Famous People From Pakistan list

Come to think of Pakistan and your mind will be swamped with images of nefarious crimes, political instability, Talibanism, corrupt elites and terrorism. But beyond all the hostile headlines and bad press, there exists another Pakistan — a country that boasts of unparalleled geographic beauty, mind-boggling architectural glories, unbelievable archaic bazaars and heart-warming people. That is right! Pakistanis beat many nationalities when it comes to their warm hospitality. But that is not the only good thing about India’s next-door neighbor. Besides being home to the highest mountain range, largest deep sea port, highest paved international road, highest polo ground, and largest irrigation system, Pakistan is the first Islamic nation to attain nuclear power. A minefield of inexhaustible talent and unlimited resources, Pakistan has given the world some exemplary figures like Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Malala Yousafzai, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Wasim Akram, Imran Khan and many other unsung heroes who have contributed to promote a pro-Pakistani image to the world. It is because of their individual efforts that today Pakistan is appreciated, however little. Let us draw inspiration from the lives of famous Pakistanis through their timeline, trivia and interesting facts covered in their biographies here.
