This is a wonderful job for restoration of peace in the city, while handling major issues, the minor ones have been overlooked which led to increase in street crimes. In cities like Karachi, one cannot find a person without a story of snatching a cell phone or whooping cash.
Everyday street crimes headlines appear in the news, but, sadly, no efforts have been created to overcome this loathsome issue. According to some researches, the people who commit such crimes are simple native looking souls who are tired of prolonged poverty and joblessness and do indulge in such activities. The main reason for this is the widening difference between rich and poor. In the past the rich people helped or cared for the poor people, which created a strong bond between the two classes but, unfortunately, the bond has weakened and situation is reversed. The ethical values seem to have faded away. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer day by day.
In fact, the only way to end up these crimes, we ought to educate our younger generations because an educated and literate person can take the country to progress while parents have to spend more time with their children telling them about the disadvantages and ominous effects of these crimes. Even though, the situation of Karachi pertaining to its peace, security and stability has significantly improved over the past months, however, true stability will be seen when the city’s roads will become safe for the common man.
