Everyone knows the state of injustice and poverty has plagued our country for ages. Nowadays, humanity is taking giants leaps and we, Pakistanis, are still unable to deliver the basic rights to the poor and especially women.
The viral video is about a woman named Samina. Due to so many injustices, assorted on her by her family have resorted to selling Gol Gappa’s in the streets of Lahore.
The heart-breaking story of Samina is surely one for us to listen to!
Samina has two daughters and one son. Her eldest daughter is mentally disabled, while the younger one is divorced.
Samina’s husband, Tanveer, lost his leg due to an accident he met while working in Kuwait. Throughout life, Samina has faced tremendous hardships as if the atrocities thrown at her by life were not enough.
Not even Samina’s Family is supporting her:
Her family didn’t provide much comfort either as she was mistreated by her brothers. Only light of hope in Samina’s life is her son named Prince Ahmed, who was born after 14 years of prayers.
Due to her husband being physically disabled and her son being 10 years old, there was no male presence to defend the family.
Are we still humans?

With no hope and support, Samina still believes in the power of God. She is hopeful that one day, things will get better.
It is hard to believe that even in these modern times people betray there closed ones and leave them to rot like this.
Shouldn’t we reach out to Samina and help her in this hour of need? Maybe an act of goodness can reignite the light in her life!
