The Pakistani Rupee fell to a record low as the Central Bank continues to loosen its controls over the currency. According to Bloomberg, the Rupee has been the worst performing currency across the world since last Friday and suffered losses for the past three days.

The Rupee hit a four year low as the State Bank devalued it in a bid to boost economic growth. Keeping the nitty gritty of our economy aside, the people were obviously had a lot to say.


Naturally, several Pakistanis were worried about the state of our economy in view of the Pakistani Rupee becoming the lowest ranked currency
