Teen offers differing viewpoints on PakistanPosted: Updated:
A teenager in New Jersey has set up a Web site to combat what he believes is too much negative publicity against his homeland, Pakistan.
Zain Ammass, a Leonia High School senior, set up Urbanpk.com two years ago as a forum for views on the country. The site now attracts around a million viewers per month.
"Everyone can give viewpoint[s]," says the 17-year-old. Urbanpk.com offers a message board for public discussion as well as news, photographs and access to further resources.
Ammass hopes to expand on the site in light of recent events like the assassination of Benazir Bhutto as Pakistan garners more media attention.
