Changed the thread title. Mods can move it to relevant section as it's not just Pak centric.

The Himalayas are getting more and more unstable, this is not the big one either.
Estimates suggest that there is enough energy stuck below the range to cause a 9.2magnitude quake, it'll take 32 richter 7.5+ magnitude quakes to release that energy.

Its just the Indian continental plate moving north at a great pace causing this.
Another mystery is why India is still moving at a quick pace — one and a half to two inches a year — driving the devastating earthquakes.

“That is one of the biggest problems that we have in plate tectonics,” saidDouwe J.J. van Hinsbergen, a professor of earth sciences at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. “It may not seem much, but it’s the rate at which your fingernails grow.”

As of now four confirmed deaths in Pakistan, but I think the final toll will be far more.
J&K will be the worst hit region this side of the border.

Pakis are pathological liars. And they are stupid as well.

The image of car in "Indian occupied Punjab" is actually a photo from an automobile forum :

But carry on Pakis, it's fun to puncture your propaganda and as bonus expose your stupidity for the world to see. :bplease::hehe:
