  • Building and construction laws are not followed and many buildings here are not approved by building control authorities and are illegally and haphazardly constructed without taking into consideration safety of residents. All those buildings should be inspected as they are showing footage of strong tremors so those structures must have become unsafe and could easily turn into tragedy ..



  • just heard of sum old buildings collapsed in lhr!!!



  • Allah rahem karay humaray haal par..or humain mazeed azmaish main na daal..ameen..!!



  • Assalam-o-Alaikum-Warahmat-ULLAH ALL,

    After this quake, weather has become cold in Lahore. There's 'andhi' plus clouds are around, MASHALLAH :D



  • Pakistani quam ko ugently apney ghunahon se tuba kerni chahey.....

    Zardari, selab and Zalzala are sign of Azab

  • expakistani

    Yes, you are rights, Zardari is a also a curse of Allah upon the nation. Let us all recite Istigfar and reform our national character as well.



  • This curse from Allah only took place in Zardari and Musharraf governments. Lets pray and do Istighfar to safe us from any Disaster because of their Evil doings..



  • Is their any NEWS about Losses from this Earthquake????I saw in News that this Earthquake generated in Northern Afghanistan Near Pakistan Border at Hindukush Mountain Range so what about the Effects of this Earthquake in KPK????they are the most Closest area near Epicenter????

    Another thing which I heard was that in Muhmand Agency I guess two Pashtun Tribes(bangesh and Mangal) were FIGHTING a BATTLE for WATER and I heard 26 people were killed in that battle due to use of Heavy Weaponry against each other before the Earthquake happened....

  • Is there any destruction reported? I waited for it in news but it seems that even 6.3 was calm



  • In some areas (north) land has shifted and deep cracks were shown by media. Not large scale destruction except a few houses down slope caught in a land slide.



  • Thank God nothing disturbing had to hear and bear!
