I wonder why the various write-ups do not investigate the rise in counterfeit products in the country, starting from cigarettes to many other goods openly available in the market. All the counterfeit products results in damaging our economy and enormous sums of taxes are evaded resulting in huge revenue losses for the country. I would like to appreciate the government’s efforts towards the Korean counterfeit cigarette brand, the campaign ensuring a strong message against the counterfeit brand and surely campaigns like these would result in dividends for the state. I want to request the journalists and columnists to highlight the impact of this illicit trade on our economy and give credit to the government where it is due; otherwise the mafia involved in this illegal business will continue to make money and damage our motherland.BEENISH SAWATI,Lahore, September 17.
