Pakistan's image as civilized society has been tarnished in recent years because of several factors. One of the factor had been human organ ["Kidneys"] trade which has shifted from India to Pakistan.
Media, in particular had gone to the extent of labeling it as shifting of "Kidney Bazar", "Bombay Bazar" from India to Lahore and Islamabad. We as a nation have failed to promulgate cadaveric law.
