Continuing Pakistani floods

The United Nations has now estimated that Pakistan will need billions of dollars to recover from its worst floods in 80 years - further straining a country already dependent on foreign aid to prop up its economy and back its war against Islamist militants. Over 60,000 troops are involved in flood relief operations trying to assist nearly 14 million people who are now affected by the flooding. The U.N. has just launched an appeal for $459 million in immediate aid, as Pakistanis have become more frustrated with their government's response and President Asif Ali Zardari's trip to Europe. [This entry is part II of a double-issue today, part I about Russia here] Collected here are recent photographs of Pakistanis as they continue to cope with their flooded country. [See previous entry]. (36 photos total)

My favorite thing about this blog is that it always reminds me that there's a bigger world out there besides what I see every day. It's sobering to imagine myself in their situation.

"And so castles made of sand fall into the sea eventually..."

Awkward moment,.. I was just listening to some Hendrix songs while looking at these pictures. Isn't the whole Idea of us, humans, in control of any situation who concerns our enviroment a big castle of sand?! Unfortunatly thoe pictures show us a sad way to realize it!

Before more people like #14 show up and comment, the reason we must help is that if we don't, then groups like the Taliban will!

Who do you want Pakistan to remember as the people who helped feed survivors and rebuild their country? Them? Us?

Amazing images. It is pathetic for people to come in here to make their political points while so many people are going through such a traumatic events.

That is the state of discourse right now though. Kick people while they are down.

I truly appreciate the photojournalists that are risking their lives to bring these photos. Thank you for these images, they are hard to see, but definitely worth it.

Jeez, I love the people who comment on these who say its Satan or the Devil and God must have pity. God created this so called Satan according to the religion so ergo GOD is responsible...if you believe in that malarkey.

This is a man-made problem. Global climate change. I hope more relief goes into this area and will be donating money to the humanitarian causes aiding these people. (Not wasting my time in useless prayers to the invisible man in the sky.)

I request all the readers to donate as much as they can and help save the lives of millions of people. The number of people killed by the floods so far is not that great but more than 14 million people have been affected and the UN says that 6 million are in need of immediate aid. People need medicines, food, drinking water, clothes, blankets etc. They have lost everything they had. Please contribute to the aid efforts. You may donate to the UNHCR, UNICEF, or any other aid agency.

#19- When there's a disaster or a tragedy it's always "where's America"? But as soon as America turns it back it gets stabbed in the back and is hated for its military might-which becomes a big help in tragedies such as this.

#22 - Quit the nonesense of blaming God! Remember Satan rebelled against God just as you are doing now. Read first what His word says and then you can criticize Him. Prayers do help (just as physical aid does) for everyone as God is a God of hope and restoration. If you think prayers are useless just quit hoping for aid and start extending your hand now to help if you really mean what you say.

Joe,

Were you in this kind of need, I don't think you'd question the politics or religion of the hand reaching out to save you. Perhaps you'd even remember it after the fact.

How can anyone look at these photos and see anything but their brothers and sisters and children in danger and suffering?

I am proud Americans are there and helping, and perhaps we should send more.

I seem to always learn so much about life in foreign lands through the Big Picture. Not so much about the crises at hand, but rather about the little things that define people's lives. But of course the crises are stunning and awe-inspiring.

One of the most shocking photos here is #22 which displays an opulence really out sized for the way almost everyone else appears to live in the country. To be expected, but still a shock.

My family is trying to help in relief efforts too as I plan on flying back to Pakistan next week. It's amazing how we sometimes are so negative about our own country, bombarding our own traits with negative comments everywhere. But when something like this comes along, the people unite. It is sad how we need a disaster to come together, like in the 2005 Earthquake but it still shows that we haven't died as a nation yet.

May Allah have some mercy on the people. No one deserves to go through what Pakistan is going through right now. I pray for all of humanity. Ameen.

Why beg the 'Kaffir' USA and West? where are the Ummah brothers? Does saudi arabia thinks that making world's biggest clock is more important than the 14 million fellow muslim brothers affected? Or is it the islamic centre who is willing to spend $100 million on constructing a mosque at ground zero but now give one only $23000(Value of Saudi Tents given to Bakistan) for fellow Ummah brothers in need?

The floods should also be the conspiracy of HINDU INDIA and Jewish Israel? What about the money given in Aid used to buy F16 and Apaches? Mortgage them , sell them for the food for your countrymen but how does the floods affect the Punjabi Army? They still can have tea in their manicured lawns.

Get Some more F22 and F18 for flood rescue from USA. Also ask for some attack helicopters. Shameless army .

Beautiful photographs, if "beautiful" is the word to use for such a horrible catastrophe. Brings the floods half-way around the world into perspective.

Any one of them could win an award, both for the quality of the photography and for the content. But it was number 4 that really touched me--so reminiscent of the aftermath of hurricane Katrina almost five years ago.

It is indeed a testing time for the millions people affected by the floods. On one hand, all the help that has been given by the United States is most appreciable as US has always been a friend in need to Pakistan ( Uneducated Mullas might think otherwise). The most notable thing is that the Middle East countries with so much oil wealth specially Saudi Arabia are nowhere in sight in helping their Muslim brother and sisters. Being a Muslim, I so despise the Arabs and want to bomb them to stone age.

See beyond the pictures, will you! This spread isn't about America (one man) vs Pakistan (another man). It isn't about militant mullahs either. It's about the terribly large swath of grey in this world. If you have a stake in improving our lot, then help out, learn more, read more, listen more, and talk less.

I am very happy to see a lot of pictures from the U.S. Army. It makes me proud. It's sad that Pakistanis hate us so much. We seem to be the only foreign country helping them in this disaster, and I believe we are the only foreign country helping to rid Pakistan of Taliban fighters.

These people really do need help, so why don't armys from every country all over the world that not being involved stop wasting time and money by entertaining themselves in wargames and do something useful? They have the equipment, the time and the human ressources. Focus the Army's powers on doing something good, not on destruction and "eliminating evil forces".

Of course this is only my personal opinion and I might be wrong.

speechless... I just want to say that we people of Pakistan don't hate Americans. I don't know why we are discussing politics here.

