People of Bannu open their hearts and homes to IDPs

Bannu's hospitality comes into play as IDPs flow in


Web Desk July 18, 2014

BANNU: North Waziristan's internally displaced persons (IDPs) are being treated as anything but strangers in Bannu, where tens of thousands of them have shifted to escape the ongoing military operation in their hometowns.

Residents of Bannu have welcomed them into their homes, without question, to help them in their time of need. In the town of Goriwala in Bannu, one Ali Khan erected a wall in his house to make room for incoming IDP families.

One such family is Hukumullah Khan’s, who have settled into Ali's home. Sporting a long beard, a prayer cap and a humble expression, Ali said, “These are our Muslim brothers and are in need of great help.”

“I have given them the place to stay so that Allah gives me the reward for this noble act and it’s also in our culture to be hospitable,” Opening the doors of his home to dozens of IDPs, Ali added.

Hukumullah said that his family is well looked after and are served cooked meals everyday.

The total number of IDPs in Bannu is now equivalent to the entire population of in Bannu itself. Ninety per cent of these IDPs are staying in the homes of Bannu's residents.

Well done to the Pakistanis of Bannu

To think, the savages in the Waziristans used to bomb the citizens of Bannu and DIK....

I hope the IDP's when they return, never allow the indian backed savages to return
