‘It will be a record’: Team Sar-e-Aam announces to remove graffiti from Karachi walls
In another first, Team Sar-e-Aam led by host Iqrar-ul-Hassan is on a mission to remove graffiti from the walls of Karachi with the help of 15,000 volunteers.
The activity, planned for Quaid-e-Azam’s birthday, December 25, is aimed at removing omnipresent graffiti from Quaid-e-Azam’s tomb to University of Karachi.
“We have called our 15, 000 registered volunteers from Karachi for the task, we have formed 34 teams who will clean the walls in their respective areas,” said Iqrar-ul-Hassan.
The Sar-e-Aam host said that a paints brand’s Corporate Social Responsibility Department is providing all the paint required to clean or repaint city’s walls while a number of other welfare organizations have announced to join the activity promising to provide food, transportation and other facilities.
“According to our research, if we achieve our goal, it will be record of removing graffiti from walls as no such activity was ever done at such a huge scale,” claimed Iqrar.
The Sar-e-Aam host added that he chose December 25 for the activity as it was Quaid’s Day and Quaid’s city which is being cleaned.
He also invited the city’s general populace to join him in his mission named ‘Karachi Chamkay Ga’ (Karachi will shine).
Iqrar-ul-Hassan’s ‘Sar-e-Aam’ show is famous for exposing corrupt and unauthentic products/public services like fake amils (faith healers), poorly manufactured products disguising famous company names, etc.
The episodes differ greatly, episodes exposing dark sides of the community are also aired. The general idea of the program is to show the public whatever is happening under their eyes so that they are aware of those guilty of these crimes.
