Islamabad, July 28 (ANI): Pakistan would be the fourth most populated country in the world in 2050 if its population continues to grow with the current rate, The United Nations Population Division has said.

Pakistan would add another 335 million people to its current population and would thus overtake Brazil and Indonesia as the world's fourth most populated nation in the coming 40 years.

The United Nations has expressed serious concerns over Pakistan's rapidly increasing population.

"How can Pakistan support a population that size with the required jobs, education, healthcare? It can't do so right now with the population it has," The Daily Times quoted Daniel Baker, head of the UN Family Planning Association in Pakistan, as saying. (ANI)
