Just a day before Eid, on chand Raat, tragedy struck our nation yet again. The unfortunate incident took place in Bahawalpur which killed more than 150 people when an oil tanker caught fire. The people had gathered to collect oil from the leaking tanker and according to witnesses, people smoking cigarettes in the vicinity is what ignited the inferno.
This heartbreaking incident left the whole nation in mourning and dampened the celebrations of Eid. Our stars of the Entertainment Industry expressed their sorrow and reacted to the incident in the following manner:
Its Very Painful Accident at #Bahawalpur 140 Innocent Peoples – RIP.

Unfortunate 💔 #Bahawalpur
Can't celebrate EID after what happened in Parachinar, Quetta and now in Bahawalpur. (All my eid shows are previously recorded).

Pakistan bleeds before Eid. Praying for each life lost. Praying for our Nation. Praying for all those who have lost loved ones.
