Karachi (/[email protected]’ra:tSi/ Urdu: Khrchy; Sindhi : krchy, ALA-LC : Karaci; IPA: [[email protected]’ra:tSi]) is the largest city of Pakistan and the 12th-largest in the world. It is also the capital of Sindh province in Pakistan. It is ranked as a \"beta-global\" city [21, 22], and it is Pakistan's largest financial and industrial centre. As of 2019,[update], its estimated GDP was $164 billion. [16][17] Karachi, Pakistan's largest cosmopolitan and most diverse city, is also one of the most secular and liberal cities in Pakistan. [25][26][27] Karachi, which is located on the Arabian Sea coast, serves as a transportation hub. It houses Pakistan's two largest seaports (Port of Karachi and Port Bin Qasim) as well as Pakistan’s busiest airport, Jinnah International Airport. [28]

Although the area around Karachi and in Karachi have been inhabited for millennia [29] it was only in 1729 that the city was officially founded as the fortified Kolachi village. The British East India Company arrived in the middle of the 19th century and significantly increased the importance of the settlement. The British government embarked upon major projects to make the city a major port and connected it to their extensive railway network across the Indian subcontinent. [31] The city was the largest in Sindh at the time of Partition of British Indian in 1947. It had an estimated population of 400,000. [24] The city saw a drastic shift in its population and demography after Pakistan's independence. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims arrived from India to help. [33][34] After Pakistan's independence, the city saw rapid economic growth. This attracted migrants from all over Pakistan and other parts of South Asia. [35] Karachi's population total was 16,051,521, of which 14.9 million lived in urban areas. According to the 2017 National Census, Karachi is one the fastest-growing cities in the world,[36]. It has significant communities that represent almost all ethnic groups in Pakistan. Karachi is home more than 2 million Bangladeshi migrants, 1 million Afghan refugees and as many as 400,000 Rohingyas (from Myanmar). [37][38][39]
