"I want to be in a Pakistan that is free of corruption."

A recent video uploaded on the internet by Gawaahi.com features children from various schools of Karachi, talking about what sort of Pakistan they would like to live in.

Students express a range of ideas they have of a perfect Pakistan, ranging from a place “where there is peace and harmony everywhere,” and a country where one “can be trained as a street dancer” to simply “the best place on earth.” The video was conceived and produced by Naveen Naqvi, and shot and edited by Nofil Naqvi.

Gawaahi.com is a website that archives and showcases on the internet, digital stories of the people of Pakistan. The people behind the site focus on, “…those who have endured and survived abuse. This includes minorities and women, who may be a majority group but retain the status of a minority group in many parts of the world as in Pakistan.”

Video rating: Thumbs up for being cute and honest!

    i want a Pakistan where baloch should be respected.Presently he is like slave.His national identity is on stake due to influx of about two million Afghan jehadies and after Gowader mega project four five million of punjabies and others.Our resources are being exploited against our will &on gun point.Contonements are to crush those who dont agree.Last four months 120 baloch were kidnaped and after some time killed their bodies thrown on streets and jugles confirmed by Amnesty international and other organizations.About 4 to 5 thousand Baloch are missing.their families dont know whether they are alive or not.Recommend
