Economy and demographics

Hub is economically one of the largest industrial cities in Balochistan. In terms of demographics, the ethnicity of the residents is mainly composed of Brahwi, Baloch, Lasi, Sindhi, Pukhtons and Muhajirs alongwith small numbers of Punjabi. The majority of the population is Muslim, while Hindus and Christians are in minority. Day by day, Hub is emerging as a commercial centre of the district as the Bazaars are getting rich with advance varieties and markets as well. Increased commercialization in this area has lead to many social, political and hygienic problems. Worst state of roads and streets in area has made the everyday life more difficult. Roads are too busy as the area serves as a hub between Balochistan and Karachi, that is one of the main reasons behind the lack development in this area. Presence of political parties usually lead to bad law and order situations that affects the life and commerce in many ways declining the economy of country to certain extent.
