Jump to: navigation, search

The Rainbow Centre is a shopping center in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. Rainbow Centre is located adjacent to the Empress Market, that is famous as the hub of video entertainment in Pakistan and the country's video piracy industry. Located in the area of Saddar, it is reported to be the largest CD and DVD market in Asia.[1][2]

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.[3] Recent (2007–2009) bomb threats to the building have been attributed variously to a larger influence of the religious extremists;[4] or to the commercial interests of the media piracy operations in the building.[5]
