Chairman Ansar Burney Trust International and former Federal Minister for human rights, Ansar Burney has requested President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani to accept the donation offered by the Indian Government for the flood affected areas on humanitarian grounds.

Burney said that this is the first time that Indian government has shown a very positive attitude towards Pakistan after the Mumbai attacks and the government of Pakistan should respond positively to the gesture for the sake of flood victims and also for the sake of peace in the region.

“By accepting the donation from India Pakistan could send a positive message to the other side of the border as well and will also help bring the two countries together.” Ansar Burney added.

‘400 Indian doctors to arrive in Sindh’

The Daily Times reports that Indian doctors will be arriving in Pakistan to extend a helping hand in flood relief efforts, particularly in Sindh.
The Indian civil society, who wants to see peace between both nuclear rivals, will make all arrangements to send these teams. The Indian doctors will work in flood-affected districts of Sindh province, but will avoid visiting Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa because of Taliban threat.

jai | 11 years ago | Reply Those who are clothed with food in their belly and a shelter over their heads unaffected by the floods talk about ghairat. i would like to see their ghairat when they lose everything. it's easy to talk about ghairat on the internet sitting in your air conditioned room. what gives you the right to gamble with the lives of the unfortunate just so you can feel good about yourselves as a Pakistani?
