    Default R.A.K. Stickers on Cabs in RWP/ISB

    I just found this clip in my facebook and considered it appropriate to share with all fellows at Pakwheels. I don't know it has already been shared or not.

    Mods: If it is already posted then please remove this thread.

    I think a research on PARANDAs hanging in and around the cabs is also needed.

    So its finally Rustam Asif Khan... But somehow I doubt it... I would rater believe it got derived from RAC (Royal Automobile Club) to RAK (Royal Automobile Klub) considering the spelling of most people in Pakistan.

    Or RAK can also be "Ras Al Khaimah" a city in UAE, which also seems feasible as most taxi drivers inspired by arab world... want to drive taxi there...

    Searching "Ras Al Khaimah" gives top results in cars/taxis which also add weight to the argument.. "RAK" registerd cars have RAK onRAK Stickers on Cabs in RWPISB -184034

    @Waqas

    RAC is also mentioned in the video and according to ustad Rustam Khan, 'A' stands for Asif, his friend. As far as Ras-Al-Khaima is concerned, I can bet majority of cab drivers wouldn't even be aware if it is part of UAE or they can't name all the states/cities of UAE. So the research seems to be authentic.

    Anyway, these are just my comments, others may differ.

    Long time back i was also thinking of RAK and made a small research and according to my information (collected from taxi drivers and most sticker wala) RAK stood for Rasool Allah Khair but this was not confirmed and one driver even said that this is the reason that A is in center and highlited by stars because of Allah name. But i was not convinced after some more research in bao muhala rawalpindi i was also lead to the same place on chor chock.

    Well, most of cab drivers who have RAK on their ride don't even know anything about Rustam Asif Khan.

    Ideally he should have also interviewed that Asif dude because at that part his (Rustam Khan's) body language was not very convincing (at least to me)...

    Anyways good job by the guy in the video. (Y)
