Faqir Tanha | 11 years ago | Reply Insh'Allah, those who were affected will be taken care of one way or another. May our Muslim brohters, sisters, children, parents, and grandparents who died in this or any other incident enter heaven firdaws. Our people are suffering too much. Change is in our own hands though. Until we wake up and see the reality of destruction upon our own land and our own families and our selves, we will continue to be used, abused, and killed. Wake up people; wake up!
