    I can’t understand why some people are acting as the faith is something bad. Religious people are not sick. Measure is best in everything. If FBOs are helping people why should we be afraid of them.

    I think this link between religion and development is one sphere that has been under-studied in Pakistan. There is an urgent need for more such studies in order to understand the complex relationships between religion, social development and Pakistani society. People here tend to trust charities that have a religious affiliation, whereas there is an inherent mistrust of secular NGO’s.
