    After seeing the above figures, it can be said that Pakistan does not deserve to stand near about India either in terms of per capita income, Gross Domestic Product, foreign exchange reserve or military strength. Pakistan is far behind in terms of above mentioned parameters. The main reason behind the pitiable condition of Pakistan is that it wastes its resources in encouraging terrorism against India. Due to the bad results of terrorism the economy of Pakistan is not going on the path of development but it is leading towards the path of destruction.
