Activist Shaniera Akram has always been praising all things Pakistan from its people to food, culture and the natural beauty. She and husband Wasim Akram recently went out for a stroll to Karachi’s Sea View Beach and were disappointed by its untidy appearance.
She took the opportunity to call attention to the overall state of the city with heaps of garbage, dilapidated buildings and roads.
“All I see is rubbish and people breaking the law. Shops with piles of rubbish, sewerage tankers offloading in the ocean, and housing blocks looking like they are falling apart because no one wants to paint or fix them. There is no pride anymore Karachi. It’s like we have given up caring,”
