Omair Ayaz Risālpur Pakistan
Our Nation Delimma
I never Published an Article but the following heart-wrenching Incident forced me to do so which took place yesterday at Rahim Yar Khan Pakistan, where a father hanged his son because he wouldn't stop crying due to hunger while his wife left him few days back when he failed to provide them food to survive due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic. We said that a father is nothing without his son but what will be the condition of that father when he tied rope around a neck of his his own child knowing that he is going to kill him. I can just feel pain and anguish. Nothing else.. Why? Because we are equally responsible for all this.
How many students are studying in different universities of Pakistan but how many know that many employees working there are on daily wages?
I was member of my university hostel mess management committee for the last two years but just two months back i came to know that some waiters and dish washers are working there on daily wages for the last 10 to 15 years. Some of them have school going kids and living on rent. They are waiting for their monthly salary which is not more than 15,000pkr ($100).
When we the students busy praying for our Vacations they are worried about cut-off from their salaries due to those Vacations.
But unfortunately we'll do nothing neither our leaders will. We as a Nation Failed in this and we didn't have any effective strategies.
What will they do now when no one is there to give them job or provide them something to eat for their survival?
We as a Muslims also failed because we forget advices of our Heroes like Hazrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab said if a dog dies hungry on the banks of the River Euphrates, Umar will be responsible for dereliction of duty. Hence we and our Leaders are Responsible for all this.
