While cleaning a manhole, Rafiq Masih took his last breath. It is risky for a person to step into manhole to unclog sewer lines. This is disgusting because authorities don't have safety equipments. There should be machines rather than the people land in manhole. Such departments should be banned if they are not going to stop forcing people doing this. Here needs an instant change because this is against humanity. It can cause a lot of health issues for people who can't afford this. Safety should be the first priority. Manual manhole cleaning Should be illegal in Pakistan. Government should take a step in order to get rid of this. Poor workers are dying because of the negligence of the government. This needs to stop. It is unfair to the people involved in this.


Motive to write the petition

Humanity comes first of all, every human should get respect and better safety equipment where ever he is working. here is one of the twitter post reference to this death." #RafiqMasih father of four daughters was forced to clean a drain in Landhi on Sunday (weekly holiday) without any #SafetyEquipements which resulted his tragic death. Who is responsible for such deaths? Who should be held accountable? These pics need an answer. #SweepersNeedSafety "


Anticipate Action

As technology is advance enough that Government can buy machines to do such jobs, Machines are doing almost everything today, in many other countries its being experimented that ROBOTS should be used for such job where human have risk of life. Also Government and other related authorities should provide safety equipment and strict law whom who are not using safety measure if available.
