If you've been to Clifton beach in Karachi, you know it's not the cleanest place around.

People litter, waste washes up on the shore and there's even a discharge of untreated sewage into the sea from a drain near a restaurant.

Shaniera Akram has taken to social media to declare the beach in a state of emergency.

"There is kilometers of medical waste, including open syringes, vials of blood, broken glass medical containers, that has come in from the ocean spread out over kilometers across the beach. Our beach is a bio-hazard zone and needs to be shut down immediately. I am so sorry to the people including myself who use and love our beach but this is beyond safe."

She called for the media to take notice:

Akram also warned people to let professionals take care of the mess as cleaning it up ourselves could be dangerous:

She suggested the beach be shut down until it's safe for the public:

She had also previously shared a picture of all the plastic waste on the beach:

Good on her for pointing this out and also shutting down this troll in the process:
