Al-Azeem Virani – Karachi—The Independence Day was celebrated here at KPT Head Office in great fervor. The proceedings started with beguile blowing for two minutes followed by flag hoisting by the chief guest on the occasion, the Chairperson KPT Nasreen Haque; and took the guard of honor from neatly dressed battalions of Port Fire Service, Port Security Force, Port Civil Defence, Traffic Department, Marine Apprentice A and Karachi Sea Scouts.
Sea Scouting is organized to promote better citizenship and to improve members’ boating skills and knowledge through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, social, and service experiences, and knowledge of maritime heritage.
There are about 9 Ismaili Sea Scouts, including 4 officers, 1 Sea Shaheen, 1 Sea Scout, 2 Sea Cadets (rovers) and 1 Sea Ranger. They are on a very initial stage and believe may many sea minded youth join this group to know seamanship.
