Pakistani Life Style


Pakistanis are getting modern as far as their lifestyle is concerned. While the world has become a global village and the internet has made everything accessible, Pakistani people try to copy Indian or Western life style. Being a Muslim state, Pakistanis should be Muslim too in their ways of living. But the situation is quite opposite. Like all other societies in the world, there are three sections in which the whole society is divided.

1 – Upper class

2 – Middle class

3 – Lower class

If we look at the lifestyle of the upper class that is obviously rich class, they are purely western by their look. They follow each and every thing of the west. Whether it is education, dressing, architecture, foods, language, behavior or any other thing is concerned. They try to hide their identity of being Pakistanis and feel proud of being western and modern.

There is another class of people whom we call the middle class. They are the most pitiable people of society. They spend their whole life in a struggle. Struggle to enter in the upper class; struggle to avoid a lower class of society. In Pakistan there is a joint family system which is the most popular system in the east. Shalwar Kameez is the very common dress of people in this class. These people are neither modern nor conservative in their thinking or life style but moderate. They are more hardworking and loyal to their country too. They speak Urdu. But the impact of Indian culture is vivid in this class. They follow some rituals of Indian society.

Lower class: The people belonging to this class live a very hard and tough life. They can’t earn enough to feed themselves. They have hardly any sense of education, religion or moral values. Their first and last objective is to earn their livelihood by any means by hook or crook. They are in the majority. They eat food that is wasted by other people. They wear dress, worn out by others. They speak the local languages of Pakistan. They don’t know Urdu. They don’t know what is happening in the world. The most painful fact is that the government is not doing much to improve their living.
