#BoycottFruits Campaign Launched in Karachi, Announces Social Activist

The residents of the many cities of Pakistan including Karachi, Rawalpindi and Islamabad have started the ‘Fruit Boycott Campaign’ due to skyrocketing prices.

One of the most fortunate and rewarding months in the Islamic calendar is Ramadan. In the month of Ramadan, millions of Pakistanis are struggling to put food on the table amid one of the country’s worst economic crises.

According to the most recent data provided by the Pakistan Department of Statistics on March 1, inflation this month spiked to 31.5 percent, its highest level since 1974.

Activists have urged the public in the country to take part in their large-scale campaign against the high costs of fruits through their social media campaign. When government officials failed to monitor any market to stop profiteers and hoarders, the inflation of fruits was “man-made.”

Few people first showed interest in the initiative, but a lot of people joined in once the news spread widely on social media.
