Brain drain... By M. Ahmad

29 January, 2014

There were times when doctors, engineers and people from other professions would leave the country for the sake of employment or to create new opportunities for themselves in search of a better future. Some of these people never came back to Pakistan while others decided to return in order to serve their country. Today, people do not want to leave Pakistan for lack of opportunities only. People want to flee this country because they are forced to do so.

Dr Nikhat Iftikhar, a young poetess, writer, speaker and doctor of course, had to leave the country to save the lives of her family. She became a victim of sectarian violence, was attacked but luckily survived. These are not good signs for Pakistan and its future. We are already in dearth of fine, logical and developed minds and character.
