The Sindh government has decided to ban ride-hailing services Uber and Careem. The reason for that decision to ban Uber and Careem is similar to the argument we’ve heard before from Pakistani officials. Sindh leaders say the two ride-hailing services are operating outside government rules. The ban applies to the city of Karachi and the rest of Sindh Province.
