All of us are busy in our on a regular basis lives, to maintain tempo with an incessantly on-the-transfer cosmopolitan metropolis — Karachi. We spend a substantial quantity of our time on the street, commuting from one level to a different within the metropolis.
Certainly, it will be unacceptable for anybody if he faces pointless challenges or inconvenience created by these very males who’re there to make sure that legal guidelines are adopted.
The location of policemen within the distance leads one to consider that the security and safety of individuals in that place, is assured. However, don’t you assume the notion has modified in current occasions? It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that one is terrified of them. The second we’re stopped by them in broad daylight or in the midst of the night time, we’re afraid of them. Why? As a consequence of pointless questioning and harassment.
Pictures of these policemen holding the federal government-issued assault weapons abruptly begin haunting you. The arrogance, I might say, you as soon as had of feeling safe is washed away utterly.
Coronary heart-wrenching incidents, together with the killing of a youth in a ‘pretend police encounter’ within the jurisdiction of Gizri Police Station and the gunning down of two youngsters by a SHO in a district of Punjab, who have been enjoying with their toy weapons, are elevating many questions. Such incidents are quickly eradicating the impression that the primary objective of policemen is to protect residents and provides them a way of safety.
Virtually in all places, policemen look like a ‘authorized’ menace, whatever the establishment they belong to. They’re recruited for our safety, however the actuality is, certainly, the opposite means round.
Aren’t we using ourselves hit-males with our personal arduous-earned cash?
In one other incident of assault, an eleven-yr-previous-boy sporting “monster masks” was brutally killed by a personal safety guard in Karachi. Furthermore, quite a lot of financial institution heists have been confirmed to have taken place with the assistance of personal safety guards.
