    Actually problem is not lies in main city but in dehaat etc which are un educated and curse for Pakistan becauuse of their jahalat. In dehat women works for men feed them and they enjoy doesnt work. I am telling this because my cook who is from punjab tell me this. They just know how to make women pregnent and then even she has to work and save money for her operation.

    Dont kknow why punjab is like this for years and no one take action against this.

    There will be a sharp rise in miswak violence then.

    Education alone will not help. Marshal khans killers were university students and so was that idiot who shot his principal dead in Mardan because he was marked absent. In the past 2 years we've gained control over terrorism but we now face an even bigger threat of radicalism which is mainly done in colleges and universities. What we need is complete social reform.
