An update though... The repeat telecast for tonight was cancelled due to the continuous coverage of the sad incident of the plane crash of this morning in Islamabad.

We are all sad as some people we knew also passed away in the crash.

Please join us in prayers for the departed souls as well as for their
next of kin. May Allah rest the departed souls in peace and give sab'r (strength to bear this great loss) to their families.

(above notice from some of the closely-involved persons pertaining to the above posted tribute)

Duas/Deep Prayers sincerely requested at this time...
