Securing our children

Muhammad Mubashar

I want to draw attention of the higher authorities toward security issues of the educational institutions in Lahore. Untrained and unarmed security guards, pickets and sandbags are inadequate to stop terrorism. Ordinary citizens are the only ones effected by such security measures, as, I am sure that, the security at these institutions would be unable to stop terrorists – if such an unfortunate event happens.
Most private institutions in the city are at the risk of being targeted. But we can see that they are only making money in the name of security from parent of students studying there. They provide inadequate security to their students by hiring before mentioned security guardsfor their schools.A few schools in the city have assigned security duties to their employees, in order to save themselves some money and to avoid government scrutiny. This issue can only be resolved by hiring professional,well-equipped and/or retired army men as security guards. Government should provide police trainers and to thesesecurity guards. I have seen many guards not checkingpeople entering schools and colleges in Lahore. They are not active and schools’ administration have stationed them there just as a formality. Parents can also play their role in safeguarding their children and making them secure. They should try their level best to pick up their children from schools themselves, while the school management should also realise their responsibility.

  1. Thanks for the advice on credit repair on this excellent site. Some tips i would tell people should be to give up this mentality that they may buy currently and fork out later. Being a society many of us tend to make this happen for many issues. This includes vacation trips, furniture, along with items we’d like. However, you’ll want to separate your current wants out of the needs. If you are working to boost your credit score actually you need some trade-offs. For example you’ll be able to shop online to save cash or you can look at second hand merchants instead of high-priced department stores pertaining to clothing.
