Rawalpindi Cantonment Tourist Traps
The Cantt (Cantonment) area of Rawalpindi is full of intelligence personal i.e. both civil and military. If they see a foreign tourist taking pictures, they establish an oppinion by their own as if the tourist is a spy - thus they catch the tourist and start questioning. It is their favourite hobby to harras the tourists specially if a tourist is white caucasian.
Unique Suggestions: Never run away before them - just keep in mind how to tackle a frantic dog. Calm down, speak polite and address him "Sir". Because usually such personals are oers and thus they are not respected by their officers - rather resented - therefore, try to give them respect. Show them your id and say "I did´nt know that; okey I delete this image and will not take anymore!"
In most of the cases it works.
Fun Alternatives: If you are trapped very badly, then insist them to meet with their officer. In most of the cases officers resolves the problems amicably. However, remember the numbers of your embassy and ask the offcials to get you contact with your embassy - but remain calm and polite.Related to:
