This makes us feel that those living in Bahria Town need to stop comparing it to some kind of paradise. There are issues that need to be addressed. From robberies, to accidents Bahria Town has its own faults. The administration, management and concerned departments need to devise a mechanism to make the area securer. Allowing every other biker in the housing estate is just aggravating the issue. This needs to be controlled before its too late.
