Pakistani Instagram accounts you need to follow!


By Aliya Zuberi

KARACHI: With Instagram being one of the most used social media platforms, especially in Pakistan, it comes as no surprise, that every other person deems themselves to be a content creator. However, out of all the so-called Pakistani content creators out there, very few have content that is actually useful. So, we have filtered out and picked five Pakistani content creators whose Instagram accounts you should absolutely follow!

Dupattadiaries – Kainat Ali Khan

Kainat Ali Khan is half Pakistani, half Afghani and fully inspiring. The young mother, who lives in the UK, is the co-founder of an NGO called Mothers of Afghanistan, who have set out with the aim of feeding families in Afghanistan.

But that is not all that makes Kainat so interesting. She is incredibly relatable and her content is diverse. To go along with her aesthetically pleasing pictures, her captions make us think and reflect. She also documents struggles every desi girl has to face and offers advice on how to deal. Plus, she also chronicles the antics of both, her unbelievably adorable son Musa and her wholesome husband. She makes us laugh and self-reflect and for all those reasons, you should follow her!
