Rainbow Centre, Karachi

Rainbow Centre, Karachi

Rainbow Centre is famous for its video entertainment and is perhaps one of the largest hubs of pirated CDs in the world. In 2000, it was estimated that more than half of the 350-400 shops housed in the Rainbow Centre were exclusively engaged in video piracy. Recently (2007-2009), bomb threats to the building have been attributed variously to the Taliban or to the commercial interests of the media piracy operations in the building.
