This is actually a question for a Pakistani attorney: U.S. law does not apply extraterritorially (that is, outside the U.S.), so even if you did something that could pass down the property IF it were located in the U.S., if that did not work under or comply with Pakistani law, it would be unavailing. You need a solution that will apply to property in Pakistan under Pakistani law.
