  • Ms. Shabbir your articles are informative, but this one needs some correction for the similar future news. You have used a word “crashes” which I think creates great curiosity and mental panic among readers. This word is added by you deliberately I can see that, as you used word “Hit” in details you should have used word “Hi”t instead of “crashes” in the main heading too. When its about planes and the very next word readers read as crash, it gives a totally different incident mapping in human mind. I hope you got my point and I expect a positive response and correct understanding from your side on my concern. Its also your duty to portrait news genuinely as it is actually meant to be delivered.

  • Highly appreciated Ma’am, your swift respond proves you as responsible Citizen. Stay blessed.

    • And the worst part is on FB’s caption which says, “another crash for PIA”. Wth? This site is going – oh has gone! – down the drain.
