I’m also a scientist. I have Masters of Science. I’ve read the science and research. I can share reports that back up what I’m saying with actual studies

That’s facetious - lockdowns don’t just buy time. They reduce the transmission rate which not only eases pressure on the healthcare system, it reduces the number of people getting ill and reduces fatalities.

A doctor at a government hospital in KP sounds the alarm - says govt needed to have acted two weeks ago - doesn’t want to scare people but wants to make them aware of the situation

Cynthia Ritchie was one person with a rather unique trajectory & personally I wouldn’t consider her a “travel influencer” I don’t think Ritchie’s story reflects western travel influencers. I don’t think it was her social media influence that brought her into the political sphere

It would have been interesting to hear from travel influencers like the girl with the green passport who has lost endorsements to foreigners. Or from people like Asma Chisty of destinations magazine who’s worked for years on promoting travel in Pakistan.

The tone of the piece painted Pakistan as a dark, scary place where journalists and women are oppressed. I’m not denying that aspect is there but what about the optimism, freedom and creativity led by local, apolitical lifestyle influencers eg hemayal, Humna raza et al

Can you talk about Eva Zu Beck and not mention the controversy of her Kiki challenge with the Pakistani flag? She mentions white women having privileges local women don’t but that marginalises a ton of Pakistani women bloggers who have been pushing boundaries & opening doors 2/3

It felt like the piece of an outsider looking in, rather than one that captures the mood or feel of what was actually happening in Pakistan, on the ground or in cyberspace. 1/3

Bring it to Pakistan - Apple told us my son’s laptop couldn’t be fixed after his brother spilt a glass of milk all over the keyboard. We brought it home to Pakistan and someone here fixed it

I found her wider look at travel influencers in Pakistan one dimensional and poorly researched

This is a truly bizarre piece on the whole Cynthia Ritchie thing - equating her personal story with that of “travel influencers” is facetious and the remaining research is lopsided and doesn’t reflect the wider picture regarding influencers at all
