Land Grabbing in Pakistan

Posted by: IIPS Category: Videos Comments: 0

Land grabbing is the acquisition of large tracts of land for the purpose of enforcing a monoculture that threatens the sovereignty of the local community. Cases of land grabbing have been making headlines in Pakistan and government officials are increasingly getting concerned.
Land grabbing promotes injustice and inequality for the indigenous community as rights over the use of land are taken away from the locals. It has become a common phenomenon in several parts of Pakistan where feudal lords, large corporations, and shadow governments commit to such practices.
