In this thread I compare Bahria Town (Karachi) to other cities, local and international, to relay the spatial scale of 'legalized' fraud involved. Try to also grasp that all of the areas in these cities fall under one developer.

On one hand, top authorities are adamant on removing encroachments along Karachi Circular Railway, not resettling the most marginalized, rendering several homeless. On the other, they've essentially 'fined' fraud of this scale.
"No one man should have all that power". As a millennial i'll conclude this with a meme.
