Memon posted on Twitter, “Public notice by the Government of Sindh, there is no prohibition on pillion riding on bikes in Karachi.

“People are welcome to celebrate the New Year, but we respectfully ask that no fireworks be used, no roads are blocked, and no wheeling. Our top concern is keeping you safe.”

Pillion riding was reportedly prohibited by the district administrations in Karachi and Islamabad the day before.
