Their necessary role in maintaining the cleanliness of the outdated and inadequate sewer system of Pakistan, has never been appreciated. The sanitary men of Pakistan are paid a pittance, are bullied and harassed by their Muslim overlords and are not provided even the merest of protective equipment. Every day they go to work is a day they potentially will not return home but it is a risk they willingly take to ensure food is on the table for their wives and children.
BPCA officer Grace Masih visited the families of Saleem Masih, his son Nadeem Masih and colleague Danish Masih, who were killed in yet another tragedy in Pakistan's notorious sewage industry. The incident took place on 3rd July 2017 and has barely been mentioned in any media because no-one cares about these insignificant beings - only their families.
There she counselled the family and described the cruel isolation of the Christian community who live on the fringes of society but have a strong camaraderie between them. The defiant spirit of this community has ensured their survival despite the odds stacked against them. In Britain the number if suicides per year is close to 6000, whereas in Pakistan it is 300. The beleaguered Christians of Pakistan seem to have great resilience and a passion for life that those of us in the west could learn from. Grace visited the graves of victims and shared a time of prayer and thanksgiving for the lives that have now returned to our heavenly father, with the families of the dead sanitary workers.
