Human waste is being used in drinking water in this City

Pakistan which is hotbed for terrorism related activities and has perhaps the weakest passport in the world after Sudan is battling with more home grown domestic problems along with terrorism.
Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Saqib Nisar has expressed dissatisfaction over the prevalent conditions of availability water in Sindh.

He made the comments during a hearing regarding non-functioning water filtration and treatment plants in Karachi. Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and Former Mayor-Karachi Mustafa Kamal were summoned, according to Express News.

“The situation [in Sindh] is very painful for me,” he said. “Human waste is being used in drinking water.”

 
Chiding Shah for the incompetence of Sindh government in providing clean drinking water, the CJP asked Shah if he was ready to drink the water.

In August, a report submitted to the judicial commission constituted by the SC to investigate authorities’ failure to provide clean drinking water and poor sanitation conditions in Sindh, headed by Justice Muhammad Iqbal Kalhoro, found up to 90 per cent of water supplied in Karachi is unfit for human consumption due to the presence of bacterial contamination.The report was based on laboratory analysis of water samples collected from surface and underground water sources from different parts of the metropolis.

The prosecutor presented court with a video showing the current state of treatment plants in Karachi. The CJP said that the video presented in the courtroom should be televised by all media channels to spread awareness among the masses.

However, the Sindh CM rejected the video, saying it exaggerated the conditions. “If I get the opportunity, I will present another video to court soon,” said Shah.

Responding to Shah, the CJP remarked that the Sindh CM may reject the video but he should read the commission report. “Review the gravity of the situation by reading the commission report,” he said. “Try to find solutions through it.”

“Do not take this negatively,” the CJP said. “We will find out who was responsible for past mistakes in the next phase.”
