It has been around five months when Shaniera Akram shared the disgusting condition of Karachi’s Sea View beach, with full of garbage and medical waste.
“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 tweeted regarding the beach.
DO NOT go to the beach and try to clean it, this is biohazardous waste and needs to be a restricted area and cleaned by professionals. The sea and beach needs to be declared unsafe for everyone immediately— Shaniera Akram (@iamShaniera) September 3, 2019
After her tweet went viral, Shaniera joined forces with many to take action. Sindh Government along with many volunteers got together to help cleaning the beach. At that time, it seemed like a Herculean task, but they somehow, managed to get the job done for now.
Wasim Akram, took to Twitter and congratulated his wife Shaniera for her efforts and for starting the beach clean-up campaign. He shared the happy news that the beach is much clean than ever. 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.”

“This is proof that if we all unite and make a resolution, be it as a neighborhood or as a nation, we can achieve it. So well done Karachi, we got a clean beach,” Akram further said.
A very happy Shaniera shared the post adding,
