THIS is to commend your editorial ‘Tax evaders’ (Aug 25). This was a brilliant depiction of the ground reality in the country.

Very succinctly put, the greatest beneficiaries of the system are the ones who do not contribute their share to the national exchequer and instead of feeling embarrassed they whine the most and demand an even greater share from the national economy at the cost of the people.

Keep up the struggle against the dishonest wealthy elite who gobble most resources disproportionately and hardly leave anything for the people.

Fully agree with you. I also think that in order to facilitate change, we should support political parties such as PTI who have made taxation reforms as one of the top five priorities of their economic manifesto.

In the first place, the tax evaders will join hands to battle against PTI and not let them get in to Power. Let's hope they honour their commitment, if they succeed.
