Security of polio workers
Seems like being a responsible citizen of the country and working towards the betterment of the people isn’t always the best policy. Polio workers whose lives are threatened by the ‘unknown enemy’ leave their houses everyday, scared and harassed. They live with the fear of not knowing whether they will live through the day or not. Innocent Polio volunteers are being targeted and killed in broad daylight and no one wants to take responsibility. Eradication of Polio in Pakistan is extremely vital for the growth of the country and it’s disappointing to see why the government does not take this issue as seriously as it should be taken. Appreciating the polio workers is o’kay, but ensure security of their lives.
The leaders in government need to realize as to why they were elected by the common people? In the first place, to safeguard the lives of the people is a need that isn’t being fulfilled. Government’s highest priority should be the security of the people and especially the polio workers who are working to free Pakistan from this dreadful disease. Ironically, doing good in this country is as difficult as it is easy to do bad. Once accountability in this country is restored, a lot of our problems will get resolved. —Karachi
