    The article raises alarm in respect of a nation beset with umpteen problems , the major amongst which is the population trap it is marching on to , unchecked . At 21.6 crores strong
    growing at an annual rate of 1.93% , with an age profile of 59% between 15 years to 54 years, Pakistan and a poverty level of nearly 40 %.
    Dwindling jobs and falling food production and rising population makes it very difficult for Pakistan to provide basic amenities to its citizens for their healthy growth. deprived citizens are ready fodder for recruitment in the flourishing Terror industry in Pakistan, making Pakistan a dangerous nation.
    Two readings are recommended to understand Pakistan:-
    A. Anatol Lieven’s book – Pakistan A Hard Country.
