Noise pol­lu­tion

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

SYEDA NIDA RAZA Most of us are used to the sounds we here all the time like traf­fic, peo­ple chat­ting, tele­vi­sion, loud mu­sic, dogs bark­ing at night etc. These sounds are now part of our life - our so-called modern urban life. Pol­lu­tion is not limited to en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion; noise pol­lu­tion is also a big con­cern.

Noise pol­lu­tion means ex­ces­sive sounds pro­duced by any kind of source. Causes of noise pol­lu­tion are in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion, lack of city plan­ning, con­struc­tion ac­tiv­i­ties, trans­porta­tion, so­cial events like mar­riages, birth­days and etc. Gov­ern­ment must at least take ac­tion to re­duce noise pol­lu­tion near hospi­tals and other sen­si­tive ar­eas. — Karachi
