KARACHI, Thursday, January 30, 2020 (WNP): It’s been around five months to when Shaniera Akram shared the disgusting medical waste that had been dumped at Karachi’s Sea View beach.
“Our beach is a bio-hazard zone and needs to be shut down immediately. I am so sorry to the people including myself who use and love our beach but this is beyond safe,” She had previously said.
From then to now, Shaniera had joined forces with many to take action. Volunteers got together with the help of Sindh Government to clean up the beach. And while it looked like a Herculean task, they have managed to get the job done for now.
Husband Wasim Akram took to Twitter to commend the efforts and share the happy news that Clifton beach is as good as new.
He attached his video with a note saying, “Thanks to Shaniera for initiating this needful campaign and to all government officials and massive thank you to workers who come there every morning to make it look the way it is now.”

Said Akram, “This could be anywhere in the world. It’s a beautiful beach, it’s a clean beach. Credit to all of the people who have been involved.”
“This is proof that if we all unite and make a resolution, be it as a neighbourhood or as a nation, we can achieve it. So well done Karachi, we got a clean beach.”
A very happy Shaniera shared the post adding, “I’m so proud!! What a city we have!”
