It has been a bit over a week since I came home. It is time to do some conclusions. A major problem was that I didn’t feel so free there for the security reasons, moving around and the Islamization policy since the 1970s.
I believe that religions are good for people since they fulfill fundamental human needs but religions can’t restrict other people’s life and rigths.
And it is not very normal that I had to censor my facebook comment because the secret service migth find out about it.
Here come the pros and cons:
+unbelievable hospital people
+people were really nice though there is some extra niceness for foreigners
+ work was interesting, I was writing proposals for new projects which fit for me
+ I got an insigth to the minority situation in Pakistan
+ I learned quite a lot of politics in that area especially after reading two quite good books
+I learned about development and the NGO sector
+through the NGO I met many local people
+I saw Islam “in practice”
-the athmosphere didn’t feel free
-little entertainment outside including sports
-pretty much staying inside
-I wanted to have closer interactions with Muslims
-I was too lazy to write more serious stuff to this blog
