This research is based on two case studies, Bahria Town and Gujjar Nullah. The common element in both case studies is encroachment. Gujjar Nullah is an encroachment belonging to the lower class and Bahria Town is an encroachment done by the upper class. The purpose of this study is to analyze the role of class in encroachment. In this research, the role of class in encroachment is only analyzed in its portrayal in print media. Articles written on both case studies by major media groups are studied and then themes emerging from articles on both case studies are compared. The comparison is done to see if there is any difference in the portrayal of encroachment based on class.

Previously, researches have been done to prove the role of class in the process of encroachment. This research has added another domain where the role of class can be observed. Besides, this research can also become the basis for future researches, where a similar method can be used. Especially in the case of the judiciary, legal documents can be analyzed to see if the class is influencing the judiciary in any manner.
