Junaid Akram’s recent twitter post reflects the issue of lack of reading culture in Pakistan

Junaid Akram is a Pakistani Dubai-based comedian and social commentator who has a huge online following. He often posts videos about his political and social arguments and observations.

He previously posted on his facebook account that he will be getting those books which are not available in Pakistan from Dubai for free and as a gift to Pakistan.

However, it seems, people were not that interested in picking up those books and were only interested in ordering them. Junaid’s tweet reveals to us what happened next:

Apparently, it has been nine days and people still haven’t shown up to pick up the books they asked him to bring.

Junaid further commented on the situation:

His disappointment is indeed real because it is in fact true that reading helps in developing a more intellectual and culturally strong society.
