"I am a Pakistani nation but living abroad due to my job, I have visited so many time the Islamabad Airport (don't have any other option) and found the worst situation ever. In October 2005 I went to Islamabad for only 3 days,can any one believes that it took 3 hours yes three hours to get rid of Stupid Immigration Officers, custom guys, porters, and then finally taxi drivers porter out side. Now my recent trip, I was coming back from London and had to go a gulf state to re join my duties, Again (not willingly) I had to face immigration staff (same kind which has been described), stupid police with having authority to open your bags badly and not closing after so called inspection, OFFICIAL SIGNATURE on passports (only at Islamabad airport), x ray machine check up (but officials are concentrating some where else), touching your all body areas (even for ladies as well but in a cabin),very rude staff especially female staff), internal quarrelling of staff, and stupid passenger (most of them)......................do not want to say any more, all know well, sleeping government, I am sure the situation can never be changed.........."
