    Thank you to all for remembering. I honestly thought the world didn’t care and had forgotten about us. And, Donald Trump, that man really has no shame, scoring political points even on a tragedy such as this. And someone should tell Musharraf that he is part of the reason we’re in this mess in the first place.Recommend

    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.Recommend
