The Met office at this moment feels this may be an independent earthquake and may not be simply an aftershock of the 8th October devastating earthquake. As of filing this report no loss of life has been reported but we should all pray for everyone. After the 8th October there have been upwards of 1450 aftershocks.

    I also felt it an hour ago while I was listening to Dr. Ghulam Murtaza. I pray this is not as deadly as the one which jolted us all. But these are signs of warning for us and we should give attention to them. May God make us all think about it.

    This isnt directly related to this earthquake but since I cannot post I thought I would put it in this comment. Take a read and tell me what you think… Its pretty embarressing that we would do something like this as a nation.
