Ali | 5 years ago | Reply Please pray for Pakistan and those who have been deceased. I must admit no press or media coverage for this attack on the Muslims in Pakistan. No silence or remembrance message from the world countries to pay there respect. When other countries are attacked full media coverage and blame the Muslims.
