Corruption is the Worst Disease

Despite several anti-corruption laws and state organs, the corruption is on the increase with every passing day.

We are living in a society where one segment of the society enjoys all the benefits, the wealth and power, while others are deprived of it.

The corrupt elements that exist at every level in the government, have not even spared the flood-affected people of Sindh and are openly involved in plunder of huge relief funds and material.     

Our country is facing a very grave problems since long. It is the problem of corruption – the most serious issue which our country is facing. It is due to this problem that there is political instability in the country. The corruption arises in a society due to the unequal distribution of resources. We are living in a society where one segment of the society enjoys all the benefits, the wealth and power, while others are deprived of it. If an officer’s son is getting better education in a better school (due to the wealth acquired by unfair means), so wants the son of clerk also but it is not possible for a clerk to arrange that facility for his son from meager salary. Such a situation compels him to demand bribe and indulge in corruption. It is a little example but there are many faces of corruption. It is like the heathen gods and goddesses of antiquity that seem to acquire a dozen heads and scores of arms there. There is hardly an area of human activity free from corruption. It has rightly been said that the worst disease in the world is corruption. The corrupt elements that exist at every level in the government, have not even spared the flood-affected people of Sindh and are openly involved in plunder of huge relief funds and material.

Although there are a number of anti-corruption laws and anti-corruption departments and agencies at the provincial as well as federal level, but they have miserably failed to eradicate corruption. On the contrary the corruption is on the increase with every passing day. This makes me to believe that even the anti-corruption organizations of the state and the people sitting at the helm of affairs there, too, are corrupt. The situation testifies an old saying that ‘the more corrupt the state, the more laws’.
