Fire at Radio Pakistan
The Radio Pakistan, Karachi had been of great interest being the first radio station founded by the Government of Pakistan back in 1948. I remember doing a post on it some while ago.
The superstition of fire breaking in the city on Sundays is becoming somehow true when a fire broke out at the Radio Pakistan, MA Jinnah Road yesterday with no casualities reported but reports of the years old furniture being damaged. However the centuries old records were fortunately not harmed.
“A table and chair set that was reportedly used by the first prime minister of Pakistan and two pianos that are supposed to have been used to compose Pakistan’s national anthem are feared burnt among the property destroyed.”
The fire destroyed assets worth millions.
