    “The children were playing outside when an electric poll falls on them killing all three on the spot.”

    Heart-wrenchingly tragic but zero marks for grammar.

    RIP. This Eid has been bad for the children of Gujranwala. First 2 Ahmadi children were burnt to death by Mulla-inspired mobs,now these children. So sad !!

    What happened is extremely tragic, but more shameful is the city administrations attitude that already there is not much to do for the huge population with the only thing left is to visit sea side and on just this one Eid day knowing how busy it will be they could not arrange life guards or any other service. Also shameful is the Pakistan Navy and Coast guard attitude that on one imp day they could not even spare at-least 25 to 50 life guard divers to protect from such tragedy. Extremely shameful.

    While pole’s stability is government’s responsibility, its safe to assume that you just wont get any thing from their side done to better lives of people who always insist on giving their votes to the corrupt and incompetent. I am but amazed at the carelessness of people running/ swimming as fast as they can to find death. I’m really speechless how people are dying in a warzone compared to ignorant/ careless ones trying hard to produce competition. Some humans just dont deserve a brain.

    To be Very Honest its not fault of any Provincial Government, this evening I was there and I had seen life guards were literately doing their job and they even had a fight with few people who were not moving from places where water had started increasing, yet people were going there. From this incident I see it as one of the example, where we don’t want to play our part and yet blame government for nothing. May Allah give courage to the families of departed souls.

    @Jibran:
    Start paying the electricty dues. Yes that is the fault of Sindh and KPK. Patronage of Kunda systems must stop.

    @Ansari:
    What’s even more shameful is that people like you don’t waste a chance to bash Armed Forces. For your kind information, Navy helicopters are already engaged in Search & Rescue operation. Civil administration’s job is to be done by civil administration. Then you guys want to drag Armed Forces in every issue complicated by concerned authorities’ incompetence & corruption; and then complain when Army makes its presence felt in corridors of power. Be logical.
