A social counsel that shows the recognition of a specific group which is descended from the same predecessors is called ethnicity while political development is the continuous decrease of ethnic, social, and religious pressure and components. This topic is vital because of subverting tendencies of the circumstances that in reality endanger the survival of the minority groups in Punjab and therefore hampers significant political development. The governments haven't yielded any efficacious outcomes in spite of elucidation that has been consistently provided. Subsequently, they need to search for a more practical alternative by focusing on the divisions that are present in ethnic societies.
