Inside Pakistan

My life in the most dangerous country in the world

Hasnain Kazim moves to Islamabad as a correspondent for Der Spiegel and discovers a land rife with contradictions. What makes Pakistan—a nuclear power full of religious extremists—tick? What holds together a country where the elite stages glitzy thousand-dollar bashes while working class families live in shameful conditions of near-slavery? Kazim explores Pakistan’s extremes; he speaks to clergymen, politicians, arms dealers and even the hangman of Lahore.

The country is beset by major problems; more and more people are living in abject poverty, the unemployment rate is simply staggering, and soon the population will top the two hundred million mark—the majority under thirty, with no foreseeable prospects.

A fascinating report on a society that doesn't seem to know where it’s heading

  • Pakistan offers a vital key to understanding the problems within the Islamic world and the trouble spots in other parts of it.

  • stories that leave us unsettled, bemused yet entertained, contributing to a deeper understanding of Pakistan
