  1. The Peace Tourism

    Given that Government of Pakistan is concentrating on cultural exchanges, peace cricket tours with India, festivals at shiv mandir in katas raj and kali mandir in hinglaj balouchistan, in addition to opening up of religious tourism for NRIs from europe and America. It’s high time that all indians are allowed free access to Pakistani destinations

    Government has decided to celebrate 2007 as visit Pakistan year.Regardless of the debate that whether all stakeholders especially overseas Pakistanis and tour operators were taken into confidence and whether there is any discussion with western governments namely USA,UK and Europeans to ease the negative travel advisories regarding Pakistan.
    The worsing law and order in tribal belt of Pushtoon & Baloch Areas and “made in Taliban tag” on world media, has already scared off most of the westerns

    but initiative presents a rare opportunity in becoming a beacon of light for peace
    Malaysia celebrating its 50th independence anniversary has already started a vigorous TV campaign for a visit Malaysia year 2007,

    Indian tourism is already running a highly successful “incredible India” campaign

    In Pakistan government initiatives, we have learned through previous experiences, are most of the time riddled with red tape of bureaucracy ,half hearted ,half baked and ill conceived,

    but nevertheless it’s a start, keeping our fingers crossed that it will be a success.

    Tourism today is one of the biggest industries in the world; it brings employment, opportunities and equality to otherwise less developed areas.

    Pakistan is the best kept secret of the Tourism Industry. Its Northern areas, its festivals, its cultural and religious tourism to name a few.INDUS VALLEY & Ghandhara Buddhist CivilisationBasant festival, Performing Arts festival, Truck Art, Chicken Tikka massala cuisine, Buddhist ,Hindu & Sikh Places of pilgrimage , the K-2 and Raka poshi of Pakistan

    “Tourism for Peace” Discussion is about how ordinary Pakistanis and indians , and forums like SAFMA, PIPFPDplay a part in defining what is meant by “ Peace Tourism” and brand Pakistan in terms of culture and Tourism Potential of peace initiative between people of India and Pakistan

    Given that Government of Pakistan is concentrating on cultural exchanges, peace cricket tours with India, festivals at shiv mandir in katas raj and kali mandir in hinglaj balouchistan, in addition to opening up of religious tourism for NRI (Non Resident Indians) from europe and America. It’s high time that all indians are allowed free access to Pakistani destinations
    Indians are not scared of terrorism threats that world media projects about pakistan, they know better, majority of Pakistan is a tranquil destination and peaceful and friendly people nostalgic and reminiscent about communal harmony in pre partition days
    Entry visas at arrival for the business, family and Package tourist will the first right step in normalizing the hiccups in peace process and increasing people to people contacts
    Millions of Indians will be eager to cross the Wagha Border for a day trip to savour the culinary delights of LAHOREI FOOD STREET and BASANT & other Punjabi FESTIVALS,
    this nostalgia and the bond of friendship was shown in Indian cricket tour of Pakistan when thousands of passionate indian cricket fans turned pakistan tour into a festive mood and places like peshawar (birth place of Dalip Kumar and Raj Kapoor and family home of Shah rukh Khan) welcomed Indians with open hearts

    Everyone has their own ideas on Pakistani identity ,secular ,religious, urban rural , working ,middle class and elite. PAKISTAN IS A MULTI CULTURAL, MULTI LINGUAL, MULTI RELIGIOUS SOCIETYour “unity in diversity” and “peace for Friendship” are the right slogan for “visit Pakistan 2007” discussion.We would like like to explore avenues of participation and promotion by readers Contributors for Brand Pakistan and how Pakistan tourism can become a permanent spot on indian tourism map.most of the Indians still have family historical links to festivals, cities ,food culture music and Art of Pakistan ,hopefully we can make it a year long exercise updated at regular intervals.

    Institutions like the national flag carrier (PIA) already flying to delhi and mumbai can become a calling card for Pakistani tourism and hospitality by increasing cities in flies to in india, private airlines from india and pakistan can share the frequencies in domestic network, the shipping industry in both countries has already joined hands in promoting trade and tourism.

    State run Pakistan TV world and global Channels, through their reach in India & Middle East can be the ambassador for brand Pakistan, major Pakistani satellite channels like Indus group, ARY, Geo and Jang Group, AAJ TV are already collabrating with indian film and media industry to bridge the gaps between two enstranged siblings.

    The Aim is to bring back the Pakistani and Indians together; foreigners will definitely follow in their footsteps
