Usefully engaging Jail inmates

by Amjad Ali, Chitral


I get this idea from a news story published in Daily Mail (read details). Why should we also not employ jailed criminals to clean the roads and other hard labour instead of hauling them up in a compound and feeding them. Many people who have seen the jail life in Pakistan say it is rather comfortable for a criminal and they wouldn’t mind going back.there. If Jailed criminals are made to do hard labour in Public service it would have two benefits, firstly social service free of cost would be provided and secondly it would be a deterrent for habitual criminals to like the jail.
