Once again we feel sorry about this bad new. and we pray to Ullah (G) for forgiveness.

  6. Its Sad to hear about her, she was young and she was getting all the fame. You can do anything about it and neither you can stop such target killings. I hope those who have done this terrible act are brought to justice.

  7. she was a muslim and a mother and a wife and a beautiful and a good senger and she was form over contry and we are so seed a bout har me allah for give her and me allah give to har killer a panishmint so seed .

  8. I would say I am saddened by this brutal and ignorant display of violence. However, I am not.

    Rather, I am infuriated. She sung about peace and they killed her for it? This event upsets me greatly, and coincidentally I knew about her beforehand.

    What solution is there other than seeking justice?

    Put anyone involved to the sword, peace through strength?
