Positive Pakistan: Here is my list!

Recently, I’ve been noticing one thing: People in Pakistan hate the naked truth. They only want to hear “Positive News” even if it is false, misleading and anything but the truth.

Basically, according to this lot, anything negative is untrue because in Pakistan nothing can be wrong. “It’s just propaganda”, they would say.

So when a Pakistani writes an article critical of the state’s policy regarding security issues or foreign policy, he is branded as a “traitor”.

In fact, even if one talks about the tourism industry not ready for a tourist influx, you’ll get bombarded with messages of hate and the nationalists will have no shame in calling you anti-Pakistan or their pet word “Ghaddar”.

Being a cricket fan, I analyzed Babar Azam’s short career as an ODI batsman and wrote a blog about it. So, I found that he has not quite the batsman we think he is and that his batting style has limitations.

Hence, I critiqued his batting approach, citing examples from the matches he has played.

But the people didn’t want to hear about it.

Just today, I googled “Positive news about Pakistan” and this is what came up:
