In olden days the educated among a tribe were killed, so that the illiterate tribal rulers could rule and bend laws and religion according to their need. Time has changed but not the faces and it is still happening, the murder of Dr. Shakeel Ouj (late) is proof of this. He was a teacher who built a peaceful society but was killed by cruel people. As a teacher he played an important role in the life of his students and his brutal killing cannot be justified. The University of Karachi and some other universities protested but who will take action against the killers? The government has failed to improve law and order in Karachi despite the long lasting operation.

It’s my request to the government to please look into the case and try to give security to teachers, because they spend their lives in service to the country.
