Pakistan ranks fourth in the most dangerous countries right after El Salvador and Yemen according to a report.
A report released this year in June by The World Economic Forum has analyzed the travel and tourism sectors in 136 countries. The Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report includes a ranking of how safe the countries are for tourists.
Decades of internal conflict and violence against the certain religious group in Pakistan has affected the country’s tourism. Many foreigners are forbidden to access certain places in Pakistan.
The World Economic Forum ( WEF) ranked the safety of each of those countries based on its tourism and safety of tourists. The ranking was based on “measures the extent to which a country exposes tourists and businesses to security risks mainly related to serious harm to people (violence and terrorism).” The rank excluded petty crimes in the ranked countries and did not take them into account, according to the Business Insider.
