Causes of Corruption:
Corruption is a curse which spoils the society and undermines its roots. It became the cause of destabilization and anxiety. If we do not address corruption, it can bring unimaginable destruction. As a result the whole fabric of the nation will be collapsed. But can we do away with it? Let us discuss its root and causes of corruption, in the first place. Then, we will suggest some remedial measures to eradicate it.
First of all, wrong policies of the government are the causes of corruption. The direction of polices are not right. These policies support and serve the interests of the corrupt people.
Secondly, recruitment in government departments is not done on merit. Bribery and nepotism are order of the day. So, government officials earn by fair means or foul.
Thirdly, moral bankruptcy of the people become the causes of corruption. It leads us to poverty, inflation, unemployment, bribery, dearness, smuggling and so many other social evils. People do not follow the teaching of Islam. That is why, they are faced with such problem and evils.
After knowing and diagnosing the root causes of corruption. We can suggest some steps to eradicate it. For this purpose, the people and policy-makers must join hands. First of all, we are to follow the teaching of Islam. If we follow these teachings, we will be able to uproot the problems like corruption, poverty, inflation, unemployment, bribery, dearness, smuggling and so many other social evils. Secondly merit should be strictly followed while recruitment in government departments. The elite should also feel their responsibility. And lastly, education and awareness can be the best weapons to combat corruption.
The bottom line of the discussion is that corruption is a major cause of anxiety in the society. If we do not take remedial steps to abolish it. This can be the cause of horrible results. If we abolish the dire problems of corruption, we can make Pakistan strong and stable. Corruption free society is the first condition for a modern state. And modern Pakistan should absolutely be free from corruption.
