Currently Dr.Fouzia Saeed is Executive Director of Lok Virsa . She is brave , hardworking and honest lady of Pakistan . She not only knows about Pakistani Culture but also has great knowledge about other nations culture . looking her vast knowledge on culture , I would like to say , she herself is a culture institution .
  • You live in Islamabad or only visiting it for leisure, you should not miss this awesome place where you will find a great treasure of folklore and an excellent museum too. Bring your kids and they can learn a lot about our culture.
