Non-profit organisation Fixit, which highlights and fixes social, civic and political issues faced by the common man of Pakistan, threw sewerage water at the gate of Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Murad Shah’s official residence in protest of the dirty water that constantly remains outside houses of the port city’s poor.
In the video, around a dozen Fixit members and volunteers can be seen taking buckets full of dirty, contaminated water from gutters and throwing it on the gate of the provincial chief minister’s residence.
To be fair, they had warned about the situation beforehand as this video below shows.
In this video, a man is seen standing in a street of district Malir which is filled with the disgusting contaminated gutter water.
According to the details, the area has been in this condition for the past nine years and many politicians who win from this area have been using the common man by playing on his emotions by promising to fix the issue; however, they conveniently ignore the people’s plight once they get elected.
Later on the Fixit facebook page, screenshots of the protest activity were shared with the caption: When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes a duty.
Fixit came to prominence in 2016, when Karachi citizens spray-painted the portrait of then Sindh chief minister Qaim Ali Shah next to gaping potholes, ditches and heaps of piles on the side of Karachi’s much-travelled University Road to draw his attention towards his duties that he had been neglecting.
