Pakistan Survey

By Khalid Hashmani, McLean

… According to Dawn newspaper, people of Pakistan are realizing the setback that high expenditure in defense has caused to their education and other social needs. According to the newspaper article, a recent survey in Pakistan, 95% of respondents want cuts in the defense budget and 50% want that education and health be given top priority.

The full article can be read at: http://www.dawn.com/2008/06/02/nat3.htm

The survey was conducted by well-known NGO named SUNGI Foundation. The survey respondents also want the budget allocation to be on the basis of justice, equality, and democracy and feel that unnecessary ministries should be abolished.

I hope that the new government would consider these demands of people and initiate affirmative action programs in the rural areas of Pakistan.
