SAZAIN SHA­KEEL

Af­ter many years of in­de­pen­dence where ev­ery­thing is go­ing for­ward rapidly but our roads are still in­fested with beg­gars. Beg­ging has now be­come a mafia where healthy and stout beg and in­stead of work­ing they pre­fer to beg. They are all over the city, there is no such sig­nal, mar­ket place, rail­ways where they are not loot­ing from pub­lic.

When they spot some for­eign­ers, they quickly gather around them and start forc­ing them. What pic­ture of our coun­try are we show­ing? Nowa­days, beg­ging is the eas­i­est and the quick­est way to earn money. Nar­rated Ab­dul­lah bin Umar(RA): The Prophet (PBUH) said: “A man keeps on ask­ing oth­ers for some­thing, till he comes on the ‘Day of Res­ur­rec­tion’ hav­ing no flesh on his face” —Via email
