The prices of fruit, vegetable and daily commodities went up with the advent of Ramzan. There is a difference between our actions and talk and that is what is destroying our nation. Everyone keeps on saying that Ramzan is a blessing but formal looting can be seen everywhere. The authorities claim that committees have been formed to control prices; but these are empty promises.

I would like to request all shopkeepers, who claim to be Muslims to join hands and not raise prices, instead reduce them and see how Allah will bless them and this month will really become a month of blessing for all. If we really and truly are Muslims, not just in name lets try this one tear and see the blessing which is in the demand and supply theory of economic books.
