Rizvia Society is a neighborhood in the Karachi Central district of Karachi, Pakistan. It was previously a part of Liaquatabad Town,[1] which was disbanded in 2011. This neighbourhood is predominantly populated by Shia Muslims.

After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, Rizvia Colony was made by a school teacher of Sindh Madressah, Maulana Aneesul Hasnain, along with Advocate Qazalbash in 1948. Their concept was to provide plots exclusively to Shias, and not to people of other sects.[2]

The majority of population migrated after independence from areas of Awadh, especially Lucknow, state in UP.

The postal code for this area is 74600. This co-operative society has its own hospital and a school. The society has a board of trustees which look after the trust matters. This trust has its office in Central Mosque, which is also known as Shah-i-Karbala Mosque.
