Liaquatabad Town (Urdu: لیا قت آباد ) is a town in the central part of Karachi, Pakistan named after Liaquat Ali Khan, the first Prime Minister of Pakistan. It is bordered by the towns of North Nazimabad to the north, Gulberg and Gulshan to the east, Jamshed to the south across the Lyari River, and SITE Town to the west across the Orangi Nala stream. The population of Liaquatabad Town was estimated to be about 650,000 at the 1998 census, of which 99% are Muslim. There are several ethnic groups including Muhajirs, Punjabis, Sindhis, Kashmiris, Seraikis, Pakhtuns, Balochis, Memons, Bohras, Ismailis.

History

The federal government introduced local government reforms in the year 2000, which eliminated the previous third tier of government (administrative divisions) and raised the fourth tier (districts) to become the new third tier. The effect in Karachi was the dissolution of the former Karachi Division and the merger of its five districts to form a new Karachi City-District with eighteen autonomous constituent towns including Liaquatabad Town.
