What happened: Pakistan is going through an economic crisis as soaring prices of different necessities have suddenly risen, and the costs of paper used to make books have also increased. A local publication reported, “After a hike in paper prices, publishers in Lahore have stopped printing books.” 

Details: At the same time, the President of Anjuman-e-Tarjan, Khalid Pervez, in conversation with ARY News, said, “The price of paper has been raised to Rs210 per kg from Rs105.
