Child labour

Witnessing a child working on a zarang car (motorcycle rickshaw) is one of the toughest thing to see. He was almost 7 years old. He is out of school and doing this to earn bread and butter for his family. We can find many other children’s in the city who are working from dawn to dusk to fulfill the wishes of their families.

Despite having elder brothers and father, the children below the age of 15 are working in different garages, workshops, zarang cars and etc. The basic right of those children’s like to get education is being snatched by the family members with the assistance of the concerned authorities who are not showing any seriousness towards child labour in the city or country. It is the only cause which is makes the illiteracy rate of Pakistan fly above the clouds and the GDP down the earth.

Finally, I would like to request the families of these children’s not to send them to work unless very much compel and protect their special days of childhood. Government should be taken some steps on this issue.
