While such expressions of noble acts are vital to establishing goodwill of the police department among police, there is also a need to boost morale and encourage honest police officials to improve their performance.
Many social media users including anchorperson Ajmal Jami also thanked the Islamabad Police for taking care of the citizens.
Earlier, incidents of torturing prisoners to death in the custody of Punjab Police had shaken the confidence of the people on police, which had stirred immense criticism on the police force across the country. The recent incidents had marred the image of the police and raised questions on their conduct.
This is Pakistan, Real Pakistan, where officials like Amir Beg are our heroes. Salute to you Sir! https://t.co/7NkhhgaiM4
