Actress Minal Khan, who recently took a beach walk in Karachi’s Seaview seems unhappy with the current situation of the beach.

Taking to Twitter, Minal Khan posted a picture of herself at Karachi beach in which the beach looks filthy and add a caption, “Karachi/Kachra beach on a rainy day!” 

Clifton Beach, in the city of Karachi, is a favourite with local residents. However, following heavy rains, four of five kilometres of its usually golden sands had become covered in rubbish, with the hazardous medical waste hidden in between plastic bags.

It is not the first time when a celebrity has raised a voice against it or criticised the situation. Celebrities like Wasim Akram and his wife have raised their voices several times. According to a report, about a third of the 13,000 tonnes of rubbish thrown out by the city’s residents every day ends up in the drains.

Another report, this time by news channel Al Jazeera, pointed to rubbish dumps near the city where waste was piled “several storeys high”, while also showing how open sewers were flowing underneath a carpet of rubbish into the Arabian Sea – the same sea which laps Clifton Beach.
