Govt and law enforcers inaction

Published Dec 22, 2012 11:07pm

IT is sad and heartbreaking that terrorists have attacked women anti-polio workers serving the noble cause of humanity by participating in WHO polio eradication campaign.

Killing such people who are performing a great national service and cause of humanity is shameful. As this campaign has been stopped, it can handicap children in the future.

This has not happened for the first time. There were many such attacks before as well. I don’t know if the Taliban are not doing it then who is responsible for this brutality?

Where our law-enforcement and intelligence agencies? Being aware of such past attacks and threats, why have not they prepared any plan? What our federal and provincial governments and those who matter are doing in this regard?

What they are waiting for? Will they not move unless the chief justice takes a notice of this situation?

Killing of an innocent person serving the humanity means killing of the entire mankind. I really don’t know why a human life does not matter for all those who matter? Also, I don’t know what will happen to us as a nation at the end of the day. I request the authorities concerned to have some fear of God and take measures to protect the lives of Pakistanis.

Citizens feel safe in thinking that their law enforcers are potent; and have the potency to protect them, and are certainly not impotent.

......I don?t know what will happen to us as a nation at the end of the day.......... When corruption becomes the core characteristic of the rulers and the ruled, history is the witness, that nation soon sleep walks to its doom. .
