Southern Punjab started bearing the brunt of flood on Friday when a vast area of Multan region was inundated after the authorities blew up parts of embankments of River Chenab to save two vital bridges and Multan city.

Looking at these pictures didn't look like they are in a different country Pakistan but seemed these are from my village in Haryana. Same house structures, same "Galliyan", same looking cattle. Except the flood of water. Nostalgic and made me sad how people with so much similarity have been made enemies by politics. God Bless.

Wonderful pictures. But I feel sad who are suffering. God help them. Authority please act fast.

These are both heart-breaking and inspiring pictures. They are our fellow Pakistanis. They need even more help.