These pics are not just from one place...The flood is no entering Sindh province and had already started its devastation in those areas.

To all the people ... These areas are not so well developed. these people are farmers and villagers. If you can help then HELP them.

@ JJ: there is no cultural or religious thing behind the red beard. There is a thing called (Mehandi) a sort of color, which brings out such color!!! hope you are satisfied.

@jj that red beard is due to hena. is does not have much religious significance except that its believed that the arabs used to do that too. but it is said that applying hena to the hair cools down the head. it has a soothing effect and it dyes the hair too at the same time. ppl use it to dye their fingernails too. it was mostly used as a nail coloring agent when there were no nail polishes. hena absorbs in skin, nails and hair. its also used in weddings to make "tatoos" in india and pakistan. search for "mehndi" u will find allot of information and pictures on google.

well, what is the big deal about this? there are tons of such natural disasters in india like this and we always manage to handle them well.

Pakistan, already a failed State is now undergoing this. It should be a lesson for them not to mess with its neighbors on all sides. How come their allah didnt come to help the great islamic republic? He probably knows what they are doing to India, to kashmir, to afghanistan and all other neighbors is completely wrong.

while we hope they can come out of this disaster, we also hope they learn a lesson or two from this.

This is god's way, that too during ramzaan, of telling them to mind their own business and not to mess with others around them. Hopefully this flood would have also brain-washed those mindless fanatic mullas who rule that country.

Tragic pictures. Always heart wrenching to watch people suffer after a disaster. I hope the Pakistani government is doing more to help the displaced. Well as usual USA is there to lend a hand and food. I hope that some of Pakistani hard liners see that the USA is there to help, not to be their enemy.

Thank you all for your comments, like Sarah said the UN statistics (13.8 million) been affected by floods. areas of all five provinces in Pakistan has been affected by destruction. in many areas like Muzaffargarh coming 72 hours could be dangerous cuz of flood surge arriving from north.

Please, follow this link to help these people, trust me... even your little amount or any kind of help/effort will work for victims. Follow this link for national/international help details.

LOL to Margarie!

#96, Your ignorant comment doesn't assist in any manner. It only rises a negative appetite the table.

What I don't understand is why the spoiled, power-hungry money-wasting gulf countries aren't doing anything! Is UAE too occupied in finishing off their useless million dollar tower to simply beat our Toronto (which by the way is doing a great job with our fundraising events!)? And to add to #61's comment, clearly these countries live in selfish apprehensions.

Haiti recieved aid from all over the World, forget America. But that was 3 million then. Here, we're talking about 14 million & counting.... .. .

To answer no.55's comment. It is only at times of natural/national disasters that we Pakistani's actually appreciate the amount the govt spends on our military. Were it not for the immense efforts of the Pakistani army,NGO's and groups of civilans across the country, we would not have made it through most natural disasters, including the devastating earthquake a few years go.
They are once again breaking their backs to bring us through this one. God bless them all, God bless all those who are helping, irrespective of where they are from.

Dear All,

I pray to the Heavenly Father to give peace to the souls of the dead and strength to all the people who are helping the people who have lost their dear ones in this catastrophe. Dear Mr Halagu Khan.. India does not have any command over the clouds and the natural ACTS OF GOD!!!

Even at these tough times how can people be so harsh in their thoughts and opinions??? Where is Osama Bin Laden? Where are the Lashkar E Toiba?? Will the Gracious Allah ever forgive these people?? I don't think so... I am a Hindu and I am fasting for the Holy Month of Ramzaan for praying for the people who have suffered!!!

May Allah or God or Bhagwan Whoever It may be (We have not seen either of them) help those who have lost and support those who are helping...

God Please forgive the sinners and don't let the poor and helpless people suffer for their sins!!

PLEASE! STOP THIS HATRED AND TERROR NOW
[Amen]

We are only as strong as our weakest link, whenever any global event takes place, we are all talking about regional politics,races and religions forgetting the most crucial fact that we are all connected because we are all human beings. We all have the same body functions, the same heart and the same composition of blood flowing through our veins. When our fellow beings are hanging onto their life by a single thread, how can they or anybody else even think about who they are where they come from.

These people in the pictures are poor people, they probably don't even have the electronic resources to tell them what America is or how the global politics work. All they have ever known throughout their lives is basic survival for themselves and their families each and every day. How can any one of us question their religious or political beliefs. We need to rise above what makes us different and incline ourselves towards what makes us similar-the fact that we are all humans!

These pictures are really great because they let everyone around the world know what is really going on, the important thing is they are not just pictures, they are people like the rest of us!

now that the american president has decided to send the troops and helicopters in, are they intsructed to check the people they are rescuing for suicide vests and other explosives? these helicopters would be a massive target for all varities of the pakistani jihadis. Even if 1 of them succeed it may be too late for these brave american soldiers. Also does anyone enquire if the minorities are getting any of the huge foreign aids? minorities such as 1. ahmadis 2. Shia 3. Baloch 4. Sikhs 5. Hindus 6. Jains 7. Budhists 8. Christians (masih surname is a give away) catholics/protestants? It would be great if we could all email UN and other international and domestic AID agencies asking them about their policies regarding minorities in Pakistan. Finally a list of all the charities permitted by ruling ISI/ARMY to operate and assist in distribution to gain plaudits from the jahils of pakistan.

I know I am being nit picky in the face of a natural disaster, but picture 14 gave me pause. I get the impression something is off about it.

His right patch on the jacket seems like it was placed there after the photo was taken. As if cut out from another photo and placed exactly straight on so the viewer can see what organization he is with. The patch on his left (the one with green) moves with the wrinkles and the top is parallel to the piping on the jacket. But the patch on his right looks pasted on.

I'm NOT suggesting that the man is not from that organization. It could be something as simple that the original patch was dirty or torn or not readable. He is working, so it could have been muddy and the photographer wanted it to be clean and make it clear what organization the man is from. This is fine for a hand out picture from the organization. But if so, the AP should not be using such a photo and neither should big pic.

As to the situation, I really hope the local and national governments can look after these people.

