I want to express my extreme dissatisfaction towards the problem of litter amalgamation in Northern areas of Pakistan.
On 25th July 2019, I was standing in khunjerab pass frowning at the heap of trash which was thrown adjacent to the trashcan.No one could have ever imagined seeing such an awful scene at the height of 4693 metres . where it is almost impossible to breath for some people. For the first time in my life I was completely blown away with how much fidelity and sense of belonging Pakistani people have for their land.
Furthermore, Attabad lake which is one of the most mesmerizing and beautiful lakes of Pakistan has also been left to rack and ruin.
With great disappointment, I would have to admit that Throwing litter (plastic bottles, wrappers, pampers, etc) everywhere has become a mannerism of our society. As much as this norm has fully contributed to polluting our cities if proper decisive actions are not taken we will bring ugliness to the northern areas of Pakistan. And soon the tourism industry for which the stakes are high will be demolished.
Furthermore, the unfortunate country of Pakistan and its people will be left empty-handed.
Consequently, we should join our hands together and tackle the issue with great care. Because leaving this problem unsolved only depicts the laziness and carelessness of our higher authorities. Secondly, the copious amount of diseases are caused due to litter accumulation. If trash collects water it will provide misquotes a place to harbor.which spreads malaria. It also has adverse effects on wildlife. Similarly, it is also not pleasing to eyes which will decrease our local tourism in the near future. The main solution that I can see to overcome this problem is to enforce liter laws and impose a heavy fine on people who commit this unpleasant act.
