Corruption is the absence of honesty and virtue. Usually, the society void of law and order is a corrupt society. In such societies, people do not do their duties well and try to work for their personal benefits. Corrupt people do not abide by laws and adopt evil means to get their aims. They discard morality and good manners. The society where such people are in majority is called corrupt society. These people cause many evils in society. No measures can bring good fruit unless corruption is uprooted. Corruption is a flea that sucks the blood of the nation and the country.

The most obvious cause of corruption is ignorance. In Pakistan a large number of people are ignorant. They do not know their rights and duties. They show no interest in national activities because they do not understand them. They have no sense to elect honest representatives. As a result, corrupt people come to the throne. These representatives instead of working for the welfare of society, struggle for their own interest. They do not bother to adopt proper means to get their ends. Rather they adopt corrupt means to get their objectives. Therefore corruption prevails in society.

The unequal distribution of wealth is another cause of corruption. In Islamic society, a tax i.e. Zakat is taken from the rich and is given to the poor. In the great days of Islam, there was no one so poor as to receive Zakat. Therefore, the money of Zakat was spent on the works of public welfare. Now people do not pay Zakat and alms. And that has resulted in an unequal distribution of wealth.
