Rainfall in Karachi: Celebrities raise concern over current situation

The aftermaths of heavy showers of rain have disrupted lives in Karachi. Pakistani celebrities have raised their concerns about the city’s current situation.

Karachitis are facing long hours of load shedding, traffic, and urban flooding. Over 12 people have also died due to rainfall-related incidents.

Actors Ayesha Omar and Ali Rehman Khan took to Twitter to raise their concern.

Ali tweeted, “Karachi goes through the same bittersweet predicament every time it rains, every single year for as long as I can remember. How does the largest city in Pakistan have the worst planning & development in the country? We all know the answer, we just wish for it to change,”

Ayesha tweeted that she loves the rain, but she is worried about the struggles people face. “I’m torn. I love, love the rain but it kills me to see what my city and its people have to go through, after. It’s heartbreaking. It’s so unfair”.

Former cricketer Wasim Akram also shared his thoughts regarding the intense situation of Karachi. He urged everyone that we need to fix our beautiful city. “Seeing the footage of Karachi underwater and my heart goes out to all affected. I can’t say I’m not surprised that this has happened yet again. A wake-up call? No, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed period! We need to fix our beautiful city”.
