Sir: Over-population is one of the biggest emerging problems, especially of Asian countries. The bar graph of my country’s population is drastically going up with the passage of time.Google showed that in 2018, Pakistan shared 2.63 percent of world population. Overpopulation is an alarming situation for our earth. Child labor, reduction in mortality rates, poverty and immigration are some leading causes of overpopulation. Overpopulation is creating many problems for human beings. Overpopulation is effecting our environment by setting pressure on resources. Consumption of fossil fuels, usage of water and quantity of food is increases day by day. More population means, more need of food, water, land and fuel. Overpopulation is cause of deforestation and deforestation cause global warming. Our resources are decreasing drastically. It’s time to do something. Government should promote women empowerment, education, family-planning and spread awareness among people. In this way, overpopulation can be controlled.NIMRA ANJUM FaisalabadPublished in Daily Times, December 14th 2018.
