Pakistan is a new travel destination which offers fantastic opportunities for adventurous western young ladies wanting to boost their audience. However, their ascent can be as fast as their fall.

This presentation, « Wake up to Social Media », published in 2008 by Ms Ramla Akhtar, under « NEXT by Ramla », is a very interesting one. Not that it is a technology contribution or the result of breaking through researches. It is a vision of a time close from us. However, it is already a vision from a remote past.

This person has an amazing complex personality.
This article was written in 2006 by a young student, Ms Ramla Akhtar (nowadays calling herself « Rmala Aalam »). It is reproduced under the creative common policy. Credit is given to the author. Akhtar migrated from Karachi to the mountains of northern Pakistan in 2013, where she lives since.

Il y a vingt ans, l’attaque meurtrière du World Trade Center a mis en évidence le recours à un haut niveau de technologie. Cet avertissement a été largement sous-estimé. Le fanatisme et le terrorisme islamistes sont généralement associés au sous-développement, à l’ignorance et à la domination masculine. Cependant, il existe des indices comme quoi l’éducation et le progrès social ne seraient pas suffisants pour nous protéger de cette menace. Voici un exemple de parcours original qui met en évidence un autre aspect de cette guerre hybride.
