Those who exist in memories.. ...

Urooba Rehman Qazi(LATE)-LEFT
Sweet cuddly face, decorated with a never-forgetting smile, chubby cheeks and a long waving pony tail at the back- No one in our family can forget this girl who has always brought smiles to everyone's face. She was the girl full of love, shy and respect for all the elders. Though was naughty at times, she would love to tease the younger ones. This young girl who was just 13 years of age has left all of us in tears, cries and memories...

Lahore is in the clutches of deadly virus DENGUE. News bulletin daily breaks horrible news of dengue engulfing many innocent lives in the city of Lahore alone. Markets, schools, colleges and universities have been shutdown due to the fear of this cursed epidemic Dengue fever. Every where its only the "death" dancing around.. It feels even more horrible when you yourself are the one to lose a beloved, a blood relative.. to experience a loss that can not be recovered..

How shameful it is that our government cant even control or tackle a mosquito?a mere mosquito? And to the hell, government is importing mosquito killing chemical from India when it is present in the country in sufficient quantities. I mean what the heck? Honestly, government is equally responsible in the murder of these innocent lives. I don't know why aren't they afraid of THEIR time. Why just they have forgotten ALLAH? Why don't they think that how will they face Allah? I was so surprised to find out that Imran Khan who apparently is working for this poor nation sincerely is also busy in looting the people at such bleak times. His laboratories in Shokat Khanum were accused to charge patients with heavy fees for CBC reports. when contacted, he replied that they are not a government ruling body, so how dare govt point us out? He said that since Shokat Khanum Hospital is a Cancer hospital, cancer patients get full treatment free of cost. Dear readers, tell me does this attitude seem sane? is this justifiable? shokat khanam hospital is being run with the help of funds, zakatas and sadqas, then who has given him a right to charge patients heavily? Dengue is a fatal disease and people like Imran are busy in taking the benefits of the situation... shame on all the politicians and on the blind followers..

Dear readers,
In 5% people dengue may be dangerous, but in other cases it is treatable. Remember prevention is better than cure. Always use a mosquito-repellent lotion, wear full sleeves and avoid capris, short shirts etc. Do not go out during maghrib and fajar times. If unfortunately you develop fever and symptoms like eye pain, head ache, and rash donot panic. Go and get yourself a CBC report. Your platelet count must not be less than 50,000. In normal healthy person platelets range from 1,50000-4,50000.

Take very good care of yourself and pray that our dear Pakistan gets free from all such shackles.Amen

Sister, our believe connects us wherever and whoever we are so , death of your beloved one saddened me as well.

"Surely, Allah takes what is His , and what He gives is His, and to all things He has appointed a time ... so have patience and be rewarded." (Bukhari 2/80, Muslim 2/636)

"May Allah magnify your reward, and make perfect your bereavement, and forgive your departed."

May Allah (SWT)(the Beneficent, and the Merciful) grant her place in Jannatul Firdaus. And may Allah help her parents (and other relatives) to bear the sad incident with patience.

Most of my family members also live in Lahore and though they were also effected by a type of fever but it was not the decease which you mentioned above.

:o

Can't believe it. :o

Shaukat Khanam may have reasons/pressures of doing such thing :/

If you can provide a link regarding the info, it'll be appreciated.

Yes dengue can be controlled, but IF govt wants to... Our govt thinks about long term (backed by visionary dads) so there is a possibility of "neglecting" this short-term loss... You know what i mean

Our government is a failure. It can neither compensate short term loss nor the long term losses. Moreover, our governments planning are also failed! They simply donot intend to solve the problems but simply to increase them.

I am sorry i cannot give the link. I saw that on geo tv news bulletin and they also got Imran khan live in the bulletin via phone call where he expressed the same things i have quoted.

rIZ said...

hmmm... right

I meant dad's "long-term" plans... :/
