I would just like to say Shame On You Mr. Zardari. Just imagine when being a president of a nation you would be asked on the day of judgement that what have you done for the people of your nation what you will say. Just think for a minute and ask yours self have you done any preparation for this.

So sad to hear the news. May God save them. The Pakistan government should surely give complete support to their army men. India can also support Pakistan in recovery measures if Pakistan demands. It is high time that both India and Pakistan should have a final call in Siachen issue. No one can fight with nature.. That is the ultimate truth...

May Allah Almighty protect all MY BELOVED soldiers. Aameen.

India should give help.

May allah protect us and our soldiers.
