Why Ramazan Arrival Lead to Price Raise in Pakistan Every Year?
Ramazan Arrival is directly proportional to price rise in Pakistan
Ramazan is indeed a month of blessings. It is the time to be empathetic and feels sympathy for others as well. But our business owners take it as an opportunity to make the most money out of this Holy time. Instead of being empathetic, they themselves indulge in this cruel and unjustified act of false price raise. This makes the sehri and aftari both hard for the low to medium economic classes.

Ramazan and the Business practices all over the World
Muslims live all around the world. At places, where they are in minority, businessmen take special measures to relieve the Muslims in this month. They not only respect the month Ramazan but understand its essence to an extent that they at least give price discounts on every possible eatable that could be utilized by the Muslims during this month, and thus show solidarity with them. It is the practice which has been prevailing for years and which is altogether different from the so-called Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Following are some advertisements excerpts from few Swedish shops showing the way they respect this month.
Government every year makes a special committee in Ramazan to control the price checklist in utility stores and Ramazan bazaars. But I am always unable to understand how and why business owners in Pakistan become so selfish? Why don’t businessmen realize the purpose of Ramazan to feel the pain of unprivileged? Why do they rush for immediate gains and forget the everlasting benefits they could get by accommodating others who are in despair? Why do they need Government’s danda every year to keep the prices reasonable? Couldn’t they be responsible enough on their own?
