Bahria Town con­tro­ver­sies

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - TOOBA KHAN

De­spite the fact that the real es­tate agency along with its own­ers is in­volved in dif­fer­ent fraud­u­lent cases, peo­ple still trust them and in­vest in their il­le­gal busi­ness. They struc­tured a huge em­pire in few years and named it as ‘devel­op­ment’ of the coun­try, hid­ing the re­al­ity that the land is ac­quired il­le­gally, and the plots are sold at a price far more than their ac­tual worth.

On the other hand the owner him­self, along­with his fam­ily mem­bers, is in­volved in var­i­ous con­tro­ver­sies. How can one trust a per­son or com­pany like this? The in­creas­ing sales and profit of the agency clearly shows the sta­tus con­scious­ness of our so­ci­ety, the peo­ple who in­vested their money in Bahria Town didn’t bother to in­ves­ti­gate about its authentication, and were fas­ci­nated only by the in­fras­truc­ture which they thought is enough. Are th­ese peo­ple blind­folded? It’s high time; they should wake up and save their money. —Karachi
