Happy & contented people!

Yesterday we had to visit the "Slums" to run a campaign "Awareness about Iron deficiency in women"  for our project "Development support Communication".We were given the task of educating those women who normally earn their livelihood by working in home to home.

When we first entered in the area where they had their camps, to be honest we all were reluctant to go inside. There was no sense of hygiene among people and their kids had some weird diseases which could be a great hindrance for our awareness campaign.Finally we managed to overcome over reluctance and asked few questions which showed that they are deprived of the basic necessities of life, which was also obvious from their lifestyle. I was feeling pity but at the same time those poor,illiterate people who are like an
extra load over Pakistan's economy gave me a lesson. I realized that where the world is being materialistic and a big fight between haves and haves not has started, these people who even lack proper two meals per day , clothing and shelter are happy with what they have. Therefore, you will always find a smile on their lips and a sparkle in their eyes.Not all can recognize these both elements, but those who have a sensitive heart towards the problem of our society.

Though they are contented with what they have, but isn't it the duty of government to care for its people? whats their fault?If one realizes, they contribute most to the workforce of Pakistan.They are also equally the citizens of Pakistan like me &  like you, then why are they deprived of every happiness?
They have no concern if the world has got innumerable achievements in the field of I.T, It doesn't matter to them that the man has landed on to the moon.These simple people just question for a two times meal.

Its a matter of thought,that  by providing them with proper education(at least basic),hygiene & sanitation and the nutrients necessary for the health  we can transform this huge number of Pakistan's population into a meaningful workforce of Pakistan.In western countries, stipends are fixed for such poor families than why not it is possible in Pakistan?Moreover , in west ,you can sue your mother's gynecologist if at your birth your mother's body was deficient in Iron.On the contrary here in Pakistan, we all know what is the situation. This all is the matter of "Awareness" which matters most...

We can change our Pakistan, we can make Pakistan a better place to live, a heaven on Earth infact- we just need to think over it sincerely~

A very beautiful, informative and sensational post.

Reebz, actually this is the matter of concern for all of us. If our Government, like many other cases, is neglecting this one too, then this should be a task for people who want to change this situation, with unity, faith and discipline and proper planing our public sector can also improve the living conditions of these ultra poor ones.

The need is for just an initiative.

Karachi, well whole pakistan is full of such people. more than 30% are living below poverty line. No one is responsible but us.

Yeah I agree with u Areeba that these people are poor but they don't have the sense of cleanness..I think cleaning there houses won't cost them much.
And one more thing around 50% of thses slum do have more money than the middle class but there life style is slumms.I have seen their wedding & stuff they tend to spend more than most of the middle classes could even imagine of.I think these people need awareness more than money and support.

Any ways nice way of imaging these slums.Good job ReeBz.

Awareness is the key, we cannot be termed as aware and conscientious humans if we fail to see misery around us and then do nothing. Bringing up these social issues for awareness and eradication of poverty, lack of education and poor environment must be a common denominator for all who stands for making this world a place to live for us and our coming generations-a responsibility from which we can’t flinch ,as this concerns each one of us directly. We have to change this situation as nobody else will come from elsewhere to put this in order and place.

Asalamoalaikum. You must be well aware of who Zaid Hamid is and due to the fastly-growing conflict between his fans and those against him, all of you would be aware of the charge against him, he is accused of being the Right hand (Khalifa) of a false prophet Yousuf Ali a.k.a Yousuf Kazzab. But Zaid Hamid keeps on justifying Yousuf KAzab as a sufi and keeps on supporting him and calling him innocent.

So the Big question which appears in every mind is who is right and who is wrong? What is the truth and What is the lie? Was Yousuf innocent as Zaid claims? or Was he purely guilty? Are the hands of Zaid Hamid clear? or are they not? What are proves against Yousuf/Zaid? and Which ones are in his favour? Is alone Zaid Hamid right? or are so many honorable people/Ulemas/religious institutes wrong? Is Zaid a friend or a foe? Should he be followed? or should he be condemned?

In this regard, I have gathered up some facts and have compiled them in a single page for general public view. Kindly spare some time and see the truth for your self. Also after your done reading, please DO drop some comments/additional info/point out mistakes etc. As there is a generalized public open forum for any comments/proves both in favour and against the article/Zaid Hamidat the end of page. And tell as many Muslims as you can, so they can also be aware. JAZAKALLAH.

Here is the link to all the facts/proves and a logical and detailed, comprehensive discussion on Zaid Hamid and Yousuf Ali A.K.A Yousuf Kazzab, including books / original audio of Yousuf Kazzab / Fatwas / reports / News etc:
May ALLAH show all of us the right path.
