The abuse of public trust has become a standard way of living, but such a corrupt orientation is challenged by other countries of the world, considering that the lack of a nation’s integrity is injurious to trustworthiness. After a careful assessment of a decade data of the nation’s perception index of corruption, the fight against corruption is far from achieving the key goal of appointed agencies. This is dangerous for any society because finding a care for such an epidemic of social disorder, “deprave culture” is harder said than done, and such cannot be overwhelmed with just the pen of the law, but requires a more pragmatic approach, that requires a combination of aggressive enforcement of the law, effective internal control system, and grass root orientation.
There are various schools of thoughts relating unethical practices in societies depending on their value system, but one would argue that a long tradition of corruption is a potential hazard for the fight against corruption, which makes it demanding and uneasy for anti-corrupt agencies without public support.

Government is encouraged to implement preventive methods rather than focusing on fighting the crime of corruption.
