Record Breaking Charities By Pakistanis This Ramazan
In today’s world of chaos and negativity, this news literally brings a breeze of fresh air to my mind and soul. Every now and then, when I come across national news related to price hike challenge, street crimes, harassment news, heat waves, scarcity of water and greenery, I ask myself that there would at least be something positive going in this piece of land too. It was literally hard to believe for me that all gentlemen and pious people from Pakistan are escaped leaving behind only the sick minded people and robbers. But this news indeed was a ray of hope, a positive vibe, a news which refreshes your mind and soul, and reassures you that yes, good people are still around us, doing tremendously great tasks for the benefit of the society as a whole.

I read in the newspaper that the charity breaks the record this Ramazan and philanthropic activities in Pakistan are going to set a new record of around Rs. 173 Billion. Public involvement and their philanthropic activities during the Ramazan period are especially worth mentioning. People try to reach every possible needy and connect with them in the form of monthly Raashan, cash, Aftaari, Eid gifts, fitraana, zakat, and donations.
I feel really great and proud to read that we, as a nation, are still waking and sensitive to our brothers in need. The essence of Ramazan to be sympathetic and empathic is witnessed at its full bloom as far as giving charity is concerned. I wish every other sector/field of Pakistan would be honest with itself and there would be no hunger, and no violation of rights can be observed then.
