What happened at Karachi eat festival?
For someone who hasn’t missed Karachi Eat for the last five years, the 2023 run of the city’s biggest food festival concluding in shambles wasn’t much of a shock. On the last day of Karachi Eat’s 10th installment, the attendees shared harrowing accounts of harassment and groping.
Eyewitnesses at Beach View Park recalled one of the entrances being breached by stags as several miscreants entered the premises without tickets. Videos of the unruly crowd went viral right after, where many called out the organisers for a mismanaged event. “Gates crashed. Families were harassed,” Salman Muhammad, whose near and dear were present when the mishap happened.
“Young Stunners refused to perform and everything was called off. The management just wrapped everything up. The security was equal to none.” He concluded, “It’s unfortunate, we have become uncivilized ghosts.”
