UNFPA [United Nations Population Fund] has just announced that Pakistan is much more ahead of India in terms of literacy rate. That is some mind-blowing news! For some reason this wasn't much surprising. For nation with a mentality that education a MUST and that it's not only for a good career but to survive in this world, this news was bound to come. Anyway lets get on with some statistics: according to the report 32.3% male population over the age of 15 are literate in Pakistan, while in India only 23.1% are literate [over 15 of course]. That's still kind of low for a male dominated society but Inshallah it will improve in the future. Now for the ladies: In Pakistan 60.4% of the female population that is over 15 is literate in Pakistan, while in India only 45.5% are literate. You go girls!
