Eradicating Hunger From Pakistan – A documentary by “Think Twice Pakistan”

At a time when Pakistan is facing countless problems, there are people who are silently working for the betterment of the motherland. These devoted Pakistanis are working towards accomplishment of their goal to bring Pakistan out of the shadows. These are the people who are striving to change perceptions regarding Pakistan from a terrorism stricken Pakistan to an inspiring Pakistan. Despite of all the pessimism prevailing there are some Pakistanis that are still highly motivated and are contributing towards welfare of the state in their individual capacity. Their spirits are high and they are certain that they can be the positive change agents for the country.

When most of the world shows the darker side of Pakistan it forgets to mention heroics like Parveen Saeed. Parveen Saeed is a simple Pakistani who aims to reduce the problems Pakistan is facing today. She is a woman of substance who is serving the country in her best capacity for last 23 years. Parveen Saeed is the face of a brighter Pakistan, positive Pakistan and a Pakistan remains hidden from the world.

Love for her country and the spirit to serve descended to Parveen from her parents. Acknowledging that hunger is the root cause of many evils across the globe, Parveen Saeed runs “Khana Ghar” to reduce this problem in Pakistan. “Khana Ghar” serves the poor with healthy food in just 3 rupees. Foundation of Khana Ghar was laid after Parveen Saeed witnessed a dreadful incident in her vicinity when a mother killed her three children because she was unable to feed them for three days.

To prove that hunger is not greater than mother’s love, to ensure that rate of such vices fall and to promote the brighter image of Pakistan Parveen Saeed and her team is working day and night. Not only this, but Khana Ghar is also a source of employment and morale booster for many people. People come there, work, earn their living and feed their families.

Parveen wants to expand Khana Ghar to all parts of country and desires to see that day soon when no one will sleep hungry.

The role that media can play here is highly critical. It is their responsibility to identify such people and share their stories with the world. To inspire people and infuse a spirit of positivism in Pakistanis and show this side of Pakistan to the world.

أَرَأَيْتَ الَّذِي يُكَذِّبُ بِالدِّينِ ٥ فَذَلِكَ الَّذِي يَدُعُّ الْيَتِيمَ ٥ وَلَا يَحُضُّ عَلَى طَعَامِ الْمِسْكِينِ ٥ فَوَيْلٌ لِّلْمُصَلِّينَ ٥ الَّذِينَ هُمْ عَن صَلَاتِهِمْ سَاهُونَ ٥ الَّذِينَ هُمْ يُرَاءُونَ ٥ وَيَمْنَعُونَ الْمَاعُونَ

Have you considered him who calls the judgment a lie? That is the one who treats the orphan with harshness, And does not urge (others) to feed the poor. So woe to the praying ones, Who are unmindful of their prayers, Who do (good) to be seen, And withhold the necessaries of life.

بھلا تم نے اس شخص کو دیکھا جو (روزِ) جزا کو جھٹلاتا ہے؟ یہ وہی (بدبخت) ہے، جو یتیم کو دھکے دیتا ہے۔ اور فقیر کو کھانا کھلانے کے لیے( لوگوں کو) ترغیب نہیں دیتا۔ تو ایسے نمازیوں کی خرابی ہے۔ جو نماز کی طرف سے غافل رہتے ہیں ۔ جو ریا کاری کرتے ہیں۔ اور برتنے کی چیزیں عاریتہً نہیں دیتے۔
