Muhammad | 3 years ago | Reply May Allah grant them a peaceful soul and journey further. The pointing fact is the discrimination line of the Prime Minister where the People who are died due to the natural disaster are given the pledge of sorrow but the people of Quetta, Predominantly Hazara who are said to be Minorities are not given even an overlook to their skirmish conditions of their life where they are being killed brutally on weekly to daily basis. This kind of discrimination draws a line between the state and patriotic citizens which leads the citizens to change their aim of life from patriotism towards the traitors which is said to be creating a great dilemma for lovely state of Pakistan.
