Crime in Pakistan is present in various forms. Organized crime include drug trafficking, money laundering, forged Indian currency printing, extortion, murder for hire and fraud. Other criminal operations engage in human trafficking, corruption, black marketeering, political violence, terrorism, abduction etc The question is that what are the main reasons of crime in Pakistan society and why it is increasing so rapidly it is because of the rising poverty, unemployment and inequality in Pakistani society the rising case differences divide the society in to various parts and according to the status law will be provided this contribute a lot in making people aggressive and frustrated and later on it become cause of crime in society. Other Major causes are unemployment and illiteracy rate but there are some other factors too like lawlessness, fundamentalism, backwardness and double standards prevailing in the society. People around the world always think of Pakistanis as terrorists- we aren’t all like that. Yes, I agree that there is a high crime rate, however, most Pakistani’s in the lesser civilized areas of Pakistan suffer from extreme depths of poverty, which is somewhat the main reason for high crime rates. What Pakistani government is doing for the betterment of its nation is the question in minds of every Pakistani. Pakistani nation is disappointed that the government is not going to provide safety and security to any one the properties and lives are not protected. Frustration and aggression among youth is also becoming the cause of crime in Pakistani society youth could change the future of country but in Pakistan youth are not given any rights nor there is security of their futures almost every Pakistani is in dept Pakistan is facing a crucial financial crunch and it will remain the same. There are no jobs and if some so there is no job safety people are disappointed and due to that they become frustrated conduct crime like theft taking bribers and what not. In Pakistani society there is no rule and regulation and due to lack of judiciary there is no fear of being punished so this also contributes in increase in crime rate. What measures should be adopted by the government to reduce the increasing crime rate some suggestion which I received from Pakistani youth are.

Strong judiciary

 Honest officers in law maintaining departments

 Increase in salaries of police officers

Provide employment opportunity to youth

 Aid should be used in progress of the nation

 More and more industries should be set up

 These are some of the solution which can contribute in reducing crime rate in Pakistan and will paved the way for progress and development of the country.

  5. Sami Ahmad kalya says:

    one thing we must remember that we cannot end crimes but we reduce it at minimum level.
    1 only education can reduce the crime.
    2 we should try to end punjabi film culture in many villages it is the basic reason of crime.
    3 every should give chance according to his ability.
    4 it is the duty of government that illegal weapons must get back .
    5 fair trail system can also reduce crimes

  6. Malik Tariq says:

    I think we should focus on the root causes leading to organised crimes. Non availability of oppertunities, poor governance and gradual decline in social boundage are some of the causes.

    before a decent learning curve can be designed(brake the law pay the price)a
    few things must my oppinion fredom of speach,equality and educations should bcome your gods, women from second class citezenship,allowing them all the freedoms or more than their male counterparts
    WILL achieve an humble start to this positive end.crime always exsists,we all
    learn as we grow how to live without taking from others.outside of that the middle east is under great pressure from the “west”,seen as exploitable region,
    and once you solve some of your internal problems will see that internationally
    the whole area is a reflection of this simple statement;the core feeds on the goal is not to insult or hurt anyone with my words,they are basic
    world system theory models and knowledge is half the battle.

  8. shehzad says:

    political interference is also involved to enhance the crime rate. interealated crimes also help. adoption of bad society by youth is also a reason.

  9. muhammad tayyab sarwar says:

    thanks provide us huge knowledgw about crime

  10. fahimjan says:

    Shortly i would like to say,that the achieviment independence for any nation is may be a difficult may be a difficult process but keeping maintain the independence is more difficult then that for any nation,As for pakistan was and is.Still our nation is howmuch as men vs insects.


  11. fahim jan says:

    And we cant say this, that such as sorts of problems have been finished from our society,they still existance in pakistani society some time as gostscrimes and sometime as miscreants.The fact was that the pakistani nation been fought them as the war b/w good and (khair o shur ke larayi)as when the aadam dwelved and hiva spond who was then the gentel man but atleast the pakistan have been somehow flushout them from the pakistani soils and country.And atleast the crime is facotrized to a team level as miscreants and thier crimes are as robbries,murdereds,dacaitory and kidnappings is being remained on individual basis.and the reason of that that there still some blacksheeps in govt either in oppostion and latter in departments.


