Internet gushes over clothing store named ‘Pakistani Attire’ in India

A clothing store in India has gained mass traction for promoting Pakistani clothes. The shop named "Pakistani Attire" has received immense love and appreciation from Pakistan.

A clothing store in Ludhiana, India Punjab has been named ‘Pakistani Attire’. The shop sells Pakistani dresses and is created by a 36-year-old female Puneet Kaur.

The picture of the shop went viral on social media and has received immense love and appreciation in Pakistan. While Pakistani netizens were excited yet a bit puzzled owing to the rising anti-Pakistan sentiments in India.

According to the Indian media outlet, Indian Express, Puneet Kaur (36), says, “It has been nearly seven years since I have been importing Pakistani suits, dupattas, kurtis, dress material, etc. from Pakistan. I have never received any negative remarks or feedback for naming my shop after Pakistan.”

No difference between the people of India and Pakistan

She added: “Except for a comment or two on Facebook where people told me not to promote Pakistan, no one including my family, friends or clients ever had any problems with it. Pakistani fashion is so unique and the suits are so well-designed that women from Punjab, in fact, the entire northern region, are great fans of Pakistani attire and love buying them. I have clients from across the region, who always appreciate our work.”

The store owner says her female customers come from all communities. “We all are human beings first and God is one. There is no difference between the people of India and Pakistan. It has been years that I have been dealing with the people of Pakistan and they have always been very kind. No one has ever pointed a finger at the name of my store in Ludhiana and they always ask inquisitively about the products we offer,” said Kaur.
