There is a famous saying justice must not only be done but also must be seen to be done. The innocent killing of Nazim Jokhio has an acute need of justice, who was killed by so-called feudal lords. This tragic story happened in Malir Karachi where an innocent victim was killed for no defined reason.

His fault was that he forbade Arab Hunters from hunting from his village, for which he was killed by so-called feudalists. A few hours back before his death, Nazim Jokhio was live on social media where he told that he is being pressurized to delete a video that was recorded when an Arab hunter was beating him. Incoming morning, the dead body of Nazim was found from a farmhouse. The question arises here, will the poor have no right to live with dignity? Are these culprits above the law? For me, the answer is no, they are not going to escape the law. 

Soon criminals will be punished according to law. The offenders who are associated with the murder of innocent Nazim Jokhio are not to be done away from the law, those men who resort to such criminal practices must be punished. The message must be clear: those who engage in these methods will not be able to get away with the crime. So the exemplary punishment must be given to them.

Everyone should be deeply saddened by any potential loss of innocent life. In the future, these tragedies will be averted only if the government takes immediate efforts. The government must promote progressive, justice-orientated policies.
