EVEN IF HEY WILL HAVE CLEAR RULES AND REGULATIONS DEFINED, CORRUPT PEOPLE WILL GET AWAY BY OFFERING BRIBES TO INSPECTORS, AFTER THIS INCIDENCE THERE SHOULD BE LAW IF ANY INSPECTOR IGNORE SAFETY RULE THEY SHOULD BE PENALIZED AND HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INCIDENT AND GET LONG JAIL TIME

We are in a fairly complexed situation and trying to solve problems of such high magnitude sitting in drawing rooms chatting.Drastic situations required drastic steps. Who would take that first step, a million dollar question. Let us agree on sometihing a rather easier to achieve,AT LEAST VOTE THIS TIME FOR A RIGHT PERSON. System needs a complet overhall but a first step has to be taken in a right direction.I could'nt agree more that EDUCATION can bring about the kind of change we need, but...

We are in a fairly complexed situation and trying to solve problems of such high magnitude sitting in drawing rooms chatting.Drastic situations required drastic steps. Who would take that first step, a million dollar question. Let us agree on sometihing a rather easier to achieve,AT LEAST VOTE THIS TIME FOR A RIGHT PERSON. System needs a complet overhall but a first step has to be taken in a right direction.I could'nt agree more that EDUCATION can bring about the kind of change we need, but mind you there are forces, which would always creat hurdles.Therefore,an honest and a selfless leader required to take over the affairs of this remarkable country. I pary and hope that we come out of this horrible situation before it becomes too late.

So, first,we should look at ourselves,are we,as an individual doing anything constructive, with in our parameters of approach, which would bring about a positive change.We can only become a better Muslim, if we first become a better human being.I can jot down a long list of things, which we can do w/o having to distrub our all mighty.To name a few,let us stop spitting on places not meant for it and throughing dirty tissue paper all over the places, but not in the TRASH BIN.We should at least do our bit right, in the hope that othres would also do the same.

There are so many agencies to keep an eye onthe factory's building,exits,ve tilation,windows,gates,fire extinguishers,electri ity safety,generators-----a long list of precautions
But
Who cares?
The concerned departments are corrupt
They just come monthlyto get the money to OK----close their eyes----for them human life holds no meaning.
We are a mean nation
Could'nt care less
So what
Garib ki jan ki kia ahmiat?
It is sucha sorry situation
Today its them
Tomarrow it can be us
Who cares

Paisa lai
Janai dai
Hai koi jou aai
Aur danda chalai
Latoun kai bhoot
Batoun sai kahan manai gai?
Mulk barbad
Stone age
About to break
By our very own mistakes
Beggers we are
For aplate of biryani we attack like wolves
We liveon river banksso that flood comes
And people get compensated
What kind of a nation are we?
Gurbat apni lai hui
Karna kakh na
Parhaath utha
Maang dua
Kai jholi bhar dai ya Rab
Rab ouski madad karta hai
Jou apni madad aap karai ga

It is my firm belief that without education we can not move forward and it is our duty to make each and every Pakistani educated than only we can survive in this fast moving world so we must pay full attention on our young generation.

Begin by 'absolute accountability' according to the Sharia to be applied across the politicians and the top brass, and the trickle effect down the line will just not 'allow' such tragedies to occur in the future.

Corrupt Syestem is the cause , education in safety standards would not help at all every one know that .

In third world like Pakistan there are no regulations for fire safety, but only on papers. Factory people did not provide proper training to workers. No concept of hiring professionals in factory. Only a short circuit can extinguish complete factory. Emergency exit plans remains pasted on walls but they are not real. I am with the opinion that proper education, training and daily drills will strengthen the factory staff and in catastrophes they will do their safety first than overcome the trouble.

like urs people can educate , but when their is no interest in government and employees also , no on ecan teach , all factory workers are very illetrate and poor so they can not force government or employer... to provide facilities.
