Pakistan is a country where mobile phones are often used and if they were order not to use it, so what will happen?
People were cursing Rehman Malik and Government because of whom mobile phones went silent from 7:00 am to 10:00 am in the urban areas of Pakistan on Monday. The reason for shutting down the cellular networks given by him is chance of major attack on Eid Day, majorly celebrated on Monday in Pakistan.
Mostly young people gave the swearing remarks on this act. It is because they were unable to stay in touch with their loved ones on the big occasion which they achieved by doing bundles of SMS’es on the Eid and Chand Raat ( A day before eid). Also the day before Eid few of the networks were impeded.
This was the very first time when people after Namaz-e-Eid and after hugs and greet rush towards their homes and switch on their computers and Internets and greet their relatives and friends on social sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Thanks to the government of No Load Shedding @ that moment.
Many people who uses video calls on Skype to talk with friends and relatives dwelling far away. They also use it to talk with people who lives near by.
As the Clock Strikes 10:00 am on Monday it was time for Mobile Phones to rung and sooner the SMS were started flowing towards cell phones. And it was time for people to get engaged on the phone and greeting Eid Mubarak.
Many people called the idea nothing but another way of disturbing them. But few of them told me that they were felling pretty relaxed as no tension of replying back and receiving phones and get an ample time of 3 hours to stay out of touch with a ring rong gadget.
Somewhat I didn’t feel too much annoyed from this act on the day of Eid as compare to Load Shedding of electricity and CNG as I am not addict of a mobile phone. But may be this was annoying for those who can not live without cell phones and there are many of them.
Happy Eid Mubarak!
