10.  SULEMAN DRIVING HIS JEEP

 

STORY: last week, when hundreds of commuters were stranded due to harsh weather, many of them with women, children and elderly, Suleman Khan decided to help them out.

The Quetta-Zhob highway was shut down due to severe snowfall in the Kuchlak, Ziarat Cross, Khanozai, and Kan Mehtarzai areas of the southwestern Balochistan province.

Khan, 30, a local man from the Pishin, was depicted as a hero after he saved the lives of more than a 100 people stuck on snow-jammed roads of the area.

He drove his jeep to the areas where the condition of the roads was so worst that led hundreds of vehilcles were stranded on the snowy ways, with passengers left vulnerable in the harsh weather without food supplies or clothes.

Khan rescued several passengers by driving them to safety in his own car, but in a gesture of kindness also opened his home to them for food and shelter without any assistance from the authorities.

Suleman Khan while talking to VNA said that he did everything for God. He says his mother always taught him to help others during their time of need.

“It is Allah’s blessing upon me that He has chosen me to help people. During my childhood, my mother would bless me upon doing good deeds. So it is perhaps her training that I have saved people. I am very happy. I feel a lot of contentment after serving the humanity,”Khan told VNA.

Khan was invited by Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan who presented him a shield for his heroism and bravery.

He said he didn’t want to be seen on social media websites, however, someone shot videos and shared them with others.

Khan said he was praised by many, hoping that his good deed would also motivate others to help people around them.

Prime minister Imran Khan applauded his bravery in his tweet.

“The whole nation is proud of Suleman Khan who showed great courage and selflessness to help people stranded in the snow,”the tweet said.
