Irregularities around the city…
I am starting a new series where I will post things that we spot on a day to day basis, that dont seem right. A lot of people see things that should not be happening but we usually end up turning our eyes away from it. In order to improve the country, it is important that we keep an eye out for people who seem to be breaking the law and using unfair methods. If we keep highlighting these things in the media then the authorities are forced to look at correcting themselves. If we turn a blind eye, we give more freedom for corruption to flourish.
With this series, I will provide a platform for you to help change things in Karachi for the better. In the rapidly upcoming tradition of citizen journalism, I will keep this series open to everyone. Since it is our responsibility to make our city a better place, you can go do your own reporting and send me your photos/videos. I will publish a good selection every week for the benefit of the readers (Submission guidelines are at the end of the post).
I saw this stuffed Ibex being transported to somebody’s house near Khyaban-e-Ittehad a few days ago. I am not sure if these animals have a protected or endangered status within Pakistan. If it is, than this guy was clearly doing illegal stuff.
These policemen drove up on their bike all of a sudden, snatched the weighing scales of these two poor fruit peddlars, and rode off. The fruit peddlers tried to argue, but seemed more shocked at what had happened. Would this be a case of high handedness by the police towards the poorer members of society? I believe the fruit peddlers had a right to be warned first if they were doing something illegal, rather than just being snatched off of their hard-earned possessions.
