These are unfortunate tragedies. Do not engage in playing blame games. Loss of any life is a sad thing. Let the people in-charge sort out the reason for the crash and a complete report should be published.

I respectfully request authorities to shutdown PIA until all aircrafts are thoroughly inspected and cleared for flying by independent authority. All these precious lives lost deserves immediate actions to be taken so that further loss can be prevented. Condolences to families of departed.

ALI: Totally agree with you PIA planes should be fully inspected also if the aeroplanes have been found unfit for purpose then the passengers should be allowed to sue the airline for losses. This is the world we live in once these companies get fined and law suits against them they will only then put safety first before profit. Sorry to say but it is the truth

I am so sad for loss of live so many Pakistanis. This is very dangerous route aa my brother-inlaw died piloting C 130 of PAF in 1968 with 68 people on board. Our brave pilots fly this route without fear as this is the most difficult route to fly in high mountaionous area.

Iqbal Hadi Zaidi Dec 07, 2016 11:48pm

Too tragic and sorrowful even to describe. The worst part is that not a single body is found intact. When someone dies then relatives and friends see the face of their loved one before burial so they are bit pacified but in this case none knows whose leg or hand is found. I will suggest that on passenger manifest he /she must be personified in full along with father name. Here one finds many passengers with just two names like Farah Naz, Muhammad Khawar. Surprisingly there is one named just Aisha. Now as and when anyone reads the news then people would like to figure out as who are those who lost their lives but with incomplete names it is more guess than certainty to personify the ill fated souls. In Arabs three names are must (a) personal name (b) father name (c) family name. Luckily I fall in this category. My heartfelt condolences. Iqbal Hadi Zaidi / Kuwait / zaidi4merdiplomat@hotmail.com

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in my commiserations and the Republic they died serving.

I pray that God almighty may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice, that is irreplaceable.

Another Sad Demise for Pakistan History, As per internal news the plane was grounded a year ago. & all this happened because of government corruption, ishaq dar wants to purchase PIA, by hook or by crook just to purchase 7 star hotel that's owned by PIA. Our country rulers are damn responsible for this great loss. Indeed a loss we cannot overcome. Our corrupt government are disqualified to be a Humein being. My heart just tore up.

No words can be a balm enough. Only the families and friends know the deep pain. Till i saw the pictures and list of names the number of victims was just a number (though a horrifying one). But the pictures gave painful shape, colors to the number and list of names. If a stranger like me feels so much, the families must inconsolable. Hope airlines as well as airports in India and Pakistan work very, very hard on safety.

Fakhar-e-Alam is right in suggesting that the CAA will most likely report that the crash was due to 'Pilot Error', simply because the pilot is dead and cannot testify that it was catastrophic maintenance failure that was the culprit.

We need to focus on what caused the crash and take preventive measures. Seems the ATR does not have a good safety record. How about compensation being paid to relatives of the deceased to help them by PIA and its insurance companies. People should refrain from travelling in the ATR-42 until proper invesitgation and root cause is determined by european and international safety boards. Have reservations in trusting CAA managed by Pakistanis.(http://www.airsafe.com/events/models/atr.htm)
