  2. Very shocking and bad news for all GBIANS especially for students of GB generally and abbot abad particularly. Through this tragic and man made hazard we can guess to at what extent we have been polluted religiously or politically. Why our young generations is exceeding the boundaries of ethics and humanity.All students should be above all types of prejudices. We would expect with senior students forums to discourage and avoid such in human actions in their campuses and take pro active measures to overcome such man made hazards.
    though this is in human action to kill one another as a GB students but it may be cause of some misunderstanding from gross root level which leads to instituitions as well. All demises and injured students are our GB students that is why we extend our heartiest condolance to both families (Minister sab and moulana sab) with request to overcome such internal disintegrations and prayers for injured to their immediate recovery. GB has already suffered a lot and please discourage and stop such inhuman actions taht causes further disintegration in the region.
