The law and order situation across Pakistan is alarmingly dangerous. Nobody is safe within and outside his home. One of the crimes which is really becoming a threatening menace is the kidnapping and ransom. Due to the ease of execution, dismal law and order, un-awareness among the populace, poverty and greed in the society, this scary act is one of the easiest way to obtain money.
Obaid Pasha, a student of BCS, resident of Gulzar-a-Quaid, Rawalpindi was murdered brutally in such a crime. He was kidnapped on 6th March of this year, and was strangled to death on 11th or 12th March. His captors then collected the ransom after his death, at the end of the March. They were arrested couple of days ago from Rawalpindi. The two kidnappers comprised of a female Samara a.k.a Saba and Dr. Raheel Omair. Dr. Raheel was a family friend of Obaid Pasha and used to come to their house even after the kidnapping. Samara was the leader of the two. That cold-blooded female is said to be a professional killer and kidnapper, who has being doing this kind of heinous acts for many years. The family of Obaid is ruined, and so are the claims of all the rosy pictures of law and order in the twin cities.
In these dangerous times, the best course of action is to defend one self by proactive measures. Nobody, other than the closed relatives should be allowed inside the affairs of family. One should not disclose his or her financial status and progress to anybody. One should not discuss one’s itinerary with anyone. One should not lean on police or law enforcement agencies for protection.
Upon such a nadir act, I am perplexed about the meaning of humanity.
