The whole world including Pakistan is witnessing chaos due to COVID-19. Countries are making efforts to hamper the contagious pandemic. Recently, the Sindh government imposed a lockdown. Some heartening images and videos from Karachi are going viral on social media after the shutdown of the city.
Recently, Shanza Faiq, a civil servant of the foreign service of Pakistan on her official twitter handle shared some amusing pictures of the Sindh Police.
Heartening images coming out of Karachi. Extremely proud of our police and the bold actions being taken by the Sindh govt.
Please stay indoors and exercise caution. Please do not let the service of these brave men go to waste. pic.twitter.com/U8mni56ZtV

The pictures depict some eight policemen holding placards, sharing a rousing message. Moreover, the placards say, “Remember, It’s Care For You, Not Curfew.” Sweet, isn’t it?
In the current uncertain scenario, the Sindh police certainly brought smiles on many faces despite the grammatical and structural issues. The lockdown in Sindh was launched last night after the province felt it difficult to deal with the increasing number of corona cases.
The picture stirred joy and fun among the masses
People on social media platforms reacted joyously to the picture of the Sindh Police. Moreover, many admired them while others could not make a sense out of the message on the placards.
HAHA! yes it is quite perplexing
It took me a solid 5 minutes to figure out what order to read the words in

If You Don’t take the Lockdown Seriously!
Day-1 of the lockdown in Karachi brought several reactions on social media. One viral video exhibits how the police are treating those who ignored the lockdown.
First prey of “Fauji Chiter” in the streets of Karachi. 😂❤️

The guy in the video must have thought that the lockdown is just a random exercise and nothing serious. However, after getting beaten by the police, he should have known the seriousness of it.
Credit goes to the law enforcement officials in Sindh, particularly in Karachi, for establishing a successful lockdown in the city. It was certainly not easy.
