When Strangers Help – 12 Friendly Gestures You’ll Only See In Pakistan

SHARE

Whatever the world might think or say about Pakistan; they definitely know how the people of this beautiful country are always willing to lend a helping hand to their fellow countrymen, that too unconditionally.

It’s something our religion teaches us and we have embraced this beautiful trait with a good heart. These random acts of generosity can be seen on daily basis – on the roads, in your neighborhood, at hospitals or anywhere else for that matter. The best bit about the whole thing is: we never ask each other for help but generally assume we’ll get help from someone or the other. That is how Pakistan works!

Here’s a list of beautiful gestures that random people and strangers show towards each other in Pakistan.
