The homogenous construction of the middle class is problematic, simultaneously however, allowing a subculture of the Mohalla to exist freely in her work.
Shahi Mohalla in Lahore is gloriously described, each detail allowing for the story to elaborate the lives of the people who inhabit the small alleyways : prostitutes, the pimps, managers and customers, as well as the musicians who provide the melodious backdrop.
On the most basic level, the Mohalla is where the birth of a daughter is celebrated with more gusto than in mainstream Pakistani society - where the female is the breadwinner.

It was, therefore, with an open heart and mind that Fouzia Saeed approached the famous Shahi Mohalla, the red light district of Lahore, attempting to make sense of an area that has visitors who publicly shun the very place they have created for their own recreation.
As we learn from the book Taboo, life inside the Shahi Mohalla consists of an upside down world, where the birth of a girl is celebrated with joy, while news of a son brings unhappiness.
She concludes that in our male dominated culture, the Shahi Mohalla and society do have something in common - one woman is sold in the name of sin, the other is sold in the name of honour.

The interviews and analysis provided by Saeed focus on socialization of the people who work and live in Shahi Mohalla and power dynamics within that socioeconomic framework.
The study was conducted over a 10 year period, and her work is saturated with self reflexive commentary.
One glaringly obvious issue Saeed was not able to overcome was her biased and disparaging views of the middle class Pakistani women.

Some thought going to Shahi Mohalla being a woman was difficult because of more vulnerability and harassment.
