Karachi salvages city of lights status: DG Rangers


KARACHI July 16 (TNS): Karachi has reclaimed its status as the city of lights, which is flourishing and whose citizens are no longer afraid for their lives, says Director General Sindh Rangers Maj-Gen Mohammed Saeed.

“Today people from every walk of life are happy and businesses are flourishing,” Saeed said while speaking at a youth festival held at People’s Football Stadium in Lyari area on Sunday.

He said participation of a large number of people in the festival was a sign of revival of law and order in an area earlier regarded as a den of crimes and gang war.

He urged people to monitor their children’s activities so as to make them a helpful citizen of the society. Students should be given lectures on ethics in schools. He appealed to the people of Lyari to help law enforcers and send their children to schools.

He paid rich tribute to Abdul Sattar Edhi (late), a philanthropist and social worker and recalled his services for the humanity. He asked the people to keep an eye on their surroundings and inform Rangers about any suspicious activity in their localities.

Abdul Sattar Edhi’s son Faisal Edhi also attended the function. In the festival, famous artists like Shehzad Roy, Shazia Khushk and Jawad Ahmed also performed.
