It is a point of grave concern that Pakistani society is becoming more and more materialistic with every passing day. The mad race for material things has made even our masses shirk hard work and honesty. This tendency has isolated our society from the true, noble spirit of life and pushed us towards selfishness. The wish to become rich overnight by hook or crook has resulted in hazardous consequences for the society so murders, robberies, kidnappings, bomb explosions etc, are on the rise. This materialistic approach must be done away with if we are to survive as a nation. -ABDUL SAMAD SAMO, Kar-achi, July 6.
