Shocking news came in from Munawan near Lahore, where a roof of a kacha house fell on the residents, killing two girls aged 7 and 9, while injuring three more people. Does the Khadim-i-Punjab realise his responsibility when two poor girls die from the collapse of a mud house? Can he sleep peacefully in his pakka house in Lahore? Do our rulers who get medical treatment in London realise the plight of poor people when roofs collapse on them, burying them alive, while they have expensive flats in posh areas of London? All this requires a keen sense of responsibility.
