I believe donations from the West will perk up when we read that it has been confirmed that Muslim nations such as Saudi Arabia have donated sizeable sums.
You bet. Perhaps it’s the same sort of scenario when a stranger falls ill in public. Nobody wants to go to their aid, but as soon as one does then others follow. So be the first.
If they can afford to be a nuclear country and boast about it, then they should be able to look after their own people.
What’s the betting that the poster of the comment above won’t apply the same logic when the ConDem government start chopping his health service and welfare system, or the services that he relies upon?
I don’t think it’s necessary to donate any money to Pakistan because there’s enough money – and support – available within the Islamic community
Well that’s ok then.
Pakistan has a long history of corruption…….the slow response for help, I believe, is due to its links to terrorism.
You should spend more time looking at the UK Parliament and local councils. Corruption in Pakistan would likely pale to be insignificant in comparison. And as for terrorism the people of Pakistan have suffered terribly as they seek to deal with the ‘war on terror’.
Of course you can always give.
