Fingerprints Data Cell for Begggars?

Now that’s an interesting thing.

Every nook and corner of Islamabad is full of beggar families these days. They usually come to the city from Punjab and elsewhere during the two eid seasons.

Let’s see how the scheme goes … if it ever happens i.e.

    Does these also include the ones in our government? who are going to IMF and Worldbank. But I think that their fingerprints are already available with the police ;)

    Good Job !!

    Infect Government should call to all of us for Fingerprints Data, this may take time but once its in position, the out come of this project will help us all to cope with numerous negative activities.

    Good Luck

    Talk is cheap. Unfortunately implementation is not so. It is rather ironical that a nation of beggers does not allow beggery among its members.

    Wont it be nice if the government finger prints professional thieves in high places and prevents them from returning to power?

    1. Finger printing does not prevent stealing as such. It only helps identification of a thief.
    2. The professional thieves don’t leave their finger prints behind.
    3. Professional thieves are so clever and bold that they steal in the light of the lamp as per the Persian saying:
    Cheh dilwar astay duzday kah bakaf chiragh darad
    (Translation: How bold is the thief that he keeps a lamp in his hand)
    4. These thieves are so well known (and respected and honoured) that they don’t need finger prints for their idientification.
    5. Thievery at high places has become part of our culture.

    As a matter of fact i have noticed that there arnt many beggars around Islamabad as before. I will agree @ anwar that finger printing wont stop them its just the government as well as us who should make pakistan a welfare state so these practices could be stopped. May be some of them would be working for ISI as well.

    @kabirdas: Thievery at every level … true that gives birth to corruption and fraudulent behaviors.

    @hasan: very much possible.

    Sir, there are three reasons for the recent reduced number of beggers in Islamabad as follows:

    1. There was a news item in The News the other day that some of them have been arrested and sent to Adiala Jail (perhaps for further training).

    2. There is another news item in The News that some of them have gone to Saudi Arabia to beg at international level.

    3. There is yet another news item in The News that for a large number of them a welfare state has indeed been made where they will earn their living by serving the poors. They will be known as ministers, ministers of states, parlimentry secretaries and adviser to this and that. Poors are served or not but at least some poverty has been eradicated this way.

    " Thievery at every level … true that gives birth to corruption and fraudulent behaviors".

    Ma’am you have mostly been seen expressing yourself in some kind of heliographic sign language which generally goes over my head. However, some times you do find time and energy to write few words which convey some profound thought like the one quoted above which instead of going over my head hit my head.

    Thievry gives birth to corruption indeed is a profound thought and you know why? One of the greatest scientist of last century, Niel Bohr, once said: The opposite of a correct statement is an incorrect statement but the opposite of a profound truth may be another profound truth. Judging according to this criteria you have certainly stated a profound truth. Thievery gives birth to corruption. The opposite of it: Corruption gives birth to thievry also holds good. Absolutely fantastic:-)
