Cricket legend Wasim Akram’s wife Shaniera Akram turned to Twitter on Tuesday to draw people’s attention towards the horrific condition of Karachi’s Clifton beach, after she found syringes and medical waste on beach.

Shaniera, in a series of tweets, requested people and media to take action on the issue until the beach is safe. “I have stayed silent for too long. Every TV channel needs to be running this now. You have a duty of care to protect the lives of the people of Karachi and tell them Clifton beach, as it stands, is totally unsafe for anyone,” she said in one of her tweet.

She also posted multiple pictures and videos of the beach which showed open needle syringes, medical wastes among other things that are extremely dangerous for human health. “I have walked on Clifton beach everyday for the last four years and I have never been scared until today. This beach needs to be shut down now,” she wrote.
