Culture of ‘sifarish’


Imtiaz Essa Halepoto
This refers to prevailing deteriorated system in government institutions. The employments in public sectors are just advertised in paper. However seletion of vacant seats is filled by sifarish culture. In sindh, highly qualified students sit idle in the hope of employment for whole life. But there exists huge sifarish. It, consequently, sheds negative indicators upon students and society. Sifarish culture also weakens literacy rate in province. Students heavily invest their money in getting higher education. But when they are idle, other people bother them. Sifarish culture lessens potential, talent and confidence of students. In Sifarish culture, mostly uneducated and less experienced candidates are appointed at prestigious positions. They not only damage institution`s reputation, but they also fight and take huge bribes from common people. In Sindh, one can see how corrupt system is prevailing everywhere. Even private employments are given to sifarshee people which is unbelievable. Students goes despair when they are not given their due, even after qualifying whole procedure. I applied in jobs more than 12 times in 2019 for different posts, upon seeing the procedure led by institutions. I went despair and did not apply in 2020, even single time. Youth is not unemployed due to low resources. But it is because of Sifarish Culture. Government should introduce the methods to cope with Sifarish Culture.
