Islam, the world, and Pakistan

December 15, 2016

Proud to be a Muslim – No apologies. No excuses.

The world is divided into two: us and them, the first world and the third world, the black and the white, the rich and the poor, the educated and the illiterate, the privileged and the disadvantaged, the favored and the damned, the aristocrats and the peasants, the natives and the immigrants, on and on it goes…like an infinite loop spiral.

The Perfect Sky is Torn!

I just finished editing content for our 1/2016 edition. While I was working on final copy, this song kept playing at the back of my mind like a sad refrain…I have yet to come up with the title of our cover story. However, I think this is our theme song for this edition. Its’ so sad. The perfect sky is torn…sigh. By Fareeha Qayoom

Stuck in the Twilight Zone!

And yes, I have now great respect for people in the government who manage to get anything done – push the paper all the way through to build roads, schools, hospitals - the works. It takes hundreds of engineers to change a single light bulb in this joint. People who can do all that are my heroes. I salute you. You must be relentless, tireless and have a lot of tolerance for putting up with loads of BS and still plowing through all that nonsense to come on the other side. By Fareeha Qayoom

Role of Financial Institutions in Real Estate

Financial institutions are providing the right platform for the Real Estate sector by accommodating them with required amount of financial support whereby mega-housing projects can be launched and also by extending the limits of potential target customers. All of this has been possible thanks to new banking laws, curtailments in the documentation for the procurement of loans, increase in the number of financial institutions, introduction of foreign banks, incorporation of multinational companies with substantial resources, liberal policies of the State Bank of Pakistan and last but not the least, the changed attitude of the people whereby borrowing for Real Estate is not considered taboo any more.
