I have seen many times that police takes bribe from every hawkers/stalls/carts between 8 PM to 10 PM in Gulshan-e-Iqbal block-14 Karachi. These hawkers have established their small business at footpath. They pay at least 20 rupees on daily basis to local police.
Further Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) and District Municipal Corporation (DMC) also take bribe (unofficial fees?) on daily basis. Around 5000 to 6000 hawkers pay bribe regularly.
One vegetable and fruit seller was crying and told that sometimes police take bribe and also take away fruits and vegetables. If we request and asked them t already collect bribe they threat and torture to destroy the shops.
One hawker said that they are not just taking bribe but asking for Azab of Allah because it is Haraam.
These hawkers complained to Chief Minister of Sindh Murad Ali Shah. They told about their problem. Sindh Chief Minister designated inspection team to investigate and resolve their problems immediately.
We have left the path of Allah and Sunnah. People are facing these type of problems since last several years. If we want to solve these problems we should implement Islamic economic system in our country.
