Our Staff Reporter SIALKOT - Gujranwala Regional Police Officer (RPO) Ahmad Mubarik Ahmad has stressed the need of changing the mindset for overcoming the multi-faced social and economic issues. At this critical juncture there is great need for bringing positive change in our thinking and morality for the development of a healthy society. Addressing the members of Sialkot Press Club (SPC) on Monday afternoon, he said that the promotion of tolerance and decency were the key instruments for bringing radical changes in every sphere of life as well as tracking the society on right track. We have failed to identify our real enemies in 63 years and if impartially analyzed the overall situation, the illiteracy is our main enemy as a result of which the whole nation is suffering from socio-economic problems he said. Under the situation we could obtain guidance from Holy Quran and golden teaching Holy Prophet (PBUH) for bringing betterment in our attitude individually and collectively which will ultimately pave the way for bringing positive change in the society he added. Ahmad Mubarik further said that education always play a pivotal role in character building, decency and help promote moral values in the society. It is very unfortunate that there was a rapid decline in our moral values as a result of which the respect of elders and even parents had totally been vanished in the society he said. He called upon the parents that they spare sufficient time for their children because ignorance was hindering the character building of children which was creating social problems. The RPO Gujranwala further said that in my opinion the dacoits and robbers are innocent because of maltreatment, ignorance of the society and parents and overall we are responsible for their misdeeds. There was a rapid economic growth and everybody was busy to earn more and more but we have overlooked our social responsibilities resultantly our moral values are lowest ebb and we all are responsible in this episode he said. The RPO added that according to available statistic there were only 7 percent people doing welfare work in the country whereas in 1947 this ratio was 67 percent. We are utilizing physiological modes and methods for changing the police behavior for restoring the confidence of the masses on Police he added. The RPO underscored the need of developing cordial and close contacts between Press and the Police for obtaining yield result and to improve the efficiency of Police.
