Anti-Muslim Bigots In India Celebrate Karachi Plane Crash, Pakistanis Say As Neighbours You Were Supposed To Share Sorrow

As the world mourns the tragic death of at least 85 people killed, after the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) passenger plane, carrying them crashed into a residential neighbourhood in Karachi on Friday, anti-Muslim bigots in India are celebrating the devastating loss of life on social media.

The Airbus A320 passenger plane belonging to the state-run airline PIA crashed in Karachi’s Model Colony while on approach to Jinnah International Airport. The plane was carrying 91 passengers and 8 crew members from Lahore to Karachi.

While the news brought the rest of the world together in offering condolences to the families of those who died, right-wing Islamophobes in India, are joking and blatantly expressing their happiness at this shattering human loss.

Their comments on social media has left Pakistanis feeling shocked and horrified, while wondering how their neighbours could rejoice in the aftermath of such a horrific tragedy.

While some called it sickening and inhuman, others described it as sadistic.

One Pakistani social media user said, “they were to share our sorrow but this is totally inhumane act.”

This is not the first time, anti-Muslim hate mongers in India have celebrated the death of Muslims. In the aftermath of the 2019 mass shooting of Muslims in a mosque in New Zealand, the right wingers had hailed the dastardly terrorist attack against innocent worshippers as a ‘well deserved lesson’, and had praised the terrorist who carried out the attack as a ‘brave man’.
