Pakistani celebrities offered their heartfelt condolences to the victims' families affected by Friday's ill-fated plane crash which claimed the lives of 97 passengers.

Several celebrities took to social media and urged their fans to remember the passengers in your prayers.

Adnan Siddiqui uploaded a video in which he said: “This year my Eid would be different; we were recently fighting with COVID-19 and then we heard such a shocking news of plane crash. Many passengers were coming to their homes to meet their family members to celebrate Eid. May Allah Almighty grant them high rank in Jannat.”


Popular singer-turned-actor Ali Zafar wrote: “This Eid my heart is with those who have lost their loved ones and are struggling to come to terms with the loss. I have no words and quite frankly, words do too little to comfort but I am praying for peace - not only for the families affected but for the nation. May we see better Eids to come. Stay home, stay safe.”


Saba Qamar wrote: Mayday, Mayday, Mayday', Your heart didn't give up till the End. You did all you could, Captain. Fly up in heaven.

For your bravery, hard work, and dedication to our country, we thank you.”

She further adds, "It’s heartbreaking, it makes me wonder if this year has more suffering to offer.And it sucks because we probably don’t feel half of what the families and loved ones feel - its devastation upon devastation. Please be safe you guys, cherish everyone around you, pray for everyone, be grateful - it’s all so unpredictable."
