Sex in karachi
Over time, a professional clan which favoured the society with services of prostitution also evolved.
Men and women belonging to the community committed themselves to the sex trade, where men stayed as supportive influences and women were the main workers.
A recent study indicated that major cities like Karachi, Lahore, Faisalabad and Multan have large population of sex workers.
During the rule of Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, who tried to Islamise the nation, prostitution was viewed as an "evil" in society, and attempts were made to eradicate prostitution. The hours for performance of the dancing girls were reduced to two hours every evening.
Police checkpoints were established in all entrances of red-light districts during the hours of rehearsing or practising music where the names of the visitors in red-light areas were recorded in police register, frightening the clients away.
Prostitution in Pakistan is a taboo culture of sex-trade that exists as an open secret but illegal.
Prostitution is largely based in organisational setups like brothels or furthered by individual call girls in the Punjab province of Pakistan.
