What Uber says is relevant to Pakistan?
In a statement by Uber,it says the truck attack suspect passed a background check conducted by the car hire company.
US media has picked this issue and the criticism on the company's check process is being made across the whole media including social media.
Pakistan a front line country against terrorism is an ideal place to hold such background checks for people applying for driving licences.
Anyone with a little know how of driving and a good contact at license issuing authority can get hold of a driving licence hence be eligible to come onto road as licensed driver.In a situation like this,no heed is paid to the applicant's background as to determine his past data of residence,travel and contacts.
This is high time that voice is raised in this regard from all quarters of Pakistani media.
