Some people believe jinns are terrorizing the motorcyclists passing under ‘their’ tree at Shaheed-e-Millat road in Karachi. Is this really a supernatural occurrence or is there a logical explanation behind the sporadic incidents?
A Twitter user claimed that;
“Jinns live in a tree on Karachi’s Shaheed-e-Millat road, Karachi that knock over passing motorcyclists,”

Is there any truth to this claim? Well, it is certain that something is affecting the stability of motorcyclists riding over that patch of the road, under ‘the tree’ in question. Is it possible that a supernatural force is causing the motorcycle riders to fall on the road?
If you believe, jinns are causing the haphazard accidents at the busy road, sorry folks it’s just physics at play. Turns out the patch of road in question is actually damaged and uneven. So when an already less stable, two-wheel vehicle passes over the bumpy road, it loses its balance and tumbles to the ground.
The slightly uneven road might seem harmless but for a motorcyclist going at a medium pace or faster, it can be life-threatening. Especially, if caught in the onslaught of incoming traffic.
There’s an uneven patch on a service road of Shaheed-e-Millat that connects Hill Park roundabout track to Amir Khusro Road, posing risk to motorcyclists as most of them fall off their motorbike here almost on daily basis. This needs to be fixed. #Karachi pic.twitter.com/wlJjUk3G6f
