Thanks for writing this all. This should alert the citizens for their safety and security. At the same time this should be an eye opener for our authorities who sleep over such serious issues of public interest. For them what is important is political infighting and mutual leg pulling. How the common man is living is not their headache. And SIFC still expects billions in investments. Islamabad is a relatively small capital with a small population. If this is the state of affairs in the capital, imagine the situation in rest of the country.

ادارے اپنے ذمہ داریاں دینے میں بری طرح ناکام ہوچکے ہیں ۔اک ملک کے کپیٹل میں ایسے واردات ہو رہی ہو تو ادھر کے انتظامی نظام کا کام کتنا اچھا ہے ہر عقل و بالغ کو سمجھ آتاہیں۔

the security institutions are busy polishing boots of nawaz sharif so they don't have time to look after this.

جناب آگر پاکستان میں اسلام آباد محفوظ نہیں تو پھر کچھ بھی نہیں اسلام آباد پولیس تو سندھ پولیس بھی زیادہ کمزور ھے بس جب تک پولیس میں سیاسی مداخلت ختم نہیں ھو گئی بات نہیں بنے گی خاص طور پر اسلام آباد پولیس کو چاہئے کہ وہ آپنا معیار اور قبلہ درست کرے

If law fails to arrest this trend of dacoities and snatching, Islamabad may become like karachi where street crime is common

CPLC, Citizens Police Laison Committee, very active in Karachi. From Traders, to chapriwallas, all members on a volunteer basis. CPLC exists in Islamabad, but totally inactive. Similar organisations should be activated every city. Without public being on board, nothing will work, least of all security.

Police and all other LEAs are busy abducting our Mothers, daughters & sisters. There focus is to help make a king who is a confirmed thiefe. Thieves will surely help their kin. AllahAlmighty may help us & protect Pakistan.

Street Crimes have increased manifold in the capital city Islamabad. It's main reason is that price hike and inflation have pushed many families below the poverty line. Further the care taker government is paying no heed to the vulnerability of people. Let us pray for the end of existing regime at the earliest.
