    People die not because it rains, they die because they do not have the means to cope with the rains. They do not have the means because of poverty and maldevelopment.

    It is interesting on how you want to shift the blame from the three jinns to poverty of the people. Of the ones who died.

    Oh yes, the three jinns have the means, it is that the means were not deployed.

    Monsoon rains come every year. At about the same time too. Flooding cannot be prevented, deaths can be. At at these numbers?

    Only one word comes to mind and it is not poverty but Zulum! Underdevelopment is not the cause but theft of the national resources is. Absence of ‘mizan’ due to absence of ‘adl’.

    What is the accounting for communications setups, boats and all other essentials that should have been positioned all over Pakistan to meet the challenges? All I saw was row boats! Goodness.

    Where is the billions of Dollars we have been told by Sultan Musharraf that was spent to organize emergencies in Pakistan?

    If no preparation was made, then the deaths were premeditated murder.

    And please, if you cannot provide answer to these and more questions, at least do not insult the intelligence of the people by removing the responsibility from those who were responsible. And should be held accountable.

    Pakistan has problems but the solutions will not come if we do not frame the question right.
