Caretaker Pm Launches Zainab Alert, Response & Recovery App
Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar launched Zainab Alert, Response and Recovery App (ZARRA) at an event in Islamabad on Monday in connection with World Children’s Day.
The ZARRA App is a mobile application that can be used to report missing and abducted children.
The App will allow users to upload a photo of the child, provide information about the child's disappearance, and share the alert with others.
The App, which is connected with all the police stations in the country, will also allow users to track the progress of the investigation and receive updates on the child's status.
Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar expressed the confidence that the initiative will serve as an impregnable fortress to safeguard the children of Pakistan.
He said timely issuance of alerts pertaining to the missing and abducted children will undoubtedly facilitate the law enforcement agencies in their relentless pursuit to swiftly recover these innocent souls.
The Prime Minister reaffirmed unwavering commitment to safeguard the children from all kinds of harm including abuse, violence, homelessness and abduction.
He said our commitment to the protection of children stems from the profound understanding that they are the torch bearers of our future.
Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar said we firmly believe that every child deserves a nurturing environment, access to quality education, healthcare and the opportunity to develop to full potential.
He said the government remains steadfast in its dedication to upholding the UN convention on the rights of the child. By empowering children and advocating for their rights, we are building a stronger and more equitable society where they can thrive and contribute meaningfully to the progress of the nation.
Expressing his strong resentment on the senseless killing of children in Gaza, the Prime Minister said this appalling and atrocious child holocaust must stop immediately.
He said we are trying along with our global partners from the platform of OIC and others to pressurize the western hemisphere led by the United States that some sort of sanity must prevail.
Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar stressed that this war should come to an end and the cessation of violence is an immediate target.
In his remarks, Minister for Human Rights, Khalil George said the children are the future and asset of Pakistan and it is our collective responsibility to work towards protection of their fundamental rights.
