Pakistani is a Islamic country after 1970 Pakistani people move towards


cultural changes Now the trend is change Pakistan moving towards
adoption of new fashion ,western life style, high living standard ,these
thing happen due to media causes, international relationship TV dramas
,Indian films. New generation wants to change in life style, living
standard; they don’t want to follow the tradition.

In Pakistan we have a lot of hotel industry, institute, and hotel industry


that promote modernism and hotel industry; people of Pakistan adopt
new cultural values
