The waters continue to rise. And so does the death toll. The number for today is at least 417, and in all certainty more. That that is just for Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa. All provinces and all parts of Pakistan are hit.

ATP will be sending all of its revenue to relief agencies working with the poor hit by these flood. We urge our readers to do the same.

More details on this calamity here; and a pictorial post of the misery it has brought, here.

    ATP’s front page is so depressing today, even by pakistan standards. Every story is a story of death and destruction. kiya ho gaya humaray chaman ko!

    Thank you, Prof. Najam, for pushing on this story and for setting an example of what we all can do in whatever way we can. This is something on which each one of us can help in some small way. I am inspired by your gesture.

    Thank you ATP, for once again showing the way. You guys always rise to the occasion when all everyone else does is to talk.

    Is there a way we can contribute to your collection too. What is the best way and place to send relief money to?
