Guidelines

Karwan stands for continuity.

Karwan embarked upon its journey in 1981 as a monthly magazine from Oslo, Norway. Karwan.no aims to become a focal point for Pakistanis living all over the world.

Karwan.no will provide news, reports and comments from Pakistan as well as from other countries and regions where Pakistanis are settled. It will pinpoint and highlight their activities and issues whichever country they maybe in.

Pakistanis very strongly value their culture and heritage. The connection with their homeland keeps them interested into getting information about the happenings in Pakistan. Karwan.no will work to provide them with this information as well as comments and analysis of the situation in Pakistan and other regions.
