This Is What Would Happen If The Smog In Lahore Got Out Of Control

By Syed Saad | 3 Nov, 2016

The smog in Lahore recently became a topic of conversation after visibility reduced to nothing and people started complaining of breathing difficulties. While the cause for the smog is being attributed to India’s large scale crop and coal burning activities, it cannot be disregarded that Pakistan’s own track record with regards to best environmental management practices has been dismal, to say the least.

If we, collectively, don’t start paying heed to these warning signs, this smog in Lahore can spread to other parts of the country.


This is what Pakistan would look like if the smog in Lahore spread everywhere:


Badshahi Mosque, Lahore


Liberty Roundabout, Lahore


Frere Hall, Karachi


Habib Bank Plaza, Karachi

Faisal Mosque, Islamabad


Quaid-e-Azam Residency, Ziarat


Clock Tower, Faisalabad


Tomb of Shah Rukn-e-Alam, Multan


Lansdown Bridge Rohri, Sukkur


Islamia College, Peshawar


As responsible citizens, it is your duty to do your best to curtail practices that contribute to enviornmental hazard and ultimately to climate crises, like the current one being faced by Lahore.

You can also do your part by lodging a complaint to the Pakistan Environmental Protection Agency right here, the body is responsible for measures related to pollution control and environmental protection, in Pakistan.

Instead of playing the blame game , it is time now to take a stand, collectively, for things that should actually matter to us as a country. Here’s to a cleaner and greener home, folks.
