The All Pakistan Anjuman-e-Tajiran (APAT) on Monday rejected prolonged Eid holidays and lockdown from May 8 to 17, announcing that they would keep shops open till chand raat.

“We reject this announcement as small traders and shopkeepers are already in great trouble due to limited market timings and working days. This is also causing a huge rush of shoppers in the markets, spreading the virus fast,” APAT General Secretary Naeem Mir said in a press release.

He asked the government to stop flag march, stop harassing traders and allow them to keep their shops open till 12am on Chand Raat to reduce rush due to limited hours. “If you don’t do so, we will keep our shops open,” he warned.

ان لوگوں کو شرم نہیں آتی۔ دن بدن کیسز بڑھ رہے ہیں اور یہ لوگ ذلالت دکھا رہے ہیں ۔ بھارت میں دیکھو کیا قیامت ائ ہوئ ہے اور ان لوگوں کو احساس تک نہیں ہے۔ یہ لوگ ہیں ہی شریفوں اور زر داریوں کے قابل

I know that this lockdown will create financial trouble for most of the people but sometimes you have to do it in order to avoid bigger tragedy which is the loss of human lives. Since government’s vaccination drive is very slow due to various reasons, so we have no choice but to enforce two-week lockdown in order to flatten the curve for 3rd wave. Instead of 8 days shutdown, government should add 6 more days to it and make it a 14 days shutdown.

How do you know if someone, who disagrees with your opinion is necessarily a PML(n) supporter?
Or is it so, that being a PTI supporter your mental capacity is severely limited!

Also what solution do you propose for those poor shop keepers, small business owners and Labourers who have no income to survive on? Regardless of Corona, dont they have to earn a basic living somehow?
shouldnt government provide a solution for them?

Not at the expense of 1000s of lives. If earning a basic was really their issue they can approach the govt to get some kind of tax break or other incentive to make up for the closure. But that doesn't gel with them because majority of them don't pay tax. Ask for a proper receipt for your purchase from them and see what happens.

The real reason is they want to put in their "season" and mint money at the expense of potentially 1000s of lives.

Thats just sweeping generalisation and doesn’t mean anything.

Pakistan is a poor country with no intact welfare & social support system in place. Its not like germany, where fake Asylum seekers are living a luxurious life on tax payers expense (you should know that well)!
