Centaurus Mall was the pride of the capital of the country and was very nicely built. It came as a shock to the country when an Inexplicable fire broke out in this very modern building constructed according to the prevailing regulations taking due care of preventing fire and other such hazards. The suddenness of the building emerging on the horizon was surprising indeed but then it has been now considered quite normal in the country the way it was seen burning was unfortunate, to say the least.
It was after all used by people and had become a public asset and should have been treated as such and not a plaything for nefarious games as is usually insinuated. Fortunately, no loss of life was reported but the loss of public trust is enough of a casualty and it will take time to recover as nothing will come out of the inquiry set up to investigate the causes of the inexplicable fire in Centaurus Mall reflecting the ever-deepening malaise in the country. It is certainly a loss for the much-deprived residents of Islamabad who have lost a modern shopping and entertainment facility and may never get it back in the same shape and form. The Weekender
