Illiteracy breeds poverty By ‘Unzila Huda’

When politicians rob, steal and siphon wealth out of the country, inflation takes place. The question is not poverty but illiteracy. Education is more important than food because education can improve the future of the coming generations. People sleep hungry in America also, Steve Job used to sleep on floor in the college and sell coke cans to buy food. He would walk miles every Thursday to eat free food given in Hindu Shrine. It’s ironically in Pakistan because there is illiteracy in the nation; people don’t use the right to vote intelligently, leading to poor choice of leaders who don’t care about improving the deplorable condition of the poor.
