Cynthia D. Ritchie is an American blogger who resides in Pakistan. She came into the limelight in June 2020, after passing a controversial comment against a few top politicians of Pakistan.

Cynthia Dawn Ritchie has taken Pakistan’s political scene by storm as her ‘revelations’ have put Pakistan People’s Party’s leadership in an embarrassing situation and left them red-faced. The allegations of sexual harassment against have come at a time when the once the most popular political party of the country is facing already a stern challenge to stay in the mainstream and trying to win over its vote bank through the launching of the third generation of the Bhuttos, the heart and soul of the party. With Bilawal Bhutto Zardari waiting in the wings to rise to be a ruler of the country, this blow will surely jeopardise his ambitions to somehow if the things unfolded as said by Cynthia. The allegations are not new on the political scene of the country with scandals of many top politicians always remain in the news and usually some political hand is always behind in such allegations.

But the allegations of rape and sexual harassment against the top brass of the country belonging to a single political party by a foreign woman is a bit unusual and if Cynthia got support from the famous ‘Me Too’ campaign around the world, it would be very difficult for many big names to survive. At the moment she seems quite confident about her allegations and said in a tweet that she has documentary evidence of all the allegations she has made.

Cynthia D. Ritchie is an American woman who claims to be an adventurist, self-claimed filmmaker, and blogger. The 38-year-old blogger describes herself as a global citizen. During an interview with a local news outlet, she reveals how her childhood desire to be Indiana Jones (a fictional adventurist) led her to Pakistan and that the people’s love keeps bringing her back.

A ‘global citizen’ of Scottish-German ethnicity, Cynthia possesses Master of Education with additional graduate training in conflict resolution, psychology, and public relations. She started her own non-profit with a focus on media projects and wishes to eventually permanently relocate to the Middle East/ South Asia. Ritchie is now living in Pakistan and first visited Pakistan in 2009 as a tourist and showed the positive image of Pakistan to the world. Her family members have also visited her in Pakistan many times. People often remember her as ‘the American Batting for Pakistan.’ For Cynthia, Pakistan is so much more than a tourist destination — it is an “adventurers’ heaven”, she fondly calls the country her ‘second home’.

Maybe considered as American agent in Pakistan, neighbouring India considered her a Pakistani agent due to her positive views about the country and describing Indian arrogance around the world. There used to be a website www.cynthiaritchie.com, which had the blogger’s biography, but it has been disabled since Pakistanis raised questions about her qualifications. That defunct website said she had made “TV commercials for AT&T, Political Campaigns, and HGTV. However, the website did not explain what political campaigns she worked on. She’s participated in a variety of humanitarian projects in Pakistan, from flood relief and health care efforts to the reconstruction of high schools and women’s health clinics.
Ritchie said she finds much in common between Pakistan and her native American South, and she now hopes to produce media projects that promote positive relations between Americans and Pakistanis.

She belongs to Louisiana, Texas in the south of America and in she feels many similarities between Pakistan and that part of the United States, mainly centred around family traditions and marriages. She told in a TV programme that she fled America to avoid the suggestions from her aunties to get married and but unfortunately after reaching Pakistan she finds the country the epicentre of match-making aunties. As a child, Ritchie was fascinated by the magical appeal of the Egyptian civilisation and dreamed of visiting Egypt and studying its enthralling archaeology. In a way, her trip to Pakistan and her three-year stay there gave her the opportunity to fulfil her lifelong dream to immerse herself in the vibes of a foreign culture. “Pakistan was introduced to me by Pakistani Americans. I would have probably never come to Pakistan, if it wasn’t for my friends in the U.S. telling me to travel to Pakistan. And as a consequence, Pakistan became my Egypt. My childhood dream was to be the Indiana Jones of Egyptian archaeology,” she said. Bemused at the unmistakable dichotomy between the representation of Pakistan in the mainstream international media and what she witnessed first-hand, Ritchie decided to produce a documentary projecting the true image of Pakistan to the world.
