this post)

You dress up nicely from your heart every morning to go to your job. You check your hair and your shiny shoes. You check for the finest fragrance to match with your look every day. This is a normal routine for most of the working people.  However, there is an occupation where clothes and perfume are not only neglected but they suffer from the most dreadful and smelliest places.23

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sewer cleaning is one of the most dangerous and disgusting occupation especially in third world countries where proper instruments to check poisonous gases, blowers to throw out polluted air, torches, gloves, even proper clothes are not provided. Living in Pakistan for most of my life, I came across these poor daily wage labour, who are willing to go down in the dirtiest sewer in order to remove the domestic and industrial waste.

These sewers contain poisonous and suffocating gases like carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide and methane. The water the climb down into contains a lot of chemicals like bleaches which are used to clean bathroom floors, grease from shops, mercury, the glass component, ammonia and other chemicals.

These people suffer from boils and burns, nose and lungs infections like asthma. This not only risks the labour life but the entire families. The government, especially in third world countries, like Pakistan, India and Bangladesh don’t seem to notice.

Imagine if these workers stop working for just 1 month. The entire place will be flooded with the dirty sewer water. Appreciate and thank these workers, they deserve more! Surely,  they are the most important people in our society.
