Recently I visited the Expo Centre in Karachi, to attend an exhibition. I was horrified by the condition of the mosque and washrooms. Washrooms were very dirty, and the mosque is located in a corner and is not in good condition. One cannot find this hidden mosque unless one searches and ask for it. Many exhibitions take place in the Expo-Center and I wish that the management would take better care of the bathrooms and putting up signs to guide people. Cleanliness is an important part of our lives and must be maintained in public areas. Billions of dollars trade takes place here and we get many foreigners, who visit the Expo- Center, this is the face of Pakistan that they see. The parking lot needs some work done as well. I am sure that the management is earning large bucks but work must be done to maintain this area as well.
