Appreciating the Karachi police

Published: April 13, 2012

KARACHI: The April 10 public transport strike in Karachi resulted in many problems for the people of the city who found it difficult to travel to their offices, education institutions and markets. However, the one positive aspect that resulted from the situation was that Karachi’s police — not exactly famous for helping out the common man in his hour of need — stepped up to the occasion and started a bus service to pick and drop people at their desired locations free of cost. Although only a few dozen people actually made use of this service, this step needs to be appreciated.

I would like to thank the Sindh police on making an effort to reduce the trouble that the people of Karachi face on a daily basis. I would like to see more such positive initiatives from the police that can help build a positive relationship between the public and the department.

    it is easy for us to criticize police or any other department but difficult to appreciate when they do something advantageous
