Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar visited Kashmir for the first time, relishing in the tranquil charms of Gulmarg and Pahalgam among the region’s breathtaking scenery. Sachin immersed himself in the fascinating surroundings by attending friendly cricket matches with the locals alongside his family. His visit coincided with a historic surge in visitors to Jammu & Kashmir, with numbers reaching an all-time high of 1.88 crore between 2021 and 2022. In particular, Kashmir welcomed an astounding 26.73 lakh tourists, greatly exceeding the record set in 2016.

Sachin, the god of cricket, discovered a little piece of heaven in the ski resorts of Gulmarg and the winter wonderlands of Pahalgam. On the other hand, only 100 kilometers away in Pakistan’s North Kashmir offered a very different reality that was frequently referred to as “hell on Earth.”

Examining the different routes taken by these adjacent regions provides important insights into Pakistan’s current state of affairs. Pakistan is plagued by violence, attacks on minorities, and horrifying lynching instances despite its strict anti-blasphemy laws. The lynching of a man in Sri Lanka in 2021, together with recent events in Lahore, Turbat, and Nankana, bring to light the pervasive problem of religious extremism in Pakistan’s political and social spheres.

Even though they make up just 4% of the population, Christians and other minorities are disproportionately accused of blasphemy. A considerable number of Muslims, Ahmadis, Christians, and Hindus were charged between 1987 and 2018, with over 1,000 girls being forced to convert to Islam year. Sectarian violence affects the Shia minority as well, which is indicative of how dangerous it is for religious minorities in Pakistan.

The political scene is likewise turbulent, with accusations of election cheating and political instability personified by former prime ministers Imran Khan and Nawaz Sharif. Election integrity and transparency have been under intense scrutiny in the wake of the 2018 elections and the events that followed in 2024.

Pakistan is experiencing a severe economic crisis that is exacerbated by dwindling federal reserves, an alarmingly high percentage of child poverty, and a shattered IMF agreement. Still, a $700 million IMF bailout provides a brief respite in the face of persistent economic difficulties.

There are several problems with Pakistan’s job market, which adds to the country’s high unemployment rate and dismal prospects for the labor force. The nation’s pervasive problems are further highlighted by the endemic nature of polio and an inadequate educational system.

The population boom in Pakistan is putting further strain on the country and escalating worries about regional security, particularly with regard to India. Pakistan has to manage a complicated web of regional and international ties, as seen by its history of state-sponsored terrorism and current geopolitical tensions include threats from Afghanistan and Iran.

Pakistan’s geopolitical weaknesses and the falsehoods surrounding its nuclear capability are exposed by the country’s attempts to exert supremacy in the Islamic world and the actuality of surgical strikes by Iran and India.

Essentially, Pakistan is perilously close to an economic and social abyss, with its international standing and domestic stability at jeopardy. These eight facts provide a sharp contrast to Sachin Tendulkar’s picture-perfect tour to Kashmir, highlighting the serious issues and harsh realities that Pakistan is currently confronting.
