Pakistan’s summer season is a nine months long scorching and humid period of the year. It is good and encouraging that personas feel for the nation’s personnel and students who are restrained in a piece of killing polyester fabric, called uniform. It’s way too hot to be anywhere but inside, and unlike some employers and schools who refuse to acknowledge the issue, Meesha Shafi and Aagha Ali not only recognize the problem but are making it sure to change the trauma going on for long. Meesha Shafi & Aagha Ali Exhibits True Concerns for Uniformed Personnel amid Heatwave.
We are glad that the stars of the entertainment industry have concerns for the school-going angels and a staff appointed outside the corporate offices and institutions standing killing sunshine. It is striking that they are using their platforms to advocate against punitive working conditions. Be it, security guards or delivery workers, it is important to adapt uniforms according to the weather, and realize that people need to be contented in the workplace and students on the study desk.
Meesha Shafi & Aagha Ali Exhibits True Concerns for Uniformed Personnel amid Heatwave
Ali used social media to express his distress for school administrations that called children in to kick off the academic year earlier despite the scorching heat.
He said irately,
“The heat is just killing these days,” he wrote. “I had to stop shooting as it was 44 degrees in Lahore and even in Islamabad today. Please have some mercy on the kids. Start schools after their summer vacations. This one week just for the fee? Have some shame, have some mercy!”
Shafi also discussed the heat and said,
“In such weather, a lighter cloth such as cotton would prove to be a much better option for uniforms. Polyester uniforms have no place in our region. None,” she said. “Normalise cotton/muslin shalwar kurtas. School kids, guards…whoever.”

Given the vagueness of the pandemic, the well-being of our students should be our main precedence and schools should try to linger online erudition for as long as the weather switches to some bearable state.
