The positive image of a country plays a leading role in its socio-economic development. On the other hand, negative portrayal makes a country completely isolated from rest of the world. It is true with Pakistan too.

Anti-storm barriers, 17,500 kilometres (10,800 miles) of dykes and dunes and a spirit of constant innovation to hold back the seas. These are some of the key ingredients which allow the Netherlands to boast that it is the "world's safest delta".
In a darkened gallery of the British Museum, where spotlights catch the intricate swirling decoration of Celtic Iron Age metalwork, visitors are confronted by a face from another world.

His hollowed-out eyes mesmerise.
Contrast moods and inspirations portrayed in various genres of paintings welcome visitors in a group exhibition at Grandeur Gallery, Karachi. Some depicted the rural life while others revealed urban landscapes beautifully.

The Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) plans to become the new strongman of the city, ousting the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM). At the moment it appears that JI might succeed because the MQM is in shambles since many of its workers have been arrested by Rangers on real and trump up charge; there is no daily dose of pep talk from their chief Altaf Hussain whose communication from London is cut; one third of animal skin collection after Eid-ul-Azha were confiscated so it has a serious shortage of funds, and many other headaches.
Since independence, India's low-caste Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Naxalites witnessed differing profiles of secularism adopted by successive governments, but Indian Muslims, especially in the Indian-occupied Kashmir, remained a target all along, although there were periods during which India had Muslim presidents. This 'special' treatment had to do with lasting misgivings rooted in the partition of India in 1947.
