Disputed Islands of Karachi declared ‘protected forests’ by Sindh

Sindh government has declared two islands off the coast of Karachi “protected forests” while instructing its wildlife department to notify the decision. The proclamation was made against the backdrop of an ownership dispute on Bundal and Buddo islands between the federal and provincial authorities. Sindh Governor Imran Ismail announced in October 2020 the federal government was interested in developing new cities over the islands.
