No words to describe the pain of victims and their families. May Allah give Jannatul Firdous to all the victims. Now the question remains, was this an accident or negligence. Imagine big Airlines of the world spend millions and millions on maintenance, WHY ?????

Very sad happening,may Allah protect all Pakistani planes in future,Pakistan being a poor country can not afford to buy or lease new or better planes,eventually passengers pay the price.It is so sad.

It seems from the wreckage photos that fan blades of at-least one of the engines are undamaged. The blades should be clearly bent on the outer edges if the engine was producing any power at the time of impact. I am not too sure about the other engine, however its fan blades seem to be straight too.

May ALLAH have mercy on Pakistan . 139 in Siachen, Dozens in Karachi now 127 in Islamabad. Life got no value left and Death has become the most easy thing to get. Allah knows who stand responsible for these atrocities. This news is heart braking, we already haven't forgotten 146 of airblue. Ya ALLAH Raham kar Pakistan pe. Aameen.
Fayzee Apr 21, 2012 02:29am
the last 737-200 was produced in 1988 i.e 25 years ago. I doubt that such an old place would be allowed to fly anywhere except Pakistan.
Fayzee Apr 21, 2012 02:29am
Old PLANE i meant
Muzammal Apr 21, 2012 02:47am
OMG. It's a unbeearable loss again. May Allah place all the passenger in the Heaven. It's a calamity. We should seek forgiveness.

Its unfortunate. the plane crash, siachen soldier death, bomb blasts day in day out... I feel very sad
Awais Apr 21, 2012 04:33am
Heart Breaking News!! May ALLAH rest all of them in peace. This is really very sad news. Can't express my feelings over this as my eyes are full of tears.. Even the airlines have now started playing with peoples' life by running grounded planes. At least the pilots should boycott to fly grounded planes but I think everyone is working for money and human life has no value.
Imran Apr 21, 2012 06:04am
Unfortunate incident. my prayers for the people perished in the crash.
Safdar Apr 21, 2012 06:33am
Strength brothers and sisters. This is the time of our trial by fire. Pray for all the dead and work for all the living ones.
aftab jalil abro Apr 21, 2012 06:40am
It has been always sad news when human lives perish in uncertain and ambigious state..It sounds me great tragedy for our nation as a whole for we have experienced same plane-crashed incident as we did almost two years ago..Be it siachen tragedy or of plane-crashed,we,ve to see within that what,s wrong in our institutes/deptts which formulates policies and transport mechanisms..
Hafiz Akeel Ahmed Apr 21, 2012 07:50am
simply miserable and heart-rending, we are unable to come out of the miseries of Air Blue Crash but we have witnessed an other air crash. May Allah have pity on Pakistan. Pakistan is going through hard times at the moment. Death can be seen every where.
Afzal Apr 21, 2012 08:05am
It is very sad news for all of Pakistan and the families of the plane crashed my prayers are with there families.
Ahmed Apr 21, 2012 04:18am
May ALLAH break the curse of the devil (including politicians,media/news channels). This news is extremely heart breaking..
Saad Wasim Apr 21, 2012 09:55am
Indeed the dilemma was not over and again we are in another traumatic scenario. May Allah bless us and pardon those who could not reach their destination. May Allah give patience (Sabr whihc He has told humanity in Surah Asr) to those who would meet their beloved ones in the next life Inshallah.
Hassan Mughal Apr 21, 2012 10:07am

May Al mighty Allah blessed all passed away souls in Bhoja Crash and forgive all us.........UK
Imran Qamar Apr 21, 2012 11:42am
We need to learn the importance of life. The life is one off thing in this world. We need to make sure that we are spending our life according to the expectation from Allah SWT. Please try to focus the ultimate goal of your life. For any Muslim the goal is to achieve the Jannat. May Allah SWT gives all of us Hidayat and show us the right path and give us the strength to follow it. May Allah SWT Bless and give the highest place in Jannat to all the passengers of Bhoja Air jet, flight BHO-213 who passed away last night. Ameen.
ASIM Apr 21, 2012 12:20pm
Ahsan Hassan Apr 21, 2012 12:29pm The story of the 127 innocent souls should not rest filled away in a cabinet. The true story for the Boeing 737-300 rudder hard over should be exploited by investigators and looked upon in depth..
PANKAJ GAHLOT Apr 21, 2012 12:35pm
