OccupationPolitician
Naimthullah Khan, (born 1 October 1930 Ajmer, Rajasthan, British India) was the City Nazim (City Mayor) of the largest city of Pakistan, Karachi from August 2001 – June 2005.
Early life and career
He graduated from Punjab University with a Masters in Journalism and a Law Degree from Karachi University. He is a lawyer by profession. He is the chairman of the biggest NGO of Pakistan, Alkhidmat Foundation. As Mayor of Karachi, in 2005, he was selected to be a contesting candidate in the Top-20 Mayors of the World list.
Nazim of Karachi
He was the first Nazim of Karachi after the devolution plan under President Pervez Musharraf regime in Pakistan. He belongs to Jamaat-e-Islami being inspired by the thoughts of Abul A'la Maududi and Naeem Siddiqui. Naimatullah Khan was elected City Nazim (Mayor) in 2001. Nematullah Khan succeeded in getting an amount of Rs.2900 Million for reconstruction of Karachi, city council approved various projects such as 18 flyovers over major roads, six underpasses, two signal-free roads and a huge water supply scheme for the people of Karachi. It was for the first time in the history of Karachi that all the stake holders in Karachi were incorporated for the developmental work in Karachi. The Karachi development plan comprised signal-free main roads, many fly overs, underpasses and the replacement of many water and sewerage lines. One of his projects, as the city mayor, was the Green Line Bus Project for Karachi where he imported buses from Sweden.
Another publicly well-admired idea that he introduced was to involve local boys from the villages situated near the Arabian Sea surrounding the 64 km coastal belt of Karachi. These local village boys, familiar with the sea, were good swimmers and were hired on a contract basis as lifeguards to help protect common beach visitors and picnickers when they attempted to swim in the sea for fun. In September 2017, Karachi beaches had to be sealed by authorities in the wake of 55 people drowning in the three months period.
Naimthullah Khan resigned from his office in June 2005, and was not re-elected in Pakistan's next 2005 local city elections.
