Law enforcement in our country is not impressively active. The current state of Pakistan, marked with increasing crime rate, is a nightmare for the citizens. The stories of murders, rapes, robberies, street crimes are now not new for our ears. There was a time when such incidents were considered heinous and the escape of the criminals was not a piece of cake.
Looting someone and then running away was not easy, neither was gunning someone down. All these atrocities seem to have increased sharply on the streets of Karachi especially. A few days back, I happened to come across a wicked scenario in Hyderi when two men riding on a bike came and shot a person dead who was coming out of the cell of cash dispenser machine.
Who know who were they or why did they kill him. All I know is that they walked scot-free amid dozens of people and hardly feared of getting caught, such a shame for our police who fails to punish such criminals.
Since the commencement of Ramadan is almost on its verge, the threat of danger is on its verge too. I, representing the voice of millions of the citizens request the government to initiate steps that help spread tranquility in this holy month of Ramadan. High-alert security should be established, importantly on the venues like Masajid and Madarsas.
During the time of Sehr and Iftar, security officials should remain vigilant to counter any attack. The higher authorities should take measures to shun every attempt that could be taken by the criminals or militants to cause unrest because we surely don’t want a month of blessings and bliss to become a month of sorrow and anguish.
