Karachi: A group in Pakistan's Karachi were seen performing ''Azan'' as an experiment to extinguish a fire that broke out three days back and has been burning for over 72 hours at a superstore basement in Jail Chowrangi.

Imtiaz Mahmood, on his Twitter handle shared a purported video of the same incident on Friday wherein a group of people were seen performing ''Azan'' in reflective radium jacket.
