Whenever we are in a debate with a non-Karachite, they try to shut us up by saying ‘Karachi is dangerous’. And while it is true to a certain extent, the city has so much more to offer, say, ‘kind-hearted robbers’. We know you are confused, but hold your horses, here are some really interesting stories about how it’s like getting mugged in the city of lights.

It all started when a Twitterati shared his ‘favorite Karachi story’.

“My favorite karachi story is still this guy who works for me had his motorbike stolen at gunpoint in korangi. the guys who stole it gave him a ride back home on his motorbike, before riding away with it. brilliant. we’re just good people in this city.”
