Poverty in Pakistan:
Instead of these natural comforts, Pakistan is victimized by poverty. Poverty is the most serious problem of Pakistan. There are so many causes of poverty which have their effects on the society, people and economy of Pakistan. Illiteracy is the first cause behind poverty. It gives less food with more money. Floods have their own share towards it. It deprives people of their crops and brings diseases along with it. Drought is a very dangerous thing. It deprives people from edibles. They don’t have even proper clothing because they are left with nothing by drought.
Unemployment and wrong policies also contribute a lot towards it. When people feel that they are not given what is their due right, a criminal attitude starts developing in them. Wars also throw economy to its bottom. Hence, people are left with low quality of life and destruction.