Comments 61, 122 etc the so called Khans (presumed Muslims) are using negative language and venting frustration instead of being positive and re-conciliatory in time of need where all people are equally affected by natural causes and even though there own brethren are badly affected one way or the other be it both good and bad guys of the same community.
Stop blaming other countries, blame your country's (real) filthy rich leadership if at all, however, at this time of need please get out of the hatred cocoon and help in what ever way you can even if it be mere verbal support. Thanks

If you want to help, a great organization that i have seen first hand working on the ground during, for example during the earthquake rellief in pakistan in 2005 is Oxfam UK-- they have a very comprehensive network of local non-profits they work with that ensures relief gets to even the most remote locations.

Please give what you can, $12 will buy an emergency kit for a family of 7:

We gave a lot of help to Indonesia after the tsunami. Indonesia is the only Moslem country where a majority have a favorable opinion of the US.

We should be doing everything we reasonably can to help Pakistan. It's a lot cheaper than invading them, much more effective, and we need Pakistan a lot more than we need Indonesia (for geopolitical reasons).

(BTW, Indonesia was once an OPEC country, but has since been kicked out of OPEC, because they depleted their oil reserves and are now a net importer of oil.)

#96 - This is the first comment I've ever made on a blog because I couldn't believe your mindless, cruel and insanely uneducated comment. Being both "Indian" and "Pakistani", I don't resonate with or understand why you would make such a harsh comment except perhaps because you are very unhappy in your life or you just don't respect other humans. I hope you remember these comments when something very harsh should inflict your life - let's say losing your job, having your wife leave you for your best friend getting cancer, the type that has no cure, losing all your family & worldly possessions in a fire...

This is a humanitarian disaster so let's take the political BS out of this and focus on the innocent babies, children, teens, women and men. Most of these folks are simple villagers trying to get by. This natural disaster is not of their making (though some may argue the effects of Global warming on this one) so let's not get into the blame game.

So rather than write nonsense, focus on how you individually can make a difference - cash, provisions, prayers or even comforting those who may have family affected. As the saying goes, "the more you give, the more you get" - and it's taken all kinds of folks, regardless of race/religion/colour/social class/education to understand this message which is why organisations such as kiva.org & FB groups like "Pay it Forward" exist.

plz i request everyone... that this is not the moment of fighting... this is the time to stand together.... to be the helping hands that are so desperately needed....

if one cannot do anything to help... the atleast dun talk in a manner that will create even more problems...

on this day, 14th August, 2010... .as many Pakistanis celebrate the Independence Day, i just request everyone to take atleast a little time off of their day and try to help our brothers in any way that we can....

After a prayer session on Aug. 14th for all victims of the present horrific floods and fires, the Dalai Lama said, "According to experts these very unusual floods and the devastating fires in Russia are symptoms of a deeper malaise occurring due to unprecedented global warming and other environmental causes." He said said that a concerted international effort was “needed to think about measures to preserve our common and delicate ecology.”

The Nobel Peace Laureate said: "Our effort should be that our heartfelt prayers and sympathy must reach out unconditionally to all the victims of disasters regardless of where they took place."

There is no Allah, there is no god who care for us. The only lesson humans have to learn is to be humble in front of nature and the univers. Like the sun doesn't revolve around the earth, the univers doesn't revolve around humanity. This, is the result of human's arrogance facing life's harmony. It's a pity that religious fanatics will use thoses events to perpetuate ignorance instead of let appear new behaviours and new beliefs to finaly find some balance in this world.

Dear prangachary, Thank you for you concerned and productive comments. I appreciate your concern in this matter. If you have even the slightest of humanity left in you please dont come here.

This is not politics.. This is not a revenge.. This is the BIGGEST NATURAL DISASTER effecting more people than the Tsunami, Haiti Earthquake and 2005 earthquake that hit India and Pakistan COMBINED.

So please, if this is all you could come up with, after seeing these heart breaking pictures, then I feel for you my friend. I hope that you find peace in yourself..

May Allah help those in need, shower them with His blessings and help them recuperate from this. May Allah give peace to those, who lost their loved ones, and accept those who lost their lives into His heaven. Amen

This is once again a difficult time for Pakistanis, May God help them to get out of it asap. At the same time, it's an opportunity for USA and Western countries to win the hearts of Pakistani people by providing all kind of help they can. Pakistanis should also look and realize who is helping them in this difficult time and who is just watching, sitting back relaxing, specially their so called brotherly rich Muslim countires.May God give rise to a really needed revolution in Pakistan and get rid of all selfish, un-qualified, un-sincere leadership whether political, bureaucracy, army, judiciary etc etc. Though this difficulty is from Nature but we should think that we are facing since many decades, what did the leadership plan over the years to face this challenge? How many water reservoirs did they build? Big question mark

@ Rohan Bhatt ::: Brother, I am a muslim orginally from Pakistan. In these pictures, I too don't see a hindu or muslim, Pakistani or Indian; I only see human beings who have lost everything they ever had, and are now only struggling to stay alive.

Brother, Let's pray together, let's pray for our minds and souls and cleanse our thoughts. You are indeed my brother and there is no difference among us. May Allah / Bhagwaan help those people... Ameen

Its plainly obvious you have no heart or compassion. For you to justify and boast that God is supposedly punishing millions of innocent people over some political agenda that is sick only to your mind and some others is completely wrong and shameful.

Allah means God.. and so for you to to 'their Allah' also proves your unparallel ignorance.

Ignorant and heartless people such as yourselves, regardless of whether your indian, pakistani, american, or any other nationality for that matter, do not deserve respite from God or humans.

Whenever any disaster like this happens. always western countries are first to come for aid. Where are all the islamic countries? What are they doing? When jihad comes into picture all you islamic counties get together to fight against the west.

What is taliban doing now when they see American soldiers helping people of SWAT? Pakistan only teaches "hate" but that is not going to help you. You might be successful in killing some people but you cannot win against "Allaha". B'coz Allaha (God) favors only those who know to spread love.

Try to learn to help and god will help you. Your jihad will always lead to hell.

