Miss Pakistan Word was founded by a Pakistani-Canadian business woman Sonia Ahmad in 2002. Initially its name was Miss Pakistan Canada. The reason to organize this program in Canada means outside Pakistan is that in Pakistan such type of program is not acceptable for Pakistani people because their culture and religion does not allow it. Latter when Pakistani women from all over world started to take part in these pageants then its name changed to Miss Pakistan World. This pageant is the only such type of Pakistani program in the world. First title of these programs was awarded to Zehra Shirazi in 2003 at Ottawa, Canada.
In 2014 Sonia Ahmad, President, Miss Pakistan World shifted all pageant and its team to New Jersey USA. This is the first time when this program was held outside Canada.
Though this program is called Miss Pakistan World, but the winner of these programs were sent to other international such type of pageant like Miss Earth, where they represent Pakistan. Naomi Zaman in 2006 and Zehra Shirazi in 2003 were sent in such type of pageant. Miss Shanze Hayat winner of Miss Pakistan World 2013 was sent to Miss Earth 2014 contest in Phillipian. But still they do not participated in Miss World and Miss Universe Program.
