Adnan | 11 years ago | Reply There should be no need for this. Govt. must announce to cancel 14th Aug celebration. People must not celebrate it this year as a gesture of support to flood victims. There should be no room for celebrations in catastrophe. Instead, every Pakistani must donate for flood victims. We don't want to see decorative lights in Lahore, we must make sure there is food and water for the affected.
