Theme: Removing barriers to create an inclusive and accessible society for all.
As yet another International. World Disabled Day is celebrating on 3rd December, the disabled persons would as anticipated summon up the promises and assurances given to them during the last International Disabled Day around a year back and understand that nothing much has changed in their life content. While promises and celebrations take place year after year like a ceremony, seminars and conferences, several of the disabled persons continue to live on in conditions of poverty and uncertainty, not knowing as to what the future would hold for them. With physical immobility on the one hand and lack of resources and insufficient income on the other hand, most of the disabled persons do not have the access to quality educational institutions or the facilities to acquire the requisite skill to employ them.
Advantage to Celebrate Disabled Day:
What is the benefit to celebrate every year disabled people day? Has disabled people benefited from celebration of this day up to now. The answer is NO! There are such organizations which have been established only for the benefit of disabled people. These organizations request for donations from advanced countries and organizations. The only people who has benefited from the celebration of this day, who ask for a donation for the disabled persons. Because these people are selfish and hypocrite. They organize seminars and conferences with the help of these donations or funds. Such conferences and seminars have nothing except eating and drinking. Such organizations have just nothing except hollow and tall slogans. Many persons with disabilities have been seeking suitable jobs, employments for the last several years but sadly all their efforts are wasted. No results all in vain. Because of egotism and ignorance of government, welfare and disabled people organizations. Because of such negligence and carelessness several disabled persons have been over-aged and now they are not eligible for any government and other jobs, employment. Now tell me what the future of such disabled people is.
Government Hollow Slogans:
While the government has some schemes to help them, the fact and reality is that such schemes are far too inadequate considering the population of the disabled persons and the intensity of their problems. The disability not only causes physical discomfort but also mental trauma and frustration as they cannot be part of the mainstream of life, which make their life doubly difficult. The reservation provided by the government in jobs is far too inadequate and most of the disabled persons are not benefited by such reservation policies. In Pakistan this time disabled people celebrated a disabled day as a strong protest. Because every year the entire world celebrates this day with great enthusiasm but there is no one truly to help them. Everyone has hollow slogans.
I request to the Government of Pakistan and Disabled persons organizations please take a serious and concrete step for the benefits of all disabled people especially those disabled persons who have been over-aged.