Salaam/Peace/Hi

I find it astounding that people need to vent their political agendas/views in the light of such tragedies. This is not the proper time or place for your vendettas. You can obviously see that the army is non-discriminatory distributing aid, and assistance to anyone affected by the flooding. In any of these photos did you see aid workers asking if the people were Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Ahmadi, Shia, Hindu, pink, orange, green, glow in the dark etc? That's how superficial you think people are. Several of the commentators make me ashamed to be of Indo-Pak heritage. I have family in Pakistan and I also have family in India that were separated after Pakistan seceded from India, many families in both countries suffer from the same predicament. Let me ask you something, do those families refuse to recognize familial ties just because half are now Pakistani and half are Indian? No.

We share the same skin color, we share the same heritage, and if you cut us open we all bleed red. The point I'm attempting to make is we're all sons and daughters of Adam and Eve/Hawa, we're all human so treat each other with respect and dignity no matter where your from or Who/What you worship, in person and online where no one knows who you are. Anonymity is not an excuses for lack of propriety, or manners. When you are anonymous that's when your true colors show, so check yourself and treat others/speak about others the way you would like to be treated/spoken about/to.

For the Muslims reading this please make your fasting Dua's for the victims of this flood and anyone else who is currently suffering in the world and may Allah SWT accept your Dua's and your fasts. For everyone else pray to whomever your deity is and I hope your prayers are accepted.We shouldn't make this about whose religion is right because that is irrelevant, just pray in your own fashion regardless of what others think or say.

Donate generously, Islamic Relief is a good relief organization to donate to if you live in the US or Canada and they are sending aid to Pakistan as we speak. There are various other organizations you can donate to in other countries but be sure to check their credibility before donating because they aren't always honest with what they are using donated money for.

Also to the person who had the audacity to call people "kafirs" who do you think you are, God? A kafir is someone who has understood religion and knowingly rejected it. You can't know if someone has throughly understood religion and rejected it unless you know what is in their spiritual hearts and God is the only one with that right and power so your use of that word is a form Shirk and highly inappropriate. May Allah guide us all Ameen.

May Allah SWT alleviate the suffering of the people in Pakistan, and grant them shifa and sabr Ameen.

I would like to thank all the countries, NGO's and individuals who are taking part in the relief efforts. Inshallah we will get out of this natural disaster soon.
Bro and sister Pakistan is a lovely country and the people believe in humanity, it’s just the media who is changing our minds, perception. No doubt the US and European are the helping the most but all the countries other Gulf countries are also helping us.
More than 14 million ppl are affected in this tragic time but inshallah we will cop up with this soon.
Pakistan is a responsible nation and the people of Pakistan is contributing the same way they have done it 2005 earth quake when the youngsters have moved forward and helped the affected areas.
Just want to mention here that the aid was surplus at that time.
Each and every family contributed in the best possible way...
If the people of Pakistan will contribute the same way they did in 2005 earthquake than i guess we will not look for a foreign aid.
In the end, am really thankful to all other nationals who are helping and keeping the moral high.
God bless us all,
Ameen

First of all thanks to all the photographers who covered the tragic event being an active spectator. Their efforts made me/us and world to witness/feel the pain and hard time faced by the rural people of Pakistan.
Secondly, I appreciate the effort made by the Pakistani and US army on rescuing the flood victims. without their contribution it was not possible to decrease the number of deaths. Every single life they saved, they saved humanity.
Certainly it is big and tragic situation faced by Pakistani people. however rest of nation is struggling and striving hard to collect donation and relief fund for the victims.
I will request Govt authorities to please come forward and give a generous and helping hand to all the victims and I pray to GOD to bless them with mercy and relief.

Again, a huge thank to Rescuers from bottom of my heart

It has been the practice and sunna of Allah Almighty to guide the nations through His messengers. Once the nations ignore the guidance and and right path and despite of true signs,reminders and warnings from nature, it does not pay any attention but progress in unfairness and brutality then nature reacts and warns them through Azzab-e-iIlahee unless they as a nation realise and confess their mistakes. where is the concious and ego of this nation and Government when brutal attacks take place on innocents human in the name of religion, Khatam e nabowat & blasphemy (Their own version which is totally against the teachings of true Islam and humanity).

May Allah help and guide this nation to learn and understand the path of rightous before it gets too late.

Please find a couple of minutes to read what I'm going to say here. Whether we as a nation die or live is NOT in our hands. If we come out of this, and we will, for the first time in my life I am getting the feeling we will come out stronger and a nation different to the one the world is used to seeing. This is the first major catastrophe of global warming, something that has been intiiated by and continues to be aggravated by the industrialized nations throwing trillions of cubic feet of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Please have another look at those new born twins in the helicopter...what kind of world have they come into. Do they or their mother know their lives have been impacted by the factories making the very helicopter rescuing them ? Why haven't been there such floods earlier...never. Why now ?
The UN and the US have responded swiftly without waiting for any call for help...and we should thank them graciously. As for those rich fat Arabs, thank you also for not paying attention.

There are a lot of Muslim organizations helping out (just to clarify) and if anyone here is willing to chip in you can text "SWAT" to 50555 from your cell to contribute $10 to help flood victims in Pakistan.

and for the record to all the people who want to turn this into a political debate, go comment on some other Islam-related post. This has nothing to do with religion, only people, our people from another land who are going through hell right now.

Its not just the army who is assisting there, lets not forget all the efforts by the UN,local and international NGO's and prominently the civil service. Since the military has the equipment to fly out in remote areas, we only see pictures that portray only Pakistan military is helping.

In fact a lot more relief work is done by the civilian administration (municipal/civic agencies) and the international NGO's, and this is from my personal experience in relief ops.

Please appreciate and thank all for their help.

Honestly, this site is amazing and it tells stories with fantastic pictures but 90% of the people who comment on this site are idiots. How does a flood in Pakistan lead to comments about U.S politics and the war in Afghanistan?

