    This will not be as profitable as running a business in Pakistan can be but running a business in Pakistan is very risky, police, local administration and even local magistrates ask you for bribe.

    My friend running a restaurant in Islamabad was openly demanded bribe by a magistrate. Policemen do not pay if they have their family gatherings, same is true for CDA officials.
