Today is the 6th martyrdom anniversary of the hero of Muhammadi Top Captain Hassan Javaid Satti Shaheed.

Captain Hassan Javaid Shaheed embraced martyrdom at Muhammadi Top in Tirah Valley, Kurram Agency on 31st May 2013, during operation Al-Mizan.

Muhammadi Top has been renamed as “Captain Hassan Top” to pay tribute to Captain Hassan Musahib Javaid Satti Shaheed, Sitara-e-Basalat. He joined 23 Baloch Regiment of Pakistan Army with 116 PMA Long Course - Saad Company.

On the night of 30th-31st May 2013, Captain Hassan Javaid's Company was given a task to capture and take control over a strategically important Height Muhammadi Top in Kurram Agency. Captain Hassan volunteered himself for the difficult approach, he scaled a rugged mountainous terrain for over 11 hours with combat load of approximately 30 Kg and reached the target area in surprisingly short time.

He led his men from the front, the other two companies approaching from left and front were held back due to intense enemy attack. He established contact with the Terrorists and fought for 1 hour and 15 minutes. In order to provide relief to the pinned down Companies, he diverted the terrorists’ fire towards him.
He received a bullet in his face and embraced Shahadat right on the spot during the intense fight. The Government of Pakistan awarded him Sitara-e-Bisalat for his bravery and courage. He hailed from Chonor, Tehsil Kahuta, District Rawalpindi.

Ramadan Mubarak to all Muslims around the world. May the Ramadan bring you peace and prosperity, good health and wealth, and brighten your life forever. May ALLAH ease pain and sufferings of Ummah. Ameen ‘Ubadah ibn Samit رضي الله عنه reports that Rasulullah ﷺ used to teach the Sahabah the following Du’a when the Blessed month of Ramadan would arrive :

 ‎ اَللَّهُمَّ سَلِّمْنِيْ لِرَمَضَانَ وَسَلِّمْ رَمَضَانَ لِيْ وَسَلِّمْهُ لِيْ مُتَقَبَّلا “

 “O Allah ! preserve me for Ramadan, safeguard Ramadan for me and accept it from me.”

Labour Day (1st May) is a public holiday in Pakistan that is marked by rallies, marches, processions, labour/worker union sessions and organized street demonstrations.
Enforcement of labour laws in our country is very poor rather its mockery. About 40 million workforce in industrial and commercial sector is unable to get most of the benefits provided under the labour laws of Pakistan. There is no formal survey on the implementation of labour laws.
It is unfortunate and funny to promulgate laws and increase minimum wages for unskilled workers every year but without any implementation. Provincial governments do not have any will and capacity to implement labour laws in their own province.
The mistreatment of domestic help — and by extension, child domestic workers — is all too common in Pakistani cities. Domestic labour falls under the category of informal work, or ‘invisible’ labour. There are no clear laws to guarantee their rights, and no regulations to check whether the rights they are entitled to (eg minimum wage) are ensured. In Pakistan, we are not even sure who comes under the category of a ‘child’ due to the prevalence of contradictory laws. But just because they belong to the ‘invisible’ workforce does not mean we turn a blind eye to their mistreatment.
We expect new government to enact fresh labour laws keeping in view modern day requirements and implement vigorously.
