The law enforcement of Pakistan much like any other institution in this country is reeking of corruption and to our dismay, their moral compass was long buried in indifference to the people they swore to protect. However, the folly of several cannot be held against every personnel but with the recent horrific incidents involving the officers have led to a massive outcry that has maligned the reputation of honest and hardworking policemen.
Among several shortcomings of our police forces, another habit that has caused major concern among the citizens is their addiction to drugs. The protectors of this nation are normally not even their right mind to operate. It has been reported that most of them indulge in gutka, naswar, and other harmful drugs.

The order specified the immediate termination of any officer that is addicted to alcohol, opium, gutka, and other chewing-tobacco products. Assitant DIG Police, Junaid Ahmed has circulated the letter order to all SSPs, DIGs and to other heads of various law-enforcing departments. Furthermore, IG Sindh Syed Kaleem Imam has encouraged his subordinates to keep a watchful eye and immediately take strict action against such officers.
They will be served notices and after an independent investigation, will be let go from their duties. Unit heads will be held responsible for not following through if any slip regarding officers still using drugs happen.
This is just a small step towards a much-needed reform within the police force of Pakistan. After the brutal murder of Salahuddin under police custody, the monstrous face of the police has been unveiled.
