Poverty in Pakistan

Poverty is one of the major social problem Pakistan is facing. It is one of the most important and sensitive issue not only for our self but for the whole world. Poverty can cause other social problems like theft, bribe, corruption, adultery, lawlessness, injustice. To eradicate the evils of society we have to fight with poverty. We can't control theft by enrolling thousands of police men. Corruption and injustice can't come to an end through tight legislation but by demolishing poverty.

A low level of domestic income for an individual results in lack of access to education, health care, and other communal facilities like lake of sanitation, transportation and communication. The poverty of thought is the major social problem. To eradicate poverty in Pakistan we have to fight with the causes and factors of poverty. Unless the causes and factors of poverty will be settled the poverty will never end.

Ignorance is one of the important aspect of poverty. Ignorance is lake of information or lake knowledge. In this modern age of scientific revolution we are far behind in the education and most importantly scientific education. Our literacy rate is less than fifty percent the female education rate is even in miserable state. The right kind of education to the individuals is the solution of poverty. The right kind of education to the farmer is the knowledge of scientific ways of agriculture. A progressive and professional thinking is required in the farmers.

Poverty can't come to an end unless we will spend much larger share of our GDP to the education sector. We have to open more primary and secondary schools especially in our villages. In the 1971 constitution we made primary education compulsory and free. The constitution made a pledge to made secondary education free with in next ten years. Leave the secondary education we are not able to provide even free primary education both to boys and girls after passing 35 years. If our government make pledge that they are able to cut down poverty without paying any heed to the education sector they are wrong in their statements. The poverty can't come to an end unless the illiteracy and ignorance is come to an end.

Fight with disease is an other factor which can reduce poverty. A sick nation can't grow more wealth and comforts as compare to healthy one. Diseases not only bring discomfort, uneasiness, misery, and death but it can affect productivity. Providing a healthy environment to peoples by providing safe drinking water, hygienic food and most importantly pollution free environment is one step to fight poverty. According to Japanese company which conducted its research on drinking water in Pakistan majority of us or drinking nontransparent and unhygienic water. According to reports of water sample this water can result in weakness and decay of bones. These water samples were collected from the major cities where government water reaches the citizens through filtering process. The situation will be much worst in the villages where in twenty first century animals and humans drink water from the same pond.

According to human right reports 0.3 million children in Pakistan died because of polluted water. Fighting disease not only we can bring down the death rate but also the expenditures which common men spend on doctors, hospitals and drugs. Prevention is better than cure is very important in fight against poverty. A lots of families conduct suicide after spending their whole property to any of their near and dear cure. A healthier nation will be more positive and progressive in earning their live hoods.

The attitude of peoples is very important in addressing poverty. There came a situation when peoples start thinking power less and negative. They start realizing there is nothing for them in the national income. They start feeling jealous to other who has wealth. As a result conspiracies, revolts and lawlessness spread all over. It is the responsibility of leadership to give an encouraging thinking to the peoples.
