Through the column of your esteemed newspaper i want to save the life of those people who use the fake medicines. Every year many people in Pakistan die after using fake medicines. The market of fake medicines in the country is worth billions. No quality control and lack of supervision is the main reason for the open sale of fake medicines. It seems that the authorities cannot exercise their powers. 

The sale of these medicines is not limited to Pakistan. In fact, many profiteers sell these medicines online to many countries in the world. The need of the hour is to trace every market where such practices are being carried out. Those involved in this form of criminal activity should be given severe punishment so that it may serve as a deterrent for others.
