Kyarr defeated by Abdullah Shah Ghazi?
The havoc of climate change is undeniable now. The increasing number and intensity of storms is just one part of how climate change is affecting so many lives around the world. The cyclone Kyarr in the Arabian sea was just one such example.
Kyarr had scared so many people after there was possibility that it might bring rain and bad weather to Karachi

People were particularly scared because of the already badly managed drainage and flood management system of Pakistan’s biggest city
Message for Karachi parents. There's a storm coming. Do NOT take your children to Seaview to enjoy the show. 😡😡

Thankfully Kyarr has turned its course and it didn’t even slightly bring rain apart from some water levels rising on the coastal area and beaches
According to Met officials the storm has not only been downgraded from a potential supercyclone level to a lower category and it has also changed its course. It will be turning South West now, hitting Socotra Islands.
Karachiites are celebrating that Kyarr was defeated by Abdullah Shah Ghazi
Abdullah Shah Ghazi is a saint with a tomb on the coast of Karachi. He lived in the eighth century and his shrine is located in the Clifton neighborhood. It is said that until the early 1950’s, the shrine was a small hut on top of a sandy hill in Clifton. Ot was expanded and beautified by the then custodian of the shrine, Murshid Nadir Ali Shah of Sehwan Sharif in the mid-1950’s.

It is believed that Karachi has been safe from being affected by major storms or cyclones because of the divine powers of Abdullah Shah Ghazi. No joke.
People think Kyarr couldn’t withstand the divine power of Abdullah Shah Ghazi and was therefore turned away

Whatever the reason may be it is thankful that there wasn’t another flooding of the city of Karachi because we all know how that can be immensely difficult for the ordinary public after even just a little more than usual rain. Having seen the situation of the city back in June this year with the Monsoon season, people have been calling for authorities to finally start paying attention to Pakistan’s financial capital.
Here’s hoping there may come a time when Karachi can actually be a safe and clean place for its inhabitants. Till then we have Abdullah Shah Ghazi at least.
