Pakistan Brags Their Beauty Queens

I have been reading news article about Pakistani beauty pageants and I can't help myself but to raise my eyebrows. I am asking myself if I have missed any international beauty pageants with a Pakistani representative competing but I guess I have never seen so many except in Mrs. World or in Miss Earth.
But according to two news article, the Pakistani women are the most beautiful women on earth and that out of 20 beauty pageants they have participated in for the last five years, they have captured 15 of the titles.
Based on what I have seen in my travel abroad, I have to agree Pakistani women are more beautiful  in general than the Indian women but not overall in the world.
Well, this is subjective and probably the writers are just being too patriotic or nationalistic. I leave to you the judgment. Take a look on these two articles.

Nosheen Idrees standing 5 feet 7 inches in height, and a runner up 3 of Miss Pakistan World is representing Pakistan in the third largest pageant in the World. In a span of just over 5 years, Pakistan has established Miss Pakistan World and Mrs. Pakistan World, participating in 20 international beauty pageants and winning over 15 international pageant titles.

Sonia Ahmed, President of Miss Pakistan World said that Pakistan has accomplished what other countries took 50 years to accomplish in just over 5 years. Pakistani women are the most beautiful women in the world and pageants are a very important way for these women to be given a voice. The Miss Pakistan World pageant will be in its 7th year whereas the Mrs. Pakistan World will be in its 3rd year in the year 2009.

2009 will mark the seventh year for the Miss Pakistan World pageant. Pakistan will go down in history for being the country becoming a success in just less than 5 years in international pageantry.

The 21st World Miss University will be taking place this November and Tahira Iqbal, Runner up 4 will be representing Pakistan internationally. Tahira has also won Miss Congeniality for Miss Pakistan World 2008. Previous World Miss University Pakistan delegates were Zehra Sheerazi, Sonya Zia, Bushra Jamil and now Tahira Iqbal.

A student of communications at the University of Sheffield, Miss Idrees was crowned the third runner up for the Miss Pakistan World pageant on the 23rd of May 2008.

Nosheen expects to bring back a title, which can place Pakistan as a country that has the most beautiful women all through the world.

Nosheen said, “Pakistan is a country where the most beautiful women exist and it's a shame that it's not recognized for it.”

Nosheen is set to change the perception of how the world considers Pakistan and confidently she saids that she may be capable of spreading the message of harmony for her country and be a great representative for the youth.
