Shehzad Roy Concerned Over Karachi Ranked as World’s Worst City To Live

Leading singer Shehzad Roy, who is active in education, hygiene and other social issues in the country, has expressed concern over the inclusion of Karachi in the list of uninhabitable cities in the world.

Yesterday, he tweeted a picture of himself on the micro-blogging website Twitter in which he was seen standing in front of a sewerage drain in Karachi.

In the caption of the photo, Shehzad Roy wrote, “Every day I try to save my city Karachi, but according to The Economic Intelligence, Karachi is considered one of the most unlivable cities in the world. I can’t say anything about Karachi, but nature and the environment will not forgive us,” he wrote.

Earlier, Shaniera Akram, wife of former Pakistan cricket team fast bowler also commented on the news, saying that all the 250 million citizens who consider Karachi as their home are respectable.

“What our city residents have given and donated to this city over the years is extraordinary,” she said. “

“Karachi is alive because of the hearts of its people. It is the fifth worst city in the world to live in, but it is number one when it comes to philanthropy, charity and goodwill,” she said.

It is to be noted that the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), the Research and Analysis Division of the British magazine The Economist, in its recent report, once again criticized Karachi for its extremely unsatisfactory standard of living and counted the fifth worst city.

Karachi ranks 168th out of 173 cities in the list, which is better than Algeria, Tripoli, Lagos and Damascus.

According to the list, Karachi’s healthcare score is 33.3, it scored 35.2 for culture and environment, 66.7 for education and 51.8 in infrastructure.

It is to be noted that even before this, singer Shehzad Roy and Wasim Akram’s wife Shaniera Akram have been raising their voices on issues related to Karachi in particular.
