It is pretty sad that even in this day and age of widely available internet, and verifiable media, people are still happy with just picking up a random headline by their favorite newspaper, and posting it without verifying the headlines, or the content.
The headline is the most misused and abused segment of news, threads, and articles these days.

Dr. Hafeez Pasha said that AT THE END OF THIS FISCAL YEAR in June 2020, 8 million people are expected to be below the poverty line.
And express news has posted the headline stating that 8 million have already fallen below the poverty line.
It may not be embarrassing for social media posters to just reproduce such flagrantly conflicting news/headlines, but that merely highlights the moral dishonesty, lack of integrity, and lack of common sense in our society.

This irresponsible and ignorant behavior is why people rush to lynch someone accused of blasphemy....without even confirming the facts. What exactly is the difference between you and them?

Has inflation gone up in Pakistan? Yes.
Have prices gone up in Pakistan? Yes.
But most of the public understands the reasons behind those. And know that there is a silver lining to this cloud. Add to that, the fact that this statement by Dr. Hafeez Pasha came out a few months ago...not today. Plus, Dr. Pasha's overall assessment of the govt.s policies is positive. What he has outlined in terms of poverty line etc are side effects. (that too is questionable, considering the parameters for poverty-line change according to inflation).

Stupid people think running a financially bankrupt country is a walk in the park. There will be no relief for poor people until 2021 or 2022.

I would like to read the original article by Hafeez Pasha rather than this charba newspaper.
