Challenges for PakistanFebruary 4, 2016 at 2:52 pm
Sir: The Islamic Republic of Pakistan has a population of 188 million today. After 68 years of independence, Pakistan is still a developing country. Majority of Pakistan’s population is living in rural areas without basic necessities and today most sectors of Pakistan are dependent on aid from IMF and World Bank. In Pakistan the financial gap between the rich and poor is widening day by day.
According to an analysis conducted by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), the poverty level has increased roughly from 40 percent to 50 percent during the past decade. Officially Pakistan’s literacy rate is 50 percent which means that half of the population is illiterate and those who are termed as literate can only read and write, which is in today’s globalised world is considered as illiterate.
Terrorism is another major problem in Pakistan. The whole world considers Pakistan as a land of terrorists. Pakistan is day by day moving towards destruction due to these challenges and concrete steps are needed to rescue our country.
