Yes, I am a Policeman


Yes, I am a Policeman

 

I am the one who stands without a bullet proof vest outside the mosque missing his prayer so that you can offer prayer with ease and without any danger. I am the one who stands outside the mosque missing his Eid prayer so that you can offer Eid prayer. I am the one who doesn’t go home to celebrate Eid with his mother, father, wife and children so that you can celebrate Eid peacefully. I am the one who stands outside your church so that you can celebrate Christmas. I am the one who stands outside temple so that you can pray. I am the one who even when sick stands under the direct sunlight without any air conditioner, fan and umbrella outside the hospital so that you can get yourself checked without any danger.

 

 

I am the one who stands outside your markets so that you can shop easily. I am the one who stands outside your parks, restaurants and cafes so that you can enjoy and eat peacefully. I am the one who stands outside your markets so that you can shop. I am the one who on his birthday stands outside your birthday party so that you can celebrate it. I am the one who on his wedding anniversary day stands outside your marriage hall so that you can enjoy precious moments of life.

 

 

I am the one who is unable to see his ailing parents, his pregnant wife, and his school going children so that you can be at peace. I am the one who can’t attend his sister and daughter’s wedding so that you can enjoy your sister and daughter’s wedding. I am the one who on his salary day stands outside the bank to guard you so that you can have your salary in time. I am the one who without even any protection and fear performs a body search of people so that no terrorist can harm you. I am the one who keeps on waking at night so that you can sleep peacefully.

 

 

I am the one who without sophisticated, automated weapons and bullet proof vest fights with terrorists so that my homeland can be a peaceful place to live in. I am the one who stands out in foggy, chilling weather so that you can enjoy the warmth of heaters in your home. I am the one who stands outside your school, colleges and universities so that you can study and serve this country. I am the one who stands outside polling station so that you can cast your vote. I am the one who has spent his young time to serve you so that you can enjoy your time. I am the one who smiles even if you shout. I am the one whose thousands of colleagues lost their lives while protecting their countrymen.

 

 

I am the one who performs his duty without taking any bribe and fear but even then being labeled as “Chillar”, “Thief”, “Dishonest” and “Liar”. I am no one else but a proud Policeman and no matter how much wrong you think of me I shall continue to serve my Country and Nation.

 

 

 

Dedicated to All Policemen of this homeland. We Salute You.

    All the paras are very much correct except the first and a half line of the fifth one ” I am the one who performs his duty without taking any bribe and fear but even then being labeled as “Chillar”, “Thief”, “Dishonest” and “Liar”. Yet their contribution to the society is great . Yes, indeed they deserve salute from us for their matchless sacrifices for keeping us safe up to some extent.

    Majority of police in pakistan is the real reason of corruption and all social problems in Pakistan. Police is running prostitution,drugs dealing,extortion,bribery,kidnapping,fake encounters,land grabbing,stealing and above all they make the life hell for innocent people. Yah woh kuttay hayn jo khatay surkar ka hayn or ghulami jurm kurnay walay kee kurtay hayn. The act of one policeman can not hide the big dirty picture of this department. Have you forgotten the killing of two innocent brothers in the presence of police in sialkot, they have rape several innocent women in police chokies. The charge sheet is big. I pray for everyone may all protect everybody from the harm and devastation of police. They are equal to pigs.

    (Policemen): I am the one who has governmental power to loot the people.

    The title is missing something. Perhaps it should have been: “Yes I am a Policeman and yes I am Corrupt.”

  • Usman Akhlaq

    surely enough the ones who have not faced a policeman in recent times are approving the article innocently, otherwise the ones who happen to face a couple of them at odds can only want to kick them, despite all of the decency and nobleness.

    We waste our breath in blaming the Pakistan police for exhorting bribe from the public but we never take a break to know the factors it.The culture of bribe and corruption has permeated throughout the warp and woof of Pakistan’s civil society.When the whole society is plagued is corruption,to expect of police to stay uneffected is preposterous.Since with his thin salary,a policeman cannot procure his family the bares necessities of life_____ roof, food, health care, education and transportation,etc______naturally,he will resort to misuse his authority for the fulfillment of them.The most of the Pakistan’s civil servants etc.are thugs. The magnitude of their thuggery can be measure on the scale of their ranks and designation.
