Society Description

We would like to establish the University of Exeter Pakistan Society based on three fundamental principles: UNITY, POLITICAL AWARENESS and CULTURAL EDUCATION.

Pakistan is a land of cultural diversity where more than 60 different languages are spoken. Therefore, the Pakistan Society aims to adapt the characteristics of its nation and present itself as a Society of Cultural Diversity. Being a Pakistani is not at all a member requirement. This club is working towards bridging together a variety of different cultures, in order to give and gain insight on different cultures. 

Exeter has over 130,000 residents. Out of which, 274 were recorded as Pakistanis, in the latest census which is approximately 0.2 per cent of the city’s population. Exeter isn't seen as a main domicile for Pakistanis in the United Kingdom - and with many international students, we would like to provide a safe space where students can find relatability: a home away from home. Many people living in Exeter have never visited Pakistan and thus their perception is based purely on the image portrayed by the media. We would like to showcase the our culture and heritage. 

We at the University of Exeter Pakistani Society aim to not only bring the Pakistanis closer to their culture and heritage but also to improve the way the public perceives Pakistanis. Pakistan has produced some of the greatest painters, thinkers, and musicians of all time, including the likes of Gulgee (Abdul Mohammad), Alama Iqbal, and Noor Jehan. There are more than 60 different languages spoken in Pakistan. Pakistani has also produced some of the greatest leaders of our time including Mohammed Ali Jinnah and Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto. 

The youth of today is the future for tomorrow’s Pakistan. The University of Exeter Pakistani Society hopes to host a range of culturally and politically integrated events that brings Pakistani and non-Pakistani students closer to Pakistan. Pakistan has a rich history that remains a mystery to most of the local Pakistani students. We hope to invite eminent writers and historians to come and speak to the students about their experiences. “Unity” is an innate concept simple to understand but impossible to define. We at the Pakistani Society aim to unite the Pakistani students at the University of Exeter to form a much needed community.
