As I was growing up as a child, I had seen so many different shapes and sizes of the Pakistan map that I was always puzzled about the boundaries of this great nation. Some maps had certain areas of Kashmir given to India and in some maps Pakistan was the rightful owner of the northern areas.
This image never left me. The sad part is that many of the government organizations and private sectors have the conflicted map of Pakistan allowing India to take full charge of their territory. Unfortunately, India never had a sporadic and convoluted image about its domain. All their maps are really clear. They own Kashmir.
It is really a sad state of affairs to know and realize that the Pakistani community has done nothing regarding the overall infrastructural image of the great nation. We have allowed maps to be circulated to the world that gives a wrong image of Pakistan. Imagine a distorted image of our own faces in the market. This kind of sabotage leaves a great nation crippled and scared. People start losing faith in their own ideologies and children grow up believing that their own identity can be scrutinized.
I stand up against the images that are on the walls of the UN buildings and other walls that allow Kashmir to belong to India. This territory belongs to Pakistan. Attached is the real picture of our great nation. These are the borders in which we will play, dance, love and eventually die.