And for the person that wrote a huge paragraph and noted that we should all take a moment to read it...you wrote: "this is the first major catastrophe of global warming". ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What about every other natural disaster that has happened in the last 10 years? How do you differentiate which ones were caused by what?

sad to say but it's too late for change brothers. 14 million people displaced w/ first case cholera broken out. if it spreads, all will die like flies, unfortunately. the poor is being suppressed to the limits and is again the "target of na...ture". it seems that we have lost Allah's support b/c Allah's azaab only comes when societies have gone beyond the wrong path and continue to exist like that. Remember Nooh's case? All was washed. We were warned back in 05 with the earthquake but we didn't change our ways. this time nature has struck full-blown and there is no way we can fight nature. the sad truth is that there is no hope left..take a look at this.. does this give anyone hope???? i don't think so. Quran is the voice of the poor and it tells me that we are in for destruction. people talk about janat and dosakh. this is dosakh we are witnessing, it is no less!!! we have created our own dosakh (hell) and we are bound to face it whether we like it or not

"god doesn't exist"? what a load of rubbish. regardless of what people like whoever mentioned that say, there's nothing to disprove, it's like saying your ability to appreciate art doesn't exist, or your ability to feel emotion for these poor desperate people you've never met is a false one. I'm sure God is there for them all in some form, though how ironic it is that it's in the form of the Army....

@Narendra M. Purabia
I hope you saw on 15th August the coverage in international media of Indian brutalities in Kashmir where the biggest democracy of the world is maintaining a military occupation with the help of some 700,000 armed men...the movement is now authentically indigenous...any past involvement by Pakistan notwithstanding. So please examine yourself (if you have the courage to) before you start pointing fingers at others.

For us in Pakistan, it is time for some serious introspection, and some serious action.

These pictures are pretty shocking in themselves. But what they don;t show is also pretty shocking. Where are the pictures of the 14 million people? Where are they located right now? I did not see any tent cities being erected, and no infrastructure to hand out relief supplies seem to be there. It just seems very chaotic and unorganized, just helicopters randomly throwing a few bottles of water here and there. Where is the infrastructure or the organization to handle a calamity of this magnitude? Where are the UN relief workers, the Islamic Relief organization setup, the Red Cross, etc? If I donate money right now, will it reach the people right away? Or will it sit in some relief agency's coffers because they have no way of using the funds to get relief to the people who need it most? It is frustrating sitting here in US and not knowing how the relief is going to reach the refugees. Like all things in Pakistan, the situation just seems hopeless..where are the tents coming in from? what about medicines for teh children, infant formula etc? Does anyone know which relief agency is the best equipped to provide the relief?

Allah help those who help themselves.
As a nation what are our deeds.
What have we learn from the previous experiences.
For how long we will keep begging from others but not from Allah.
What hate and destruction we have spread after all the great kindness and blessings from Allah.
what have we done to stop the injustice and brutality from the most corrupt religious and political leadership who have spread hate, uncertainty, ignorance and intolerance rather than love, peace, brotherhood and tolerance.

It is very sad and painful to see all this suffering of innocent human and hope that this nation will wakeup & learn from this warnings and Allah Almighty help us to understand and correct ourself through His kindness and forgiveness.
I am sure that by the grace of Allah and sincere efforts from this great nation, this hard time will be over soon but if we did not learn a lesson and corrected ourself, then ....??
It is very important to identify and correct the root cause pro-actively rather than reactionary fire-fighting and then asking for forgiveness which we have been doing for time and time over the years and years.
We need to spread and follow the golden principle & message of:

"LOVE FOR ALL HATRED FOR NONE"

We should unite together as a nation to remove the corruption, selfishness and injustice and most importantly beg Allah Almighty to forgive us, be kind on us and help and guide us to follow the path of righteous.
MAY ALLAH GUIDE AND FORGIVE US BEFORE IT GETS TOO LATE.

It is quite sad and disappointing that people even at these times do not leave a single chance to propagate their political, racial and religious agendas. It is a shame to read such comments.

For the racists I would say that we have been fund raising in Karachi for medical supplies since the flood hit and those who have donated have only done that on humanitarian grounds. People from all strata of society have come forward equally.

For the mullas telling you to pray 5 times a day, the people don't need your prayers.. They need your help, so do something. If god has bought this calamity we can tell him we are a people tough enough to face it. And mullas are the slowest ones when it comes to charity. A beard and white cap is not a certificate of morality.

For the zardarians, nawazaz, altafas etc... All these parties are running their own campaigns. Instead of throwing crap on other political parties, join the campaign of your own political party if you trust them and do something. Otherwise zip your lips.

Again another country gets hit with a natural disaster, exacerbated by the continuing ticking of the population time bomb in this region. Ironically as the world has various severe flooding situations, the lack of clean potable water will rise to become an issue that countries and regions will soon fight over.

O God,
O Sufficer of the isolated and weak
and Protector against terrifying affairs!
Offenses have isolated me,
so there is none to be my companion.
I am too weak for Thy wrath
and there is none to strengthen me.
I have approached the terror of meeting Thee
and there is none to still my fear.

Who can make me secure from Thee
when Thou hast filled me with terror?
Who can come to my aid
when Thou hast isolated me?
Who can strengthen me
when Thou hast weakened me?

None can grant sanctuary to a vassal, my God,
but a lord, none can give security to one dominated
but a dominator, none can aid him from whom demands are made but a demander.

In Thy hand, my God, is the thread of all that,
in Thee the place of escape and flight,
so bless Muhammad and his Household,
give sanctuary to me in my flight,
and grant my request!

Let my provision in this world
be reverential fear of Thee,106
my journey be toward Thy mercy,
and my entrance be into Thy good pleasure!
Appoint for me a lodging
in Thy Garden, give me strength to bear
everything that pleases Thee,
make me flee to Thee
and desire what is with Thee,
clothe my heart in estrangement
from the evil among Thy creatures,
and give me intimacy with Thee,
Thy friends, and those who obey Thee!

O God,
bless Muhammad and his Household,
make me their comrade,
make me their helper,
and oblige me with yearning for Thee
and doing for Thee what Thou lovest and approvest!
Thou art powerful over everything
and that is easy for Thee.

Respected Friends.

