The youth dependency ratio is about 54.7 % where there the dependency ratios of elders are 7.1 %. There is big difference in ratio because the life expectancy of an average Pakistani is about 65.4 years. So there aren’t a lot of elderly people. 28

It started when the majority Sunni attacked the minority Shia and the Shia retaliated and has taken a deadly shape. Sipah-e-Sahaba, a banned group in Pakistan, was made by Sunni Muslims to make Pakistan a Sunni Muslim majority state. Tehrik-e-Jafria was made by the minority Shia Muslims in Pakistan.
