    @ GhurbatKhan/waqas – Correct. Probably the same way God gave you the brain, which obviously you can’t use it. At least have the courtesy to respect the dead.Recommend

    @GhurbatKhan/Waqas You guys should be ashamed of yourselves. Respect the dead. And she was a trained fighter pilot….are you one? No? Then keep your opinions to yourselves.Recommend

    All respect for this young martyr of Pakistan. She sacrificed her valuable life to save the innocent people . Had she ejected earlier, she could have survived, but plane would have crashed on the public area. Allah taala Maryam ko aala derjaat ata fermaye. Aameen. Recommend

    Ghurban and Waqas,

    I will tell you what is really embarrassing. What really embarrassing is to put down national heroes who are determined to protect our nation and lay their lives in the course of performing their duties. Not everyone qualifies to become a pilot in Pakistan Air Force. They have to be exceptionally smart and go through vigorous training which what exactly Maryam did.

    My questions to both of you degenerates is what have you accomplished in life that is more noble than serving your nation? Aiery ghairey nathooo khairey like you are only good for criticizing others’ accomplishments and degrading their sacrifices. Recommend
