People Are Angry About This News Cameraman Passing Away Because He Couldn't Afford Treatment

By Maryam Khalid | 11 Oct, 2019

The media industry may seem glistening to a whole lot of us. We assume that everyone earns big money. But all that glitters is not gold. Amidst all the big names, there are still people who struggle to survive.

Mohammad Nasir was a cameraman for Geo News. He sustained a knee injury while covering a story on PIA’s privatization issue. Later he was diagnosed with cancer and, unfortunately, passed away.

It was highlighted how a whole healthy person was reduced to mere skin and bones because he was not able to afford treatment.

The heartbreaking part of all this is the family he has left behind. With their sole breadwinner gone, the family is suffering financially.

His son had to give up school because the family was not able to pay the fees due to the sad demise of the head of the family.

Some people are pointing out the fact that if the company itself took notice at the right time, a lot of funds could have been raised for his treatment.

However, some people have stepped forward to help in whatever capacity they can.

It’s unfortunate that a large majority has to live on such low (if not lower) wages – so much so, that they cannot afford to bear the expenses for basic healthcare, let alone expensive treatments.

What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments.
