This signboard is painted on a wall at the Sukhan Police Station, Karachi.

This is what the folks at the Thanna believe are (or should be) the qualities of the Police Force in Pakistan.

The spelling mistakes (e.g., Courages) can be merely a case of Pinglish (we ourselves are not immune to these). But I do wonder why the word “Obedient” is there. Obedient to whom? And is that really a quality you want in your police force?

What do you think of this list. Are these the qualities we want in our police force?

Photographer Huma Imtiaz has generously allowed us to share this photo here.

    ‘A good joke’ – Do I need to say it?

    Actually, it’s a joke with the people of Pakistan, a mockery at our system.

    Well well we’ve such brilliant brains here in Pakistan and especially in the police department. Its a marvelous piece of writing no doubt, but a very hearty joke as well.

    “Efficient” is the one that really throws me off. I can imagine them being polite, obedient, loyal, intelligent and even “courages”, but efficient? that’s the funniest one of them all personally.

    The correct Urdu word for “intelligent” is “zaheen.”
    “Courages,” can not be dismissed as “Pinglish.” This probably is a genuine spelling error… (Someone “courageous” needs to
    report this error to the “authorities.” )

    (2) Obedient? Did they mean to say, “Law-abiding?”
