Sada Malik: me and my family was shifted to Islamabad in 1978 when my father transferred from Karachi to Islamabad. Since than we are living there, it was very peaceful city until Gen. Musharraf era 1999. Afterward problem was started, now a days street robbery, home broken, car stolen, assaults and harassing women in street is very common. Specially motor cyclists are much threat to pedestrians by snatching pursues, mobile phones, jewellery and looting on gun points by youngers drug addicted. Walking alone after dark is not recommended and leaving car parking in street and main gate unlock any time is dangerous.

I'm living in Islamabad since 2001 and find it very safe city, Mr crime reporter can you give any report of house breaking or theft in the whole month, yes car stealing you can say yes. I love this city, I understand people just give otherwise opinion because it's a fashion in Pakistan to react in a negative way. As one of comment shows, Taliban, Alqaida minded people are living here, it's ridiculous.

I also live in Islamabad. but honestly speaking that it is not so much safe city. because here there are many areas where afghans and taliban and al qaida minded religious people live here. even in your neighbours. there is so much corrupt politicians and land lord people live here and they have arranged their personal security. there are so much police check points and security barriers here in islamabad. you can go safely and freely to go embassies, big shopping centers, parks, colleges and universities

Dear Writer,
Thanks for the information and i have a suggestion for you too. My suggestion is that we must write the reason of increasing crime too. This will help the readers a lot.
