Articles about Pakistan in foreign publications call the country a lot of things. There was the time that Newsweek called Pakistan‘the most dangerous nation in the world.’ There are a bunch of other cliches, some true, some unfair, that have been used to label Pakistan. So I wasn’t really shocked when I saw the cover of Open Magazine [a new publication in India]:
So curious, as to who these 90% of Pakistanis are, I decided to open the preview. To realize that number of people surveyed are a grand total of 606. From Karachi and Lahore. I kid you not.
And this is where my problem with the magazine’s survey and cover lies. The country has a MASSIVE population that cannot be represented by 606 people in 2 cities. There are MANY other cities apart from Karachi and Lahore which should have been included in the survey. But then, its so much easier to sell magazines when you have a cover like that on a newsstand.
