What the hell is happening to this country? V r being had. Let us starve but get US out of our hair. 65 years ago, there was no Pakistan. 65 years hence, there may b no Pakistan again. Get hold of the scoundrels and b the country that our founders wanted it to b. Otherwise, v r better w/o it.

I was cursing them because when they give $s, it goes to the pockets of the elites but they remain a liability for us poor because v don't get them as grants, like Israel, but as loans. Tens of our coming generations will have to pay back this money while the country burns.

"...more than 300 laborers were blazed in a factory is a result of complete negligence of authorities regarding HSE rules and cruelty of exploiting factory owners, who treat working class as slaves; poor working conditions, work exceeding 16 hours, and closure of gates are only part of the inhuman conditions in factories. The recent incident would have not taken place if there had been proper working conditions and gates wouldn't have been closed.
This is a clear case of mass murder and FIR should be filed under the clauses of mass murder..."

most people have no idea why the people died! because as usual, we have an opinion without knowing the full truth, and hearsay is good enough for us to launch a witch-hunt with a very strong conviction :( the negligence was of the regulating authorities, who look the other way, nay encourage violations, as they get mioney for it...as for owners, they can either shut the factories or take measures to stop this 'chor' nation from stealing everything that they can get out through the windows...

Ghazanfar, i am sorry but i didn't get it if you were for or against the OWNERS being held primarily responsible for the catastrophe... I for one hold them responsible, primarily, as i do myself for not having a fire [catastrophe] safe home or office or a decent SOP in a similar event... YES, we are all responsible, but those people who do employ so many Pakistanis and who do so for profit [not out of the goodness of their heart], are responsible for their safety and security. If you know...

Azmat, totally understand where you're coming from! just so that you know, i've run a couple of these factories for 5 years. Nobody runs a business for charity, but a lot of people allow social welfaer to become an inherent part of their business, as mucha s they can afford, and often beyond the standard call of duty. Having said that, the Government agencies don't allow you to operate straight, even if you want to, as everyone might start getting ideas! furthermore, the inherent crook in...

Azmat, totally understand where you're coming from! just so that you know, i've run a couple of these factories for 5 years. Nobody runs a business for charity, but a lot of people allow social welfaer to become an inherent part of their business, as mucha s they can afford, and often beyond the standard call of duty. Having said that, the Government agencies don't allow you to operate straight, even if you want to, as everyone might start getting ideas! furthermore, the inherent crook in most of this population forces measures to protect the business, which wouldn't survive too many days, if everyone was freely allowed to walk away with whatever they wanted, from machinery to products. I agree that there need to be better accident protection standards, but the Government has to lead and not put the blame on the enterpreneur, who may have actually been doing a lot of good, but may have not foreseen this situation. Trust me no one wants his business to burn down!! people there or not...

one thing i dont get is generalizing all the factory owners & factories as all being the same as of Ali Enterprises............does anyone realise how the labors always keep the owners hostage; as foreign customers dont come to pakistan due to terrorism threats, it takes a limb for the owner to get orders & that too by being regionally cheap in prices, and the labor then exploits the owners at crucial production times.........does anyone realise the huge amount of labor turnover in EACH...

My friend, the Pakistanis have to dig deep into their souls, the factory owners and the authority concerned should be punished to the full extent of the law, but again; they are probably related to the higher ups and nothing will come out of this tragedy. Sad to say, but truth be told; these people don't give a damn about human life.
