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?
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?
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?
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?
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?”
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. ❤ ❤ ❤
