Sadly there are no Masonic Lodges in Pakistan, so you will not be able to join in the present environment.

Most majority muslim countries have banned Freemasonry, it remains unclear why.

I am from a Muslim country; I have an idea why. We can discuss that one day :)

I don’t think it’s that unclear why.  At least I have a firm belief of what it is.  It has to do with the findings of the Islamic Jurisdictional College in 1978.  If you read their findings and statement on Freemasonry, you will a)be horrified at the falsehoods that they somehow managed to get together and agree were true, and b)get a great summary of what I’ve experienced as the main arguments against Freemasonry in the Islamic world.

It’s very sad that pretty much their entire list of findings is so incredibly false, and yet has an in fluency on so many people.

The reason I say that the reasons remain unclear is based on the Islamic books that I have read (so far) and things like this link (https://islamqa.info/en/34576) The fact that they all lie and profusely means that I can’t fathom what the real reason is, assuming of course that there is an actual fact based reason somewhere.

Interesting point.  You are stating that in fact they are knowingly lying, and that they have another motive.  If that is so, I agree, the reason remains unclear.  I guess I just prefer to chalk it up to extreme ignorance rather than intentional manipulation, but perhaps you are closer to the mark?

They are knowingly adhering to the Taxil Hoax as fact and are still influenced by the propaganda the the Nazis spread about Freemasonry.
