‘In gatherings of Shia Muslims during this month, a horse (often snow-white) called the Zuljinnah will make an appearance, walking with the mourners during the processions. It has no rider, nor will it ever have one. The Zuljinnah (meaning "the two-winged one") is a replica of the horse Imam Hussain rode.’

Sharing this featured article about @everydaypakistan in @qz earlier this year.
Anas Saleem @ianassaleem talks to Maria Thomas of @qz about this project. “I never thought or imagined it will become this popular in India. I was surprised they (Indians) are very much curious to see everyday life in Pakistan where their ancestors spent (their) childhoods.”
In short, it’s a slice of real, diverse life from a country that political tensions have prevented most Indians from seeing—and understanding.
Everyday Pakistan is on a mission to change perspectives using @instagram as a primary platform.

Hidden from plain sight there is another side of Islamabad. A side hiding an ugly truth. Called the “katchi abadi”, these settlements have existed for four decades. Local land mafia, CDA, Supreme Court orders and all such things aside these people are living in pathetic conditions without electricity, any clean water or basic necessities of life. They literally don’t have any roof over their heads. The sad part is that we all know they exist but most of us have done nothing about it. Next time the temperature soars over 40 degrees or approaches zero, do stop and think about them for a second, will you?