  12. fahim jan says:

    And if the pakstani nation wants to survive there is still problems which they has the need to survive.As in pakistan the clash of good and evils was going on and is going on.some how as such as that when the adam dwelved and hiva sponed who was the the gentleman.Such a clash is going in pakistani society b/w the good and evil as (Khair aour shur ka jung)which atleast from pakistani nation and soils have been flushout but with the country as miscreant they are commiting crimes as robbries,murders,dacaitriies,kidnappings as i am going think about it atlast upto a team either upto team stratigiy of them the pakistani nation have been factorized them.


  13. fahim jan says:

    Ya, its true and i am agree with you about the crime in pakistani society all the above which you have been some time i do think about the crimes ratio in pakistan as there may be hardly such a minut on pakistani media in which we don,t watch the news about crime in pakitan and then don’t cross crime scene its a basics reason of crimes in pakistani society.when ever at one of the pakistani channel i usedto watch criminals most wanteds but latter i do think about thats,thats whose criminals are wants to a source of crimes.No one can say that in this whole duration pakistani gov,t and law and order departments have been a tough time against crimes in pakistani society.atleast to be demoralize against crimes such a situation the pakistan nation have survived.But i would like to say a critical situation the pakistani nation have been survived which non of the pakistan standered world nations has be among the world nation at 6th,7th place in depence,whtas type of situation this nation have been survived as just an year before any school or any childrens were not having the surty that they would became safe to thier home after attending the school.Same as nither the govt servant men and women were safe niether the law and order departments nor the citizens related to any sort of bussiness in pakistani society as i know after every hour the pakistani citizens were be thinking of blast at any after any hour such a bad situation is being faced by pakistani nation.And atlast i would appreciate the nation and govt courage who have been came over such critical situation,The law and order department were be must because thier duty was to handle such type probloblems in pakistani society.And thier duty and martyardisms never lasting for country and nation.After a tough situatuation in war against terrerisms or crimes there is still the crimes going on against pakistani nation but thats is remained atlast activity if we watched on daily basis in pakstani society.Bieng from KPK it was such to me.

  14. MOHSIN RAJA says:

    nice topic for me as i m going to research on this topic
    acoording to me the main reason of crime is the furstration of our yputh.poverty comes later.
    POVERTY isn’t the main tool of increasing crime its the oppertunities which are the cause of crimes.
    I m greatly impressed by AMERTYA SEN, and about his ideas of development.SIMPLY according to my less observation there are the capabilities but no oppertunities are the main cause of increasing crime rate.
    when someone want to do something and want to show others but can’t find oppertunities then this situation drives him towards the CRIME.

  15. Ayaz khan says:

    sorry for denying your suggestion about the cause of crimes in Pakistan that is the one which according to you is the financial.i m going against you on the basis of a theory of punishment which is called compensatory which says that financial lack is not in actual the cause of committing crimes.

  16. abdullah says:

    i totaly agree with u what ever is written above this is so true and being pakistanis we should do some thing for our country b coz our country is going down day by day and espacialy the youth should bocome active

  17. Mustapha says:

    Thank you,this a good topic to be address by Pakistani government and stop being a stooge to the West. Meanwhile there is another Paradigm we should look into which is the Fear of the Crime.Because fear of crime is just a feeling, some might wonder why it is important, particularly as a target for police action. Certainly, crime itself must be more important than mere feelings about crime? And even if fear of crime is of some importance, what can police be expected to do about it?

    One expert who has studied fear of crime for more than 2 decades is Wesley Skogan of Northwestern University. He has also studied and evaluated police strategies, including Chicago’s experiment with community policing beginning in 1993. He makes the case for paying attention to fear of crime as follows (2006: 255):

    Fear of crime is a social and political fact with concrete consequences for big-city life. The costs of fear are both individual and collective. Fear can confine people to their homes, and it undermines their trust in their neighbors and, especially, in their neighbors’ children. Fear is a key “quality of life” issue for many people. Research also indicates that concern about crime has bad consequences for the neighborhoods in which we live. Fear leads to withdrawal from public life, and it undermines informal and organized efforts by the community to control crime and delinquency. It is difficult to organize activities in neighborhoods where people fear their own neighbors. Fear undermines the value of residential property and thus the willingness of owners to maintain it properly. When customers – and even employees – fear entering a commercial area, the viability of businesses located there is threatened.

    Fear reduction efforts should be targeted—the preponderance of the evidence on police effectiveness in general is that more targeted strategies work best. This general principle applies to the specific challenge of reducing fear of crime.


    • one thing should b clear that we cannot end the crime .we can only reduce it.being a student of law in my humble opinion we can reduce the crime by fair trail (every one is equal in the eye of law)
