    As it is said before that these types of experiences will increase if tourism is boosted in the country and most importantly knowing all present circumstances these tourists still try to wander alone in those sensitive areas.

    I agree it's very heavy handed. I think once there are a lot of tourists, they literally won't have the resources to do this, but the vloggers are right, the whole process is over the top, it's unefficient and unprofessional.

    The ridiculous thing is we can have Afghan refugees running around whever they like but tourists have to check in with law enforcement everywhere?

    That will take time ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, People's education ………. People civic sense development ……….. More economic growth ,,, new laws ,,, new authorities ( I suggest "Tourist Council" in all cities with proper building and eqm member include ASP , DSP , Special branch officer , City Nazim , 1122 head of the city , magistrate and local Guides ) ..

    Afghnis have to go back , they are biggest threat to Pakistan and tourism industry of Pakistan … they can do all sort of criminal activities with incoming tourist and can run back to afghnistan……..
    So we need to be on safe side ..

    I love that how positive this guy is and instead of becoming grumpy, rather he did his research and dig history...

    it happened in sindh and who is incharge of sindh? sindh is in the worst possible state with incredible deprived. it's more to do with the state sindh is in.

    No TV channel goes to sindh they only focus on Punjab KP sometimes and sindh and Balochistan are alien to them.

    I saw just one or rather half video from him before in which he was buying a rickshaw ... but this video really moved me so I will normally don't subscribe to vloggers but I will subscribe to him and say something supportive and ask other Pakistani to do the same. We need to improve our police.

    Foreign tourists who go "off the beaten track" do. I think its because of the low numbers of foreign tourists and the issues we've had in the past.

    Well there is a reason for that...
    Its for Pakistani safety/ security as we have had Raymond kind also running around wild..
    Just coz the person is Western doesnt mean he wont pose a risk...How many Westerners have been caught in Thailand, Malaysia with drugs and whatnots?

    So just coz the person is Western doesnt mean we shouldnt check them? The West checks us just coz we are brown...Whats the problem?

    No problem is doing security check but this is not the way. You can bound them to report to the police station in sensitive areas.. furthermore use technology and latest nonintrusive methods like in west.
