Talk about Human rights situation in Pakistan and you will realize that from food to shelter, and from health care to education, Pakistan have lost the plot sometime ago. Now it is a disastrous picture in every part of the society. Terrorism and corruption have both destroyed any framework we ever had for development. Due to urbanization there is an increase in the uneducated and unskilled population shifting to fewer cities, causing unhealthy and expensive living conditions while burdening existing resources. Earning opportunities are limited to the adult, most able members of the population. We can also see an increase in poorer seniors, children and disabled population in total misery without any system to rescue them.
We, as a nation, can not afford to go on like this; the latest Thar dilemma and than flood and war in Waziristan are calling for a multidimensional plan from the State . This work can not be left to NGO’s, even in such situations it needs more check and balance when private NGO’s do the development work. It is the urgent need of the time to set our priorities straight regarding basic human rights- which can only be achieved by a state which implements laws and people who believe in service and volunteerism.
