The World Unites to Express Solidarity and #PrayforPakistan

There was a global outpouring of solidarity and support for Pakistan through a #PrayforPakistan hashtag on social media in the wake of the terrible suicide attack that left scores dead and injured in Lahore yesterday.

We’re here in Dallas, Texas, USA for Pakistan National Day, and I wanted you all to see how much the recent tragic event…

An image of Minaar-e-Pakistan and the Pakistani flag, similar to the Eiffel tower one shared after the France attacks, started being shared on all social media channels. Messages of support from all corners of the world were on display and showed how we are similar in our humanity.

 

In this trying hour, the messages continue pouring in, some of which hit too close to home.

 

Expressions from all around the world flew in, with messages of solidarity and kinship for what Lahore went through:

Many people and organizations called for blood donations, and any other help that they could find during these trying hours:

Facebook wasn’t far behind in throwing its weight behind Lahoris. After a brief hiccup, it enabled safety check for residents of Lahore, and the chorus of solidarity from amongst Facebook employees also came in:

Facebook’s Director of Product Design also spoke out against the atrocity

In Pakistan’s continuing struggle against extremism, the use of social media networks has proved in sowing divisions between many. Uniting people from all over the world over the menace brought by terrorists seems easier said than done. But yesterday, Pakistanis and the world were unequivocal in their belief denouncing terrorism under one voice.

        Most cancer survivors can donate blood if they have been cancer free for 12 months. People who have had a low-risk skin cancer removed do not need to wait. People with a history of blood cancer, such as leukemia or lymphoma, cannot donate.

        Perhaps he has recovered from cancer..!

      Almost 40 out 72 people could have been saved but died due to lack of hospital resources. Hospitals and Schools in Lahore are worse than Roads and Flyovers. Shame on Punjab Government. Spending $2 Billion on a train , When only 40% of it can fix all hospitals in Lahore
