Street beg­gars in Karachi

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - UROOJ FA­TIMA.

I want to draw the at­ten­tion of con­cerned au­thor­i­ties Karachi Metropoli­tan Car­po­ra­tion to­wards the street beg­gars in the city, as the chil­dren and young girls start beg­ging on roads, es­pe­cially on traf­fic sig­nals, but now the men­ace has spread over to the streets and all pub­lic places. On be­ing, un­der the povert line, the peo­ple find it as an easy way of earn­ing their liv­ing by beg­ging in­stead of do­ing any work. They want to have ev­ery­thing that they see oth­ers pos­sess­ing, no mat­ter how they get it. But it has be­come a pro­fes­sion in Karachi and in this way street crimes are also in­creas­ing due to these beg­gars.

Mostly young beg­gars are in­volved in drug traf­fick­ing which is also dan­ger­ous for the future of our coun­try. It is the need of the day that the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties should take some ef­fec­tive and strict steps to con­trol the prob­lem of street beg­gars in Karachi. —Karachi
