Topic: Ramadan and High Prices (Part 2/2)

Description: With the increasing prices on basic food items in Pakistan during the month of Ramadan, it has become difficult for people to survive. Everyone is struggling to eat healthy but unfortunately they can’t. There are those who can’t afford to eat Rs.1500 per head in a restaurant, while a majority can’t even buy fruit in this blessed month.

What is the solution to bring down the prices on food items? Should people stop buying things for a month and see if it makes a difference on the sellers?
