In 21st century Pakistan faces serious issue which led in increasing of Poverty level. Our biggest problem is poverty. More than 40pc people in the country live below the poverty line. The authorities have not paid any attention to the welfare of the poor.

Pakistan is an agriculture country blessed with four seasons with the land enriched with natural resources; the land of Baluchistan is full of minerals and resources. Pakistan is the country having more than 97 % Muslims following Islamic rules, Zakat is included in 5 pillars of Islam, which apparently shows that Pakistan have the well distributed wealth, but the ground reality is exactly opposite. The poverty level in Pakistan is increasing day by day and more than 40 % people with in the country are living their lives below the poverty line on average they are earning less than 125 RS.

The wealth distribution in Pakistan is presenting a situation where one family looking for new BMW, while another family looking for one time meal. Poverty in Pakistan is increasing day by day, and because of poverty and hunger more than thousands of people commit suicide with their families.

It’s time the government took suitable action to solve the problem.
