And the incidents being narrated are downright heart wrenching


As a result, there has been – to an extent – a general public outcry


People have been urging others to stand up for Rohingya Muslims


Some of our politicians have spoken up as well

As news of the rising death toll has been unraveling, a few Pakistanis decided to take the initiative to try to ease the plight of the oppressed in Myanmar. These brave Pakistanis stepped up to the cumbersome task and have set out together to travel to Burma.


Waqar Zaka initiated the mission


And Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain replied promptly


They have been updating Pakistanis about their plans


Iqrar ul Hassan has also set out to help the oppressed community in whatever capacity he can


They have all been documenting their journeys

Whether it’s on Twitter or Snapchat, people are getting constant updates on their progress.


As a result, Pakistanis are lauding the three for their bravery


And have been passing on their regards to these courageous men


People have kept aside their personal misgivings to appreciate the men


Some are sending blessings and prayers their way


And right now, all people want are for them to be successful in their mission and to return safely


Regardless of the negative buzz around the men and their antics otherwise, their initiative is worth appreciating. Undoubtedly, they have earned major respect.
