One of the most famous personalities in Lyari is Abid Shaka who is known because of his blunt social media videos in which he can be seen speaking bluntly against Pakistani government, Narendra Modi and even Israel but despite his fame no wikipedia profile is available.
Recently he was interviewed on BOL News which was his first major appearance on any television. During the programme he was asked questions about local politics, international wars and domestic problems.
Abid Shaka asked youth and the new generation to keep distance from drugs and alcohol. He said the new generation is responsible for leading the nation which is a harsh struggle.
Many people criticized his appearance on TV channels because he is known because of his vulgar and abusive language. Many said that a drug addict should not be glorified in such a way because it will normalize drug addiction.
Previously when media persons asked him why he uploaded his videos on social media? He answered that I wanted people to know about him and offer me a job. Whether he got the job or not he became one of the most famous persons in Pakistan through social media.
