The insensitive use of load speakers, gun firing and fireworks has become a nuisance in Karachi, especially in all residential areas. The builder had given a handsome amount to all concerned authorities to use that particular residential space as a commercial space and the entire main residential street covers with banquet and marriage halls in almost every town. The most annoying things are the display of fireworks and the use of loudspeakers to entertain the guests till late nights. People seem to believe that every occasion like marriages and birthday parties would be incomplete without the blaring of loudspeaker and fireworks.
The worst hit by this improper use of loudspeakers and fireworks in residential areas are the elderly and the children. Due to excessive noise the elderly cannot sleep properly and the children cannot concentrate on their studies. It is time the authorities did something to regulate these issues and put all officials behind bars who gave permission to run a marriage hall in residential area and gave permission to victimize the people of Karachi.
