Topic: Social Media Roundup – Crash of the Bhoja Airline
Description: On the 20th of April, Bhoja Airline Boeing plane 737 crashed in Rawalpindi causing the death of 127 persons including nine crew members and 117 passengers. The media had invoked a lot of anger among the people all over Pakistan by thrusting the mikes in the faces of sobbing relatives, who had lost their loved ones, asking them weird questions.
It is being said that the airplane was 32 years old and was still flown. The weather in Islamabad is also being accused for causing the crash.
Is it really the Civil Aviation Authorities’ fault to let an old plane fly? Will this news also be buried like the one of the Air Blue crash that took place two years ago?
