Just another day in Pakistan? We don’t know.
But look at the smiles of Pakistan International Airlines officials as they behead a black goat on the airport runway. They committed the deed right before a plane took off for from Islamabad to Multan.
A fleet of planes has been grounded and assigned for examination after a PIA plane PK-661 crashed near Havelian on a Chitral to Islamabad fligh, killing 47 passengers onboard including singer-turned-preacher Junaid Jamshed and Osama Ahmed Warraich, the deputy commissioner of Chitral.
The order to sacrifice the goat apparently came from the Director of Engineering, after examining a plane, which went on to safely land at its scheduled destination. The move was to appease passengers and pilots, and is apparently a local practice to ‘ward off the evil eye’.
