Some Good Men.

KARACHI, Dec 12: PIA Chairman Tariq Kirmani gave away on Tuesday cash prizes of Rs5,000 each to two PIA security guards in recognition of their honesty and sense of responsibility.
According to a spokesman for the airline, security guard Farhat Jawaid found a purse containing valuables worth Rs200,000 and Rs30,000 in cash while performing search of flight PK-390 on September 4.
He immediately handed over the purse to airline authorities who returned it to its owner Ms. Farzana, a member of the National Assembly.
The second recipient of the cash award was security guard Shahid Ali, who was on deputation with Singapore Airlines.
During search on August 9, Shahid Ali found Rs200,000 which he handed over to the Singapore Airline authorities.

After reading this story, I realized that there are still some good men in our society and its only because of them that the world makes a little bit sense. I salute these men.

    Too bad they only got 5000 each. That is why there aren’t hardly any good men left.

    Gibran, I too believe that they should award them at least equal amount of money to encourage honest behavior.

    they could award them some other benifits beside the monetary benefit i.e. maybe free quality education for their kids….

    May Allah Almighty award such men in the afterlife and help them in this world so that they can spread the ideology and nurture more of their kind.

    I don’t quite see the big deal with this. It’s not like those security guards gave Rs 200,000 out of their own pockets, its money they found whcih they didnt keep. Keeping that money wouldve made them a thief.

    I’m an accountant and handle other peoples money on a daily basis. Just because I don’t steal doesn’t make me a hero. I know I sound like a dog here, but come on lets atleast expect people to do what theyre paid for!

    Gm, thats because our standards have gone so down :/ that if somebody does the right job effectively & honestly, its considered a good deed.

    Both GM and Sufi are right in their last posts. We give beat our drums the moment we spot anyone doing his/her job. Something that should be expected of them to do in the first place.

    I think Honesty should NOT have a price tag on it.

    On the other hand it has been pointed out above that it is a rare occurrence in our society/nation, hence the hala baloo.

    Thank you gurads – for your honesty. Well Done.

    BOZZ : Thank for saying what i intended to. Honesty is supposed to be by default from these men.
    Having said that in our case and on our land these men sure need to be appreciated, money or otherwise.

    Yes guys you’re right, honesty should not come with a price tag, I mean sure in a country where we live such instances are extremely rare and maybe this could encourage other to follow suite. Here, I also believe that in the first case where the guard returned the bag which belonged to an government ‘celebrity’ the PIA authorities could have been in grave danger had they any remote intention of keeping the lady MNA’s bag…this was to happen and had it been any other commoner, the bag would had been history. The PIA staff would gladly and equally distributed the amount…the failed state that we live in, these instances are not uncommon.
