Decline of Sports in Pakistan, Take the bull by the horns

Decline of Sports in Pakistan

The world’s biggest sporting event, Rio Olympics 2016, ended on a miserable note for Pakistan. It was heart-wrenching to see that not even a single athlete of this nation of nearly 200 million people could qualify for the event, let alone winning any medal. How embarrassing is the fact that all seven athletes from Pakistan, the country which prides itself …

A Nation at a Crossroads

time of transition

From the dawn of independence to the dusk of controversial Islamization, and then to the terrifying dark nights of 2016, which entail nothing but confusion, Pakistan has paid almost no attention to girls’ education.
