Generally the common people of Pakistan are unaware and ignorant of various laws enforced. There are common misconceptions about laws and law enforcing agencies. Sometimes innocent people do what is termed as grave wrong just because of lack of knowledge. General impression of law is very vague and in many cases the concept is totally opposite to what law actually is. Law develops as society evolves. Awareness of law among the members of the society is therefore, main factor for development of society.
People are deceived because of unawareness of law. People do not access government authorities or to the courts because of not being aware of the laws.
