ISLAMABAD:  Blue World City (BWC), Pakistan’s biggest housing project, management has been alleged for cheating Engin Altan Duzyatan, the lead actor in popular Turkish drama Ertugrul Ghazi.  According to reports, Engin Altan Duzyatan was hired by the Pakistan Blue World City management as its brand ambassador for the promotion of the project, but the actor was kept in dark regarding the legal status of the project. According to sources, the housing society was launched without taking a no-objection certificate (NoC) from the relevant development authority. In a tweet last month, BWC owner Saad Nazir had confirmed this news through his official Facebook account regarding the hiring of popular Turkish actor Duzyatan as brand ambassador for the project. He writes in his tweet as “Alhamdulillah-We are honored to host brother Engin Altan Duzyatan in Pakistan, and will extend a historic welcome with love & respect on behalf of the Pakistani people & BWC members, to the most loved hero of the Muslim world!”BWC Islamabad is being considered the country’s biggest housing project. It is to mention here that despite Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) having barred the management from selling files and making any kind of advertisement, the management is selling files of the project. So far, the management has looted millions of rupees from people in twin cities. Saad Nazir, owner of BWC, is son of a retired bureaucrat, and an inquiry against him for his alleged involvement in another fraud case is pending in Lahore.The second important character of the Project, Nadeem Ijaz was used to sell fritters (Pakoras) in the nearby location of the Blue World City, but now he allegedly holds millions of rupees in his accounts. He not only looted property dealers in the twin cities but in Karachi and Lahore as well. Earlier, news regarding the launch of fake or illegal housing societies was common at internal level but Blue World City has earned a bad name for the country abroad while deceiving a foreigner. More pertinent to mention here is that the Housing management has hired Raja Saqib as in-charge Overseas Pakistan Block who has been caught for fraud as well. Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) Chairman Tariq Mehmood when approached said BWC is an illegal project in Islamabad and they have barred the project management from selling its files and promotion of the project through media. Tariq Mehmood said the management has been issued notice as well and they are going to publish advertisement regarding the legal status of BWC.
