Crime In Pakistan Essay

713 words - 3 pages

The world has evolved into a system which has a sophisticated set of laws encompassing our lives in this modern society. This set of laws is a significant part of our society which holds it together and aims at protecting it against any harm. Infringing this very system is termed as a crime. Across the world, with so many different legal systems of various countries, the laws also differ accordingly and the definition of crime is perceived through those set of laws, henceforth, different perceptions of crime are existing. Pakistani society, of which I am a part of, perceives crime to be something which detriments the social order, harmony and peace. It is a misfortune that this crime is being done at an alarmingly rate since a decade now. A more startling fact is that the ones who are committing this crime are the ones who are running the government which claims to protect the very set of laws they are violating. So, how can such a governing body deal with crimes they themselves are committing and prevent others from doing it to maintain the social order?

I strongly believe that the Pakistani society has been faintly effective in dealing with the high level of crime. Crime in Pakistan is prevalent mainly because of two bodies; Political figures and the highly deprived and underprivileged people. Political figures are the ones who commit the crimes which detrimentally affects our society whereas the poverty-stricken ones only commit petty crimes which disrupt the social order but to a lesser extent. Only the ones committing such minor acts of violation are punished. Criminality extends into all levels of society and known criminals have ties to political figures and are thus able to frustrate legitimate attempts to enforce law and order. Such criminals are never punished as they are backed by political figures. Hence they have been emboldened by not getting any punishments for committing crimes. Such ineffectiveness is largely due to the high level of corruption in the main sectors; the government and the police. Nowadays the government is openly...
