KARACHI -The ever-rising inflation and severe economic woes failed to fade away the passion of Karachiites for setting up traditional roadside 'Iftar stalls during the holy month of Ramazan. The Karachiites continued to make arrangements voluntarily for 'Iftar to facilitate the commuters and deprived people to break their fast on different city roads. The metropolis is witnessing hundreds of charity-based Iftar stalls along major roads set up by people from all walks of life with a view to get the blessings of Allah Almighty during the holy month of Ramazan. It is an event where hundreds of thousands commuters and passers-by avail the facility of free Iftar. The tradition of street Iftar has now spread across the metropolis without the discrimination of caste and creed and financial status. Every part of the metropolis is witnessing hundreds of Iftar Dastark-hwans on regular basis during the entire month of Ramazan. A careful estimate suggests that thousands of small and big Iftar Dastarkhwans are set up in every Ramazan in almost all parts of the city. Though, the price-hike, at large, has disturbed every person of the country, Karac-hiites did not ignore their norm of hospitality, especially during the holy month of Ramazan and continued arranging roadside voluntarily Iftar Dastar-khwans to facilitate the passengers and deprived citizens in the city. Philanthropists, traders associations, welfare organizations, wealthy people and community based organizations have set up stalls at every major street and outside the markets of the metropolis including II Chundirgar Road, MA Jinnah Road, Shahra-e-Faisal, Shah Waliullah Road, Abul Hassan Isphani Road, University Road, Shahra-e-Quaideen, Tariq Road, Zaibu Nisa Street, Khayaban-e-Shamshir, Main Saba, Gizri, Sea View, Rashid Minhas Road, Saphoora Chowrangi, Malir, Model Colony Hyderi Market, Meena Bazaar Kari-mabad, Laloo Khait, Five Star Chowrangi, Samama Market and other areas. On the other hand, citizens are also participating enthusiastically in the relief of floods victims, who are living in different camps of Karachi in miserable conditions. A large number of people spend their money for the help of flood victims instead of setting up the Iftar stalls. Iqtedar Raza, who usually setup a Iftar Stall at Model Colony, said that this year they had decided not to setup Iftar stall and provided the food to the affected people of floods.
