Ramzan is considered to be the holiest of all months in Islam but in this part of the world, traders, mill owners, profiteers and hoarders indulge in all sorts of immoral activities in this month. They virtually make it impossible for the people to buy commodities at the prices that prevailed before Ramzan. The Ramzan packages announced by our government are usually a mere slogan as they have been this year too. The government can defeat the hoarders and profiteers only with the cooperation of the common people. -RAFIA ZUBAIR, Karachi, via e-mail, August 29.
