This paper argues that political social, and economic inequality have been a major source of violence, separatist movements and civil wars in the Pakistani society. It will highlight strong evidence that inequality causes a higher rate of social depression, crimes and even extremism in some countries. A high degree of inequality might be socially undesirable for any number of reasons, but that it causes violent crime is far from proven. This paper examines the aftereffects of political inequality in Pakistan. Inequality brings poverty, and poverty is considered the mother of all evils in society
Inequality promotes sectarianism, ethnocentricity and fundamentalism. East Pakistan separated from West Pakistan due to inequality and Balochistan and Sind (two units of Pakistan) have been demanding equal rights from the government. Research will find remedy and recommendation for promoting equality and peace in future.
