Drugs word placed with Schools; really shocked me.
Drugs addiction is the problem of whole World. But in
Pakistan according to Survey most drug abusers are below the age of 24. It is
alarming for Pakistan and destructive for the Future; as the Future generation
is at the verge of destruction and disturbing the nation as whole.
In October 2016, an NGO reported that in leading private
schools of Islamabad about 53% students are addicted to different kinds of
Then another survey had been taken included 10 schools and 2
universities from Lahore unveiled that 57 percent of students reported the use

According to a UN report, almost 7.6 million drug addicts in
Pakistan: 78% male and 22% female. According to this survey Pakistan is palced

Why Drug Culture is Prevailing in Our Society?
1. Our kids lack proper attention at
Our kids taking influence from social
media or entertainement industry
Moral Crisis – Rat Race or Social
Lack of Sports Activities
5. Easy availability of
Lack of Government interests and
As the modern World requirement has been changed; our kids
also have to do lot of things from Class work to home work, and then from
family to social network. They feel lot of stress to engage themselves but when
they can’t balance their activities that stress converted into anxiety. On
other side to run the family expenses parents have to do extra hours work and
can’t give enough attention to their kids to entertain or listen their emotions
for grooming. In return kids knock other doors to coup with this anxiety and
emotional stress and that is most of time intake of drugs.
Social media has become the strong weapon to influence all
genre of people. Our kids are also taking influence by it. You find slogans to
attract the teenagers that “If you use drugs then Cool, if you don’t
then uncool” and “Stay in drugs; don’t do school
kids”. Such slogans penetrated into fresh brain and they begins
taking drugs as a fun time.
Not only the parents are taking the pressure of
class-division in our society but the kids too. Such type of pressure results
in moral crisis. Everybody is tried his/her best to achieve or maintain status-quo.
This competition is also become the source of less-communication between kids
and their parents. The rat race has been taken on priority at the cost of
ethical, social and justified parents responsibility for their kids.
You just click, the delivery is at your home door. Online
availability of drugs is also made easy; dealers can easily approach the
teen-agers by offering services.
Extra-curricular activities are the bright and enegetic side
for the utilization of the teen-agers energy. But in Pakistan there is lack of
such activities in Schools and colleges as the best education is provided by
private institutes, and private institutes buildings are not so big to provide
grounds for their students to play. Read, Read and Read is not the complete
knowledge Run, Push, Fight, Fall and Fly by doing Physical activities is the
opening of balance educational environment. But in Pakistan there is dearth of
playing grounds in Schools, Colleges or at Public places; it means our
goveremnt and private institutes are not determined to provide our kids and
teen-agers healthy environment.
Students spends lot of time at schools, and parents paid
heavy fees for their Kids education. Drug culture is not only the result of
parents less attention for their kids but it is also taken as the
irresponisibility on institutes end. Teachers and School administration are not
paying proper attention to stop this ruthless prevailing of drug culture.
The several drugs names are marijuana, Hashish, Heroin,
Opium and Cocaine. There are lot of sub-types of these illegal drugs are
available. These are the expensive drugs which are available in Lahore and
Islamabad Schools, colleges inside and outside premises. But no one is paying
attention to our future generation safety.
Government and institutes should take proper measures to stop this ruthless crime from prevailing in our society and securing our next generation from such dark future. For the being of safe nation; government must declare emergency to fight against this evil.
