Most certainly, events like this in such times are quite miserable. At this time, the poverty-stricken are in dire need of our charities. The question nonetheless rises, where will these people go, when law enforcers responsible for taking care of them are exploiting this situation.
Endless suffering for the poor
A few days back, during one of the Ehsaas cash distribution programs in Faisalabad, female police constables were recorded thrashing poor women. They kicked, slapped and misbehaved with women who were there waiting to get the cash through the Ehsaas program. Ironically, one female constable justified her actions to the reporter, saying, “It is for their own benefit.”
