Constable Mushtaq was injured in an attack on a police vehicle that left four of his colleagues dead and left him injured and disabled. Per Dawn Newspaper report; soon after the attack, Mushtaq moved to a rented house with his wife and three children and sold his previous home to foot the exorbitant hospital bills. He has been left with no savings to support his family or himself. I think it is our responsibility to help this brave man get appropriate medical care and help him raise his children with properly with good education and nutrition. He got injured in the line of duty and is a brave son of nation who deserves respect and care. I have talked to him over the phone and he is in need of help and I have set up this page to help raise money for Mushtaq and show him that we care for his courage and sacrifice.
Some people have asked me " With so many people like Constable Mushtaq in Paksitan what difference will it make helping one of them". I have the following story for them.
Once, on ancient Earth, there was a human boy walking along a beach. There had just been a storm, and starfish had been scattered along the sands. The boy knew the fish would die, so he began to fling the fish to the sea. But every time he threw a starfish, another would wash ashore. An old Earth man happened along and saw what the child was doing. He called out, "Boy, what are you doing?" "Saving the starfish!" replied the boy. " But your attempts are useless, child! Every time you save one, another one returns, often the same one! You can't save them all, so why bother trying? Why does it matter, anyway?" called the old man. "The boy thought about this for a while, a starfish in his hand; he answered, "Well, it matters to this one." And then he flung the starfish into the welcoming sea.
