8th October 2005 Earthquake in Pakistan: Twitter Mourns

Ten years down the memory lane, 8th October perhaps records the most tragic of all natural disasters ever occurred in Pakistan. Back in 2005 to this date, the nation lost more than 73,000 people as a massive earthquake of 7.6 magnitude rocked our beloved homeland. In memory of the martyrs, Pakistan today observes The National Disaster Awareness Day.

The catastrophe created its havoc in Islamabad, Azad Jammu and Kashmir along with parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, reducing  many cities to rubble. Around 128,000 souls were injured, 200 humans are still missing and 3.5 million people became homeless while an infinite number of families were torn apart and countless children became orphans

Such a mark of devastation, 8th October 2005, left on the whole nation that even a time as long as a decade could not heal the pain of the affected people.

While the whole state has soaks in melancholy, Twitter too mourns while reminiscing the calamity that hit the nation ten years back. Read the voice of  bereaved Pakistanis, as they recall the moments of the epochal earthquake of 8th October 2005.
