The monsoon in Pakistan is currently in its resting stage but it is said to be the calm before the actual shake. Rains in Sindh have always been a debatable topic as every year, while the whole country faces extreme showers, clouds in Sindh show no positive sign. Every monsoon season, rains open up the pandora box of the carelessness of the provincial government which results in massive devastation. Like every year, this time too, nobody paid any heed to open electricity units which resulted in brutal deaths of several citizens.

Recently, the General Secretary of JDC Zafar Abbas along with Television personality Waqar Zaka visited Fahad’s house to show their condolences and help them get justice. The parents told that people from K-Electric later came to our house and just sad that they’ll create a report on the tragic incident. The family is a resident of Jail Chowrangi area and lives in a government quarter.
The family receives threats when they go for filing an FIR!
Currently, Aamir Liaquat is the MNA of that area and whenever the parents try to lodge a First Information Report (FIR), they start getting threats to leave the government quarter. Till now, no political personality has visited them or helped them out. Fahad’s parents, Zafar Abbas and Waqar Zaka are now appealing the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Asif Saeed Khosa to take action against K-Electric and serve justice to every parent who lost their family members because of the negligence of the private organization.
Heavy rainfalls predicted from Friday to Monday in Sindh!
According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), extremely heavy rains will again start from Friday to Monday in Karachi. The Met Office has issued a warning and asked the citizens to stay alert and take precautionary measures during the rains. Karachites are now just hoping that these rains serve as ‘rehmat’ instead of becoming ‘zehmat’ like always. Even after Met’s official statement, K-Electric hasn’t paid any heed to it and no proper maintenance has started.
