In­creas­ing Poverty

Enterprise - - Letters -

So­cial prob­lems are so­ci­etal in­duced con­di­tions that harm any seg­ment of the pop­u­la­tion. So­cial prob­lems are also re­lated to acts and con­di­tions that vi­o­late the norms and val­ues found in so­ci­ety. Some prob­lems are of se­ri­ous mag­ni­tude and re­sult in dis­lo­ca­tion. Some prob­lems are not very se­ri­ous and if ig­nored can re­sult in fur­ther se­ri­ous­ness. There are so many causes of so­cial prob­lems in Pak­istan.

Ac­cord­ing to an anal­y­sis con­ducted by the gov­ern­ment of Pak­istan, poverty has in­creases roughly from 30% to 40% dur­ing the past decade. Pak­istan re­mains a feu­dal so­ci­ety where 90% of its wealth is owned by 10% of the peo­ple. In­dus­tri­al­iza­tion has suf­fered be­cause of the un­pre­dictable econ­omy and pol­i­tics.

Ed­u­ca­tion, cor­rup­tion, po­lit­i­cal in­sta­bil­ity as well as ter­ror­ism are also great so­cial prob­lems in Pak­istan. Ter­ror­ism in Pak­istan has be­come a ma­jor and highly de­struc­tive phe­nom­e­non in re­cent years. The whole world looks at Pak­istan as a land of ter­ror­ists. The main rea­sons of ex­ploita­tion are the re­li­gious lead­ers and re­ac­tion of the mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions both in­ter­nally as well as ex­ter­nally.

There are so many so­cial prob­lems in Pak­istan and we face a lot of dif­fi­cul­ties due to th­ese so­cial tribu­la­tions. We have to solve th­ese such prob­lems oth­er­wise our rep­u­ta­tion will be so much dam­aged, which is not good for our coun­try and for our fu­ture.
