Re: Bad idea to go to Pakistan? Safety in Pakistan
So , the major governments are all completely wrong and have misconceptions about Pakistan and you base this on your family who are Pakistani nationals living and working in Lahore.
Several foreigners and their guides were murdered this summer in a peaceful area in the mountains in the North of Pakistan
If a group of professional mountain guides could not protect their clients, then how can a young wedding photographer assure the safety of foreigners
In March 2013 a mob attacked the Christian area of Lahore destroying 2 churches and over 100 houses.
Several places have been bombed recently in Lahore such as a shoe store in Liberty Market a bus stop near FC College as well as shopping centres , mosques and government buildings.
On Sunday September 2013 two suicide bombers blew themselves up as people were leaving the morning service at the oldest church in Peshawar.
Helena you also forgot to mention the polluted smog that regularly engulfs Lahore and is dangerous to those with health problems,
Pakistan may be beautiful and have culture but it is dangerous for foreigners.
