There are times when those people who we thought are very close to us are never found around us when we are in trouble and then there are those strangers who surprisingly saves us when we are in trouble. Same is the case of this girl Raabea Hasan who called a Careem captain as she wanted to go to Sindhi Muslim for an Iftar get together.

Here is what Raabea Hasan wrote:

“So, I keep reading stories about bad Careem experiences; I want to share mine too which is possibly one of the most horrifying experiences of my life but due to the help of a kind Careem driver it didn’t cause me any harm. This happened yesterday, while I was going for iftar at SMCHS and requested my Careem captain to stop at an atm as I needed cash. My driver stopped at standard chartered bank at main road on Sindhi Muslim, while I was waiting for the atm to be vacant two men who had the most typical and clichéd mugger looks came out of nowhere, as soon as I registered them, thankfully the guy who was using the atm came out and somehow I sprinted inside the atm booth and locked myself inside. I waited for a while as I didn’t have the courage to come out, then I looked from under the door and saw my driver waiting outside the atm too. The driver had looked like a decent respectable guy so I decided to come out after reciting all the ayats I could remember at that moment, my driver walked side by side to me like an elder brother until I was safe back in the car and then casually said, ‘those guys looked like muggers so I came out, I hope you didn’t mind’. I didn’t mind in fact I was extremely grateful to him for his gesture.

 My point is that we are often too quick in pointing out flaws in service providers and don’t take out enough time to thank them for their help and kindness. Maybe this wasn’t a near robbery experience as I’m assuming, but nonetheless this guy took a risk to ensure my safety, that too near iftar timings when most people don’t even bother stopping at signal lights. I really hope, this guy gets rewarded for his kindness. I’m attaching his profile here, so you all know you have a reliable captain if you catch a ride with him.

Umer Owais bhai, zindabad. Pakistan needs people like you. If anyone from Careem is reading this; please please give him some appreciation for how honestly he was carrying out his job and bhai, inko please bonus bhi do for what he did. Issi tarhan appreciate kareinge to yeh services behtar hongi. Koi Careem ka employee ya banda jo yeh parhraha ho, please iss maamle main dekhein aur inko bonus ya kuch token of appreciation dein, thanks!”

She even shared the details of the captain:

She further wished that Careem management should award him for his bravery and such kind gesture.

Soon, Careem’s owner Junaid Iqbal shared a post on Facebook, thanking Raaabea and said that he will be rewarding the Careem captain:

We should appreciate the cab driver for being brave and responsible enough to look after the safety and security of his clients. Such people are hard to find. Hats off to Raabea as well for coming forward and sharing this positive news not all the cab services are unsafe.
