People are concerned that the government is not taking the necessary steps for providing aid , even after just weeks after a major earthquake 7.8 magnitude in Iran which affected southeast Pakistan and killed 43 people.

 

This quake was 24 km from Jalalabad, Afghanistan which gets quakes secondary to the Eurasian and Indian tectonic plates.

 

In 2005 a 7.6 magnitude quake killed 73,000 people and 3.5 million were homeless in Pakistan (Kashmir)