As you all know and watch on TV every moment, the Situation at Flood effected Areas of khyber-pakhtoonkhwa, Punjab and Baluchistan divisions.
Millions of People effected. They lost their Houses, Animals, Children and Expensive things.
Thousands Of people have died.
Uncountable families are bound to live without shelter.
Hundreds of Women and children are suffering from big pain.
We need the following on urgent basis:
1) Milk for children - Most Essential
2) Clothes - For Women & Children
3) Sleepers - Every Size
4) Tea cattle - Low cost aluminum cattle
5) Drinkable water - We however prefer a bigger water filter.
6) Food ration bags - 1000+ bags required to suffice needs of 1000 families for a week.
7) Tents - many required

There is no god to help anyone. There is no punishment by any god either as there is no god. Also, this flood is a "natural" event of nature. To ascribe this to god is heinous and a great way not to help these people as many think that they are gettting what they deserve for not following the word of god and such. Again, there is no god. Therefore, roll up your slesves and work for it is only in our work as people that we shall be able to relieve suffering and death. Get busy and suspend all religious talk. Get real. Deal with reality!

May Allah help my brothers and sisters back in Pakistan. I have spent most of my life there and been to almost all the places shown above in the pictures. The condition of my people and the extreme agony they are in literally made me cry. May Allah give all of us the courage to stand out united in this test like we did before when the earthquake in '06 shook our grounds.
And to those ignorant bastards who are trying to bring up and blame the politics for all of this. For god's sake get an effing life and pray for our people rather than blaming others for what's happening. It's nature! you cannot blame a bunch of retards for that. Yes I called the politicians retards. This has been called upon us for our own deeds and learn to own up to it, or do not waste your or others time posting on here.
May Allah have mercy on all of us!

It's amazing to see how people use this forum to discredit others instead of raise awareness of the true problem - people are suffering and need help. All political, religious and personal genders aside, put your 'mudboots' on and get out there and help a fellow human. Do you really think that the parents whose child just died from cholera cares what political party or religion or country you belong to? Not at all!

On 11th august Quaid e Azam (founder of Pakistan) gave a speech which no one remembers. It clearly states guidelines which if we all had followed as a nation...we would prospered.

Now, if we want to make this great State of Pakistan happy and prosperous, we should wholly and solely concentrate on the well-being of the people, and especially of the masses and the poor. If you will work in co-operation, forgetting the past, burying the hatchet, you are bound to succeed. If you change your past and work together in a spirit that everyone of you, no matter to what community he belongs, no matter what relations he had with you in the past, no matter what is his colour, caste or creed, is first, second and last a citizen of this State with equal rights, privileges, and obligations, there will be on end to the progress you will make.

Dear Pakistanis May ALLAH BLESS YOU ALL.
the Flood victim really living in a miserable condition, till now the have waiting the aid not cash only food, shelters,medicine,cloths, shoes,
in my opinion dont look towards government, every individual Pakistani can help victims brother,sister, old person in providing the food, and cloths, it is our personal duty because Pakistan is calling to become unite again to save the country Pakistan. if we will not play our roll in this time,
do as you can. other wise ready for blood shed one day these victims become enemies of higher society. fight for their childes survival, help them before they kill the people for food for their child and old peoples those who are suffering and looking toward other brother for help.
unite once again for the solidarity and independence, now it is the war against water, we are brave Muslims of Pakistan.dont look towards your leaders, baddere, industrialist, Bankers, and other big financial institute.
request come alone and help those how and what you can do.

I looked these pictures and felt dear sad emotion. I almost cried but shedding a tear doesnt help. Living in the UK with prominant Pakistani communities around me I 'know' these people. Sad thing is there is a voice, whether your from the East or the West that whispers the moral, political & religious implications of what this human tragedy. Admit it there is almost a voice that want's to say 'hmm you follow religion and look what happened to ya.' If it was the other way round (and it happened in the West' in the conversations I have with Pakistani Taxi drivers there would be some that would say 'It's an act of god and his punishing them [us] for what they have done and doing.' I heard from one recently who said the Oil spill was Gods way of saying to the US 'you want oil? there, there you have it'.
WE NEED TO PUT THESE STUPID BUT 'HUMAN' THOUGHTS ASIDE AND TACKLE THE HEAR AND NOW
290 & 305 offer good food for thought. I @ times think the best way to help is to go out there and do what you can if poss. Offer your skills and time.

Genesis 6 recounts God's promise that he never again would destroy the earth by flood....
...but it must feel a lot like He has, to the families whose livelihood and entire community have been devastated by this.

The difference today is that we now know, and we care, and we will help Pakistan to live through this, and grow from this into the future.

Our house in England was lucky to escape the mild flooding in Sheffield in 2007. It was a strange feeling, seeing rain fall, and watching impotently as more and more of your world just vanished under water, and even our intricate society ground to a halt when travel, power and communication stopped dead.

How much worse must this feel, though?

Pakistan is facing the worst disaster of his life after the partition genocide and massacres. But they will have to take a deep breathe and think seriously, what they have achieved politically, religiously, socially and ceonomically keeping enimity with India and fighting with India for any reason or no reason? Kashmir issue must be resolved; terrorism killings must be stopped and real democracy and rules of laws must be established in Pakistan to survive and prosperous in coming years. Just by begging from China and Saudi and America cannot make the most powerful Muslim Nation rightful leader of Muslim ummas of the Globe.

MY GOD. Picture #36 (the last picture)...look at it.

Look at the man; his hands wrinkled and utterly saturated from being inundated in the flood waters...his body limp from exhaustion...all while during the month of fasting (Ramadan). The despair millions of people are facing in Pakistan right now is articulated in this shot. These people are helpless without the aid and helping hand of other human beings...these people are human beings too; going through a disaster they probably never even imagined they would go through.

Please not only pray for these suffering people; but please do what you can to help in relief efforts. Godspeed to the people of Pakistan...our prayers and help here in America and elsewhere are with you. God Bless.

