In 2023, the Pakistani government is suffering from its worst economic crisis. According to estimates, the country’s debt has doubled yearly for 25 years. Ramadan this year saw a worsening of the situation.
The government cannot give its citizens common necessities like food, gas, and electricity. Importantly, the cost of essentials has increased, making it difficult for people to provide meals for their families.
In the year 2023, the scenario will get worse during Ramadan. The populace has difficulty paying for food and other basics. However, residents of the region cannot prepare Sehri for their pre-fast meals and iftar because of the gas cutoff caused by Karachi’s load shedding.
Also, most people need assistance finding out how to begin or end their Ramadan fasts. Speaking of the serious lack of wheat in the nation, reports from Pakistan indicate that a rout may have contributed to the deaths of close to 12 people.
As wheat bags were being distributed to the populace by the government, the country’s citizens were what started the stampede. Due to the unrest, some attendees at the distribution in Charsadda’s market area suffered injuries.
The fact that people have experienced stampedes or deaths that are related to them before makes the seriousness of the situation obvious. However, they must risk their lives to obtain food and other necessities for their families.
The account of a family of three who attempted suicide provides another indication of how awful the situation is. The family, which consisted of a couple and their two children, used poison to end their lives.
A male served as the family’s head and the only member to earn a living. Due to the attempt, the family’s two-year-old daughter passed away. The increasing inflation and a lack of employment were the causes of the suicide attempt.
