  • vERY SAD, ALLAH PAK WAQAS KO JANNATUL FIRDOUS ME JAGA ATA FARMAI….HAM MUSALMAN HO KAR YE KIA KAR RAHE HO, APNI OR BHAI KI HIFAZAT HAM PAR FARZ. STATE KO ZABARDAST ACTION LENA HO GA

  • kal karachi mei uber ka driver mara hay hassan square k kareeb news pe dekha, mujhay to koe conspiracy lag rahi hy careem uber ko budnaam kernay ki..

    • sharif family’s al-baraq taxi service is effected because of careem & uber but this does not look like conspiracy they have many other ways to tackle them like they issued a notification to ban this service

  • Careem and uber both are quite good additions to our public transport system. But such incidents are on the rise and they must evolve themselves to ensure security matters. Moreover drivers must have something to protect themselves in such scenarios. Last but not the atleast some sort of insurance or compensation must be there for affectees families… A heavy compensation, after all, this life is very precious and must not go like this….

    • Company said that Muhammad Waqas was off-duty and was out on a personal errand when he lost his life during the unforeseen incident.

      Read this :/

  • Instead of being Sad, He will not alive again the question is…Is there any Investigation stated by the Careem or FIA locked???… Where is the role of Cameras Installed? Maan ny apny half zindagi iss baachy per laga dii aur yeh silla milla..

  • If he or his vehicle were insured he don’t have to resist and risk his life. And even after the tragedy his family will only suffer emotionally and not financially. Money is no way an alternative of a living soul but one should take steps to ensure his family’s betterment even after his departure. Be realistic.

    • Very nice message and point for this ,,,this is very important ? mark infront of CAREEM company,,,

    • Like, insurance companies ALWAYS return you the money against such incidents. Right.

  • There is no strict law in Pakistan no safety and security for public, same old thana culture. Careem or Uber should provide life insurance/ car insurance

      • Dude they have used the featured image of careem logo. The app automatically uses the featured image along side the title.
        What other image they would have used?

  • “Company said that Muhammad Waqas was off-duty and was out on a personal errand when he lost his life during the unforeseen incident”
    Lame justification from Company. They are blindly employing partners and getting huge revenues. As far as Captains are concerned, no clear insurance policy or workers welfare benefit exists. Careem/Ubar need to focus on ETHICAL aspects of business also.

    • The captains are not workers or employees of Careem. They are just using an app and are self employeed.
      If someone using Google Maps or Gmail app or Youtube and get killed does’nt mean Google have to give compensation to the family.

      • Workers working in industries gets protection from Workers Welfare Fund. Children educational assistance, hospital treatment. Company deduct monthly from employee and adding its own share give to WWF org. Daewoo also doing same for their employees. Careem and Uber also need to adopt such model. Its suggestion, Many better solutions exist. Government should also make regulations to control this new business. Captains are representatives of Careem/Uber on the road, they cannot close their eyes on such incidents.
