Report The funding given by Research School Plus for field research in different cities of Germany has been a milestone in my Doctoral research and career. This field research about 10 months has given me an insight to the level of personal and social interactions of the key respondents. During my field research I was able to gather relevant information from respondents on my Doctoral theme that is quite sensitive among the Pakistani Muslim community. Meanwhile, I tried to find out whether the religious organisations are helpful for the migrants or not. The research stay increased my knowledge about the living conditions of migrants in different cities of Germany while exploring the change in traditional and social lifestyle of the community. Discussions with people from different fields of life were a big challenge for me that I successfully completed during this field research. Overall my stay was successful in collecting data from diverse Pakistani Muslims in Germany.
