5. The civil society should also play its due role; without their help it is impossible to overcome this problem. They can identify drug peddlers, drug suppliers in society. They must come forward and fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies.
6. Teachers of schools, Madressahs, colleges and universities should also counsel their students and must have periodic lectures on this issue.
7. Parents should also come forward and keep check on their kids, their activities and movement. Negligence of parents could be fatal for the future of their children.
8. Pakistan’s security forces, especially ANF and forces deployed at the Afghan border should take extra measures to enhanced vigilance and curb illicit trafficking.
9. Augment observation at airports in Pakistan. Many cases of drug trafficking has been reported in the recent past. Many Haj bound passengers were caught for drug trafficking, many Europe, Middle East and Africa bound passengers were also involved in the drug trafficking.
10. It is necessary for the school, college and university’s administration to increase vigilance and must have proper check on students residing hostels.
11. The government must provide more addiction treatment facilities in order to treat drugs related patients.
12. More recreational facilities should be created to take the youth off the drugs and engage them in positive, healthy activities.
All these steps should be taken on an emergency basis; any laxity in this regard would be considered as a criminal negligence. We cannot afford to have a major chunk of young generation suffering from drug abuse. Now is the time for the government, civil society, teachers, media and parents to come forward and work collectively towards a peaceful, healthy and drug-free Pakistan.
