Pak contingent ordered to wear shalwar kamiz, not western attire for London GamesKarachi: Pakistan``s London Olympics 2012 Chef de Mission, Aqil Shah, wants the country``s contingent to wear shalwar kamiz, and not the western attire that the organisers have sent for the opening ceremony.

"We want to show our culture - just like all the other countries - and not England``s culture, which is why I am adamant that our players will only wear shalwar kamiz,"

He added that the organisers should understand that Pakistan``s 39-member contingent is in London as the country``s ambassadors and should portray its culture and values.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity for these athletes and they should be allowed to show what they are," he said.