The people of Pakistan are political idol worshipers who vote and again vote to those corrupt politicians again and again. When the nation was drowning and their inept and most corrupt president was busy making mockery of Pakistani insects (peoples) while traveling to Europe. The thief does not have any feeling for the people, his moto is to loot and loot nothing more than that. These illitrate flock are just animals and idol worshipers though they claim to be muslim, yet they are idol worshipers. Worshipping the same old corrupt politicians.they do not take the risk of tryingn the new blood, more educated and more honest.

Since the floods, there is no terrorist attack in any city. The military operation against the Taliban has also gone on low priority. The Taliban, in their capacity as individuals or under the banner of their proscribed religious group are busy helping the flood strangled people and undertaking relief work. After the flood water recedes and people start going back to their homes, there will be more sympathizers of the Taliban because people hate the government. People at the helm of affairs should do something at this moment otherwise the Taliban groups will emerge much stronger after the floods.

I am shocked that on the web site of a major newspaper in the United States, on the topic of a major natural disaster of international concern, the vast majority of posters appear to be Pakistanis. I am ashamed for my country that, during the darkest hour of the nation of Pakistan, the only thing we can talk about in America, the only thing we can protest, is about a mosque, which will be administered by a man, who by all honest accounts, appears to be good and decent, striving for reconciliation, the Imam Rauf.

And all the while millions of Pakistanis are being swept away by an epic flood. America (the few of you who are even reading this), these are your fellow human beings! In any true religion or philosophy, it is your MORAL DUTY to come to their aid. There is no excuse. No matter how badly you think you are doing, you are able to help.

Shame on those few heartless souls,inside and outside Pakistan, who do politics in this tragedy, ....Pakistanis remain grateful to those who care for humanity..today it is Pakistan tomorrow it could be somebody else. Pakistan has had more than its share of adversity in the recent past but Pakistan has proved time and time again that it is one of the most resilient nations on earth. With the help of sincere friends the world over, we shall come out of this adversity even stronger..Allah willing.. But we need to start helping ourselves first and than ask others.

In this hour of pain and unrest, we all are with the victims of flood to support, help and rehabilitate them. This is indeed a great test from Almighty for those who were not tested through these floods. At this moment, we must only focus on immediate relief to 13.8 million people (a greater number than jointly of Tsunami, Kashmir and Haiti Earthquakes). People of Pakistan should stand up to provide food, shelter, clothing to our brothers in need. Our NGO (Students Welfare Society, Rawalpindi-Pakistan) has already launched releif efforts and sent teams to the affected areas.
Thanks to international community for their feelings and support. May Allah Karim bless the afftected people with rest and reward the helping hands. (Ameen)

You use less fellows will blame India that it has diverted water to Pakistan and causing floods, if ever India had that capacity to divert and flood the 1/5th of Pakistan it would have flooded Paksithan full, the great India contributed my sending money, blankets, resources and saved may terrorists who once dried their cloths will start attacking India. Shame on Paksitan politics and military stop spending money on your military sell it to Taliban and use that money to save those poor.
Pakistan is share on face of world, once a home of great Indus Vally civilization now you useless fellows have made everything useless.

We are all equal we are all one as a race of man. We need to get together all of us no matter what creed race colour or religion. We need to help our brothers at times of need. One man said on the news its better to die then he got no pain no misery. It saddens me to see so many people suffer. While those that are sitting in their house nice and safe and can talk words of wickedness. We need to better ourself as a race of man and start loving and respecting each i hope peace and love can conquer

That’s not to say, that after more than 60 years of Pakistan, successive leaders have not established a flood-management system! Monsoon rains are common there and we’ll get an occasional severe deluge or two, but nothing has been done by the govt as they don’t care and don’t have the will. All the money they generate and receive gets diverted by corruption! All they have for all this time are warning sirens but how pathetic is that?! This time they did not even sound them until too late!! There are so many Muslim civil engineers around the world who can do an excellent job designing it and construction workers and manpower to build and maintain them. But they are all impotent due to the lack of a sincere leadership. This sincere leadership is the KHILAFAH!

In the meantime - Free Airlift of Relief Goods by PIA:

Us people as not only as nation in America but all over the world are colorblind. We do not see that in the end of everyday we all have something WONDEROUS to contribute to a world that belongs to all of us. I see the distraught and hidden secrets our government keeps from us. I see the hate everyday, I live in a city where kids are killing kids. The way we live is not right. We are all covered in skin. We are all people. But we are people of different backgrounds, it should not matter what color, or where your from. It matters that we are all PEOPLE, we are HUMAN BEINGS. No one deserves bad things to happen to them. I just WISH people all over the world would take one good look at what were doing to eachother, and to ourself's. I dont think people take the time to realize that for everything we do at least 25-30 people outside of our "circle" are affected. With over 6 Billion people in the world we are all affecting eachother in one way or another. Now, im not saying that we can create a utopian world, but I am saying we CAN make things better. We need to work together as a ONE, not as seperate nations. We need to put eachother's differences aside. No matter what has happend in the past, the past is the past we CANNOT change it. We CAN however create a better future. So, im asking as just another person; Why cant we start now? Why is there so much hate? What is the difference in one person to another besides there culture, place of residence, color, or appearence? We need to ask ourself's why.

Please help these people. God is a being, he manifest's himself in ways we do not understand. We will never understand, he is working to help all of us even though we do not see the reasoning. Even though we do not understand, we are all his people. He loves each and every one of us equally, there is no favorite. We are his people.

to #408 " the concerned Pakistani in Lahore",
Why would you say that "Although we hate the Americans.."? I am a Pakistani but I don't hate Americans because not all of them are same... you can't based your judgment and opinion about a whole nation just because few people aren't doing what is right. If you are thinking like that then can you really blame the whole world for thinking that all Pakistanis are bad and support terrorism?
Only because a handful of people out of the billion population are playing with and misunderstanding the teaching of Islam, most of the world thinks that ALL the Muslims are terrorist!!!

..I admit that some US policies and actions aren't good towards Pakistan but that doesn't mean that every American hates Pakistan!!! All I'm trying to say is that we as Muslim can't hate others because that is not what Islam teaches us!! so please be careful with your words next time but if you must use those words then at least use only "yourself" to represent them.. and not all the Pakistanis!

