Youth is the most important asset of a nation. Either nations prosper and develop because of them, or collapse. I want to draw everyones attention towards one of the important issue of unprecedented rise in population. Now, the question I would raise is; do we have enough opportunities, facilities, education and healthcare system for these 180 million people? In few years when these children will grow up, would they be able to get a quality life that they deserve? Government should come up with some family planning programs to control the population growth. -ZAINAB BUKHARI, Karachi, October 12.
