Due to the rising costs, citizens of numerous Pakistani cities, including Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Islamabad, have initiated the “Fruit Boycott Movement.”
Ramadan is one of the luckiest and most fruitful months in the Islamic calendar. Millions of Pakistanis are struggling to put food on the table during Ramadan due to one of the worst economic crises the nation has ever experienced.
The Pakistan Department of Statistics released its most recent data on March 1 showing that inflation this month soared to 31.5 percent, its highest level since 1974.
With their social media campaign, activists have asked the nation’s population to take part in their extensive campaign against the excessive prices of fruits. The inflation of fruits was “man-made” because government officials neglected to monitor any market to thwart profiteers and hoarders.
A small number of people initially expressed interest in the campaign, but many more joined as the news became widely known on social media.
