Is it that she had been vaccinated a few days ago that caused her death. Only on Mar 23 she attended the Pakistan Day celebrations in karachi. She appeared all okay.

They praise when you are dead and gone but ignore when you are alive. Hasina Moin one of the best playwright of Pakistan TV industry was totally ignored for the last 30 yrs. the result was that we produced mediocre dramas and substandard script She was completely ignored and not utilised, it was not her loss it will loss of Pakistan entertainment industry. Now these phony praises do not help.
