The world’s most prestigious film award, the Oscar, was given to Pakistani filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy for her short documentary Saving Face, which focuses on one of those issues which the West loves to promote about Pakistan - violence against women.
 I wonder whether Ms Obaid-Chinoy’s work would have received the same international acclaim had the documentary highlighted any positive aspect of our country?
