We have long been taught that electric charges are neither created nor destroyed. But somehow it is okay to destroy two oppositely charged particles at once ! Why is that so?
Let's just take a look at electron-positron annihilation; Two equally oppositely charged particle are bombarded into each other, both are instantly destroyed (lose their existence) and gamma ray photons emerge. It is certainly convenient to say that at $t$ second the net charge in system was 0 and at $t+1$ second it is also zero. But certainly it also raises the question what if you observe only a positron or an electron, in observed system certainly charge will not be conserved however overall it maybe.
It jumps out and say that you cannot destroy individual charges, but if you get 2 equally and oppositely charged particles we can destroy both ! (kind of Romeo-Juliet) Then why is the fundamental postulate of conservation of charge that /charge can neither be created nor destroyed"? Since, clearly it can be destroyed, just in pairs (also created in pairs)