Sad that such situations happen. But is there any lesson that Pakistan will take home? The other feature I was viewing was just as gory. Americans killed in Afgan war. Who is to blame. That war is Pakistan designed calamity. People and soldiers are losing their lives. Imagine a situation, where soldiers are willing to sacrifice their life so that other nation civilians become just and learn to live a civil life. Sad, such man-made situations and natural calamity are put in a same light. But then there has to be a learnings from it...

Saeed should understand that if only India is responsible for the floods then he should also mind that next time India will release so much more that the whole of PAK would vanish. But it's not so/ This is the land of Gandhi n we don't retaliate when people are dying. Jaago zardari, jaago Sayyed , jaago Mussarraf.... bachao Pakistan Ko. We will surely help you.

It is not fair to call each country and it's population as cursed every time a disaster hits them? Otherwise check all the disasters that has occurred during 2010 only within all continents (Hurricanes/Floods/Land Slides/Volcanic eruptions/Earthquakes/Forest Fires).The cursed are the ones who have no considerations to nature and turn a deaf ears and blind eyes to any issues related to reducing pollutions to ground and over ground fresh waters and to earth soils and to space that is now full of man made debris which could be behind all these disasters and so called global warming incase it is possible that it could reflect sun rays towards earth causing beside other pollution's all these endless side effects?
We are not supposed to judge people like that otherwise any disaster happening any where on the world any race any religion we should not help or sympathize with because they are cursed by God??? Friends/ Brothers fill your hearts with love and not hate (God is Loving) and crises like that are supposed to have had purified the country and souls of man kind from being unjust to them selves and other helpless ones.

The word of God(Allah) is all about God sending Messengers (Prophets of God) From Noah to Muhammed to teach us the words of God and for what is that? Isn't it about mankind purifying their souls from sins become to have Morals and Ethicals among our selves and with all nations? But today on the contrary we see that mankind has used all technologies to teach and spread all that is opposite to (God Messages to mankind) if God say we spread life we will spread death, if God say spread love we would spread hate, if God say spread Good Morals we would spread ill morals? Some of us speaks of hate to others beliefs with out learning about it and maybe take the Good and leave the doubtful, God has given us Mind and Heart to think and feel the truth of things from what we read and learn from not one culture but from all cultures to learn to think and see God through them.
We ought all to seek God and wisdom of God from all his creatures, we should be seeking the light of God like the night flying insects seeking for the light? That's why we are here for? God said that he had created us nations and tribes to become to know each other and that best of all to God are those fear him most and do as been told to his Messengers to inform and teach their people, here now God is with those who fear him most and are with good intentions whether are Jew or Christian or Muslims or any other God Worshipers, God is not with those with bad intentions, blackhearted, hateful ,unjust and so on of negativities whether are Jews,Christians,Muslims or any others worshiping any thing than God or are Anti-God or Devil worshipers.
So you see God (Allah) is only with the Good and Goodness of Mankind what ever the name of their religion is, since their minds and hearts are as pure as milk, free from guilt and full of love. Kindly allow me to mention here that the first spoken word ever prophet Muhammed learned from the Holy Spirit was (Iqra) which means (Read) in Sura 96 of the Quran, which you maybe should read

Somebody asked where SAUDI ARABIA is in all of this and why they are not helping. I'll tell, they don't give a sh*t about anyone especially Muslims. Same applies to all Arab countries. Most of them are sitting on billions of dollars of cash and oil. And put together they've probably donated less than $100 million.

Wake up Pakistan. Not even the Arabs and other Muslim countries care for you. And you go out in the streets and protest and stand up in the UN for every Muslim cause and all they do is throw pocket change at you. Wake up call.

I will pray the MIGHTY GOD whomsoever he may be (May Allah,May Rama, May 30 crores,May Zisus,May Budhha ) to give power to the people to settle as early as possible.

please read what #497 has said.... allah , christ. or any god we call by any name is within us.... the human beeings .!...... so it is hight time that we practice in whatever faith we belive but learn to respect humanity . faith is something which gives peace and strenghth to ones ownself but the religion of love for humanity makes this planet worth living . Where is Taliban ? where is Osama ? and where are the fake and selfish sympathisers of islam at this hour of berevement ?why dont they help nice and innocent people of Pakistan now .... these fraud men only want islaam to spread .... kill anyone who refuses to believe in islam ? .. where the hell they are now when millions of MOSLEMS are suffering ? . I follow no religion but i am more than sad to see miseries in pakistan and i have already sent my humble contribution to help the needy ..... have courage all good or bad things have to stop one day .... pakistan the humanity is with you

My heart goes out to my brethren facing such pain and sorrow. My prayers for them hoping God carries them through this struggle. Hope they find a reason to smile and overcome all difficulties, praying for their well-being. The government of Pakistan has an inflated ego and wont take Indian help, not even, when our brothers from across the border suffer and when all the hatred cannot serve any purpose. It pains to be silent spectators. Hope you a speedy recovery.

Pakistan suposed to build five big dams but because of hatred among the provinces, for the last forty years they did not build even one, the old dams are half fill with dirt cant take much water. The result is so much water devastated the country and no reservior, the water end up in sea which was enough for seven year for the country agriculture. Please do not give any money to Pakistan so as the result people will wipe old politician and new group will start building dams so this tregedy will never happen.

Ya meray rab teray khazanay may kisi cheez ki kami nahi, tu maaf farmanay wali pak zat hai, agar tughay humari koi bat nagawar guzri hai, to ya ilahi humay maaf farma de, hum per reham kar, hum teri makhlook hain, tughy se madad mangtay hain, or tuhi wo pak zat hai jis nay humay paida kia, ab jab hum per mushkil waqt hai to hum per reham farma, humara sath de. Humaray mulk ko in zalimo se bacha lay, jin ki waja se humara mulk aj tabahi k kinaray a khara hua hai.

Ya rab hum sab ko maaf farma de, or hum par reham farma.
Beshak tuhi pak zat hai, or hum umeed kartay hain balkay humay ye yakeen hai k tu humay zaror maaf farmaye ga or apni naimaton se nawazay ga, jaisa k tu humesha se nawazta aya hai.
