13 Professions and Pakistan's Perceptions About Them

By Umair Mahmood | 20 Jun, 2015

Every profession does its part in creating a vibrant and successful society. Due to how they’re presented in popular culture, Pakistanis have developed certain perceptions about some professions (and not all of them are true).


1. Lawyers

Liars. The majority of Pakistanis believe that all lawyers can do is lie.

2. Doctors

Known to serve the humanity for decades. This is a noble profession and first preference for a rishta.

3. Software Engineers

Somehow, people believe that software engineers are only good for fixing computers and don’t realize how software has been changing the way we live today.

4. Bankers

They make money off people’s problems and by charging high interest rates.

5. Musicians

Maraasi! Hard for them to make it big in Pakistan owing to lack of support from their families and deteriorating condition of the music industry in general.

8. Writers

This isn’t a career. And most Pakistanis think there is no career growth in this field.

People entrusted with changing the destiny of the nation through the power of a pen.
