KMC names street after Perveen Rehman, Sabeen Mahmud

KARACHI: The Karachi Metropolitan Corporation on Friday announced naming two roads of the city after slain human rights activists Sabeen Mahmud and Perveen Rehman.

A street near Korangi Association of Trade and Industry has been named after Sabeen Mahmud, a notification by KMC said.

A street along Bagh-e-Ibn-e-Qasim in Clifton has been named after the Parveen Rehman, the notification read.

Senior journalist Najam Sethi appreciated the decision of KMC on Twitter.   

Sabeen Mahmud, 40, founder and director of the Karachi-based cafe The Second Floor (T2F), was shot dead by gunmen on her way back home after hosting a seminar on Balochistan in April 2015.

Perveen Rahman was a social activist and director of the Orangi Pilot Project Research and Training Institute. In March 2013, she was killed when four gunmen opened fire on her vehicle in Orangi Town.
