First impression was wild radish, but the leaves are not the right shape.

It could be Arabidopsis thaliana..

Except for one problem as rightly pointed out by you, the leaves. One the shape and two the fact that my plant leaves are not lying flush to the ground but growing up and along the stem. Other them that I would have had said yaaa Hurray! .
http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Arabidopsis+thaliana&hl=en&...
When my eyes fell on it reminded me of rocket salad or mustard. It does belong to the family Arabidopsis though.
There are at least 20 of those in the database.
http://garden.org/plants/browse/plants/genus/arabidopsis/
and the database is not complete Shrug! .
Janet now what to do?

Arif.

The basal leaves can't be seen Arif, the plant does have some leaves up the flowering stem. Yours looks a healthy plant, the leaf shape looks about right, but without a closer shot it's debateable.

The upper leaves on yours do look perhaps a little bigger but wild plants do vary, best thing to do is search all those species and compare them. Also, find which is most likely to be in your area.

I searched "Arabidopsis in Pakistan" and got several links for Arabidopsis thaliana, including the Flora of Pakistan.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?&q=Arabidopsis+#hl=en&sclient...

If you go to the genus Arabidopsis in Flora of Pakistan there is a key, that will give you the species you have.
