Time to help the Pakistanis
Its time for the UAE government to send greater aid to the Pakistani people. Pakistan has supported us since the day of the creation of the UAE and even before. The Abu Dhabi Maqta Bridge was first built as a land causeway by a Pakistani Civil Engineer, back when we didnt have the money to pay for such projects. Pakistan has helped us time and time again, usually in the name of Islamic brotherhood, not profit. It would be shameful to not return 110% in gratitude.
Certain newspapers whose staff has an agenda against the Pakistanis should set aside their differences, and concentrate on showing the plight of the Pakistani people from a personal and International angle. The media must take a more active role in the assistance of the Quake Struck Victims.
I also find it dissapointing that only a minority of the bloggers cared to post about this heartwrenching tragedy. If you have anything against the Pakistani people, put it aside and blog in support of the Quake relief.
To everyone reading this, I ask you to please send support and whatever aid you can to the Pakistani people, whatever channel you use, even if its your spare change, it can add up to make a great deal of difference.
