Description:
Abbasi Shaheed () (or Paposh Nagar) is one of the neighbourhoods of Liaquatabad Town in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. Abbasi Shaheed neighbourhood is located in Nazimabad around the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. This neighbourhood was previously known as Paposhnagar (Pa means foot ; posh means to wear ; nagar means town) due to footwear and leather workshops and boutiques in the 1950-1970s. After the construction of the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, this area slowly got identified with the hospital. The footwear workshops have moved to other industrial and commercial areas of Karachi. The majority of the people in this middle class neighbourhood are Muhajirs, who migrated after the independence of Pakistan. There are several ethnic groups including Muhajirs, Punjabis, Sindhis, Kashmiris, Seraikis, Pakhtuns, Balochis, Memons, Bohras Ismailis, etc. Over 99% of the population is Muslim.
