Mismanagement, lack of security unfold in Zakat distribution

Distribution of clothes for Zakat ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr is going on in the country amid mismanagement and lack of security.
Some 15 to 20 poor women and men wearing shabby clothes were seen trying to enter into a shop through its half-opened door at East Tejturi Bazar in Dhaka’s Farmgate area to collect Zakat clothes.
The distributors did not probably bother to maintain any system to ensure security of these poor people, including also some old people, who were trying to get their much expected Zakat by pushing one another.
Men were not giving any space to the women first fearing to be deprived of the ‘gift’ distributed by a private company probably.  
On being asked about the security of these people, an employee of the company told The Daily Star that they didn’t have any other option except keeping the door half-opened.Some people have been seen very pleased after getting the ‘gift’ of Zakat clothes while others were seen fighting to get theirs.

However, he failed to reply what would happen if any life is lost in any untoward incident.
It is definitely a good gesture that any individual or private institution wants to help the poor. But none can ignore the security concern for these underprivileged people.
