The impetus of expeditiously growing industrialization and its subsequent hazardous effects on human beings foists literary think tanks to tackle this issue meticulously.  Ecological scientists anticipate that if current annihilating trends and strategies of environmental disaster are not dealt assiduously, sooner or later, the present society will be in horrible trouble. Dystopian fiction acts as a gruesome reminder in this regard as it arouses environmental issues and its detrimental effects on human being in futuristic perspective.

Keywords: Environment, Annihilation, Religion, Pollution, Human Civilization.
