These pictures from the Associated Press need no commentary. They demand our attention. Our empathy. And, wherever we can, our action.

I hope these people get help soon, otherwise it’s the same things as what happened to the Bengalis of East Pakistan when the floods hit them. May Allah(SWT) help us all. Ameen.
These pictures bring tears to my eyes. These people really did not have to suffer like this. We all have a responsibility to help them. Thank you for keeping or conscience alive and reminding all of us of the plight of those less fortunate than us.
Actually the insurgency in Balochistan is limited to Marri and Bugti tribe areas. These areas hit in earthquake are mostly Pakhtun populated, and did not join the Akbar Bugti-led rebellion.
So if the insurgency is your hangup, then dont worry about it as these areas remained loyal to Pakistan, and now they need your help. Go to the next pages and I have listed some private charities which are helping. Donate!
the tragedy is that this tragedy did not need to happen. It’s really poverty that made a quake of this size cause 300 deaths and 70000 people homeless. Mud houses fall even in small quakes. That is the rebuilding that is needed.
