Pakistan maintains every possible reason to be proud of the thousands of year’s old and rich tradition of its arts and crafts. In the post-independence period, the successive governments have been adequately providing substantial state help and key initiative for the uplift of modern arts and unique crafts in the beloved country. A wider recognition of the accomplishments of crafts-people has been facilitated by the activities of the National Crafts Council and promotional plans of organizations like the Export Promotion Bureau and Small Industries Corporations. Pakistani craftsmen are well reputed in producing quality products in local clay, precious stone, luxurious fabrics, gorgeous carpets, precious wood, rare metal, valuable jewelry and genuine leather.
Pakistan has been precisely the cradle of a modern civilization that dates back more than five millenniums. Over the many centuries, after considerable migrations from the north-west, as well as by internal migrations across the subcontinent the Aryans, Persians, Greeks, Arabs, and Mughals came willingly and settled peacefully in the region of Pakistan. Pious Muslims from the earliest days built modern cities, historic forts, magnificent palaces, notable mosques, madrassas (religious schools), sacred tombs and private mausoleums, which are accurately marked by simplicity as well as grandeur.
Pakistan typically inherits immense treasure of modern culture, and the democratic government is undoubtedly trying its best to carefully preserve and enthusiastically promote this cultural treasure. Pakistan has several responsible government agencies like Pakistan National Council of Arts, Lok Virsa (Folk Heritage), National Film Development Corporation, Authority for Preservation of Mohenjo-Daro and National Archives of Pakistan, where each of the mentioned agencies perform admirably a given set of essential functions in the areas necessary.
