    Good initiative..

    objectives are achievable but the compensation part is problematic.people have to do a lot more.there should be protest not only protest but an escalation of protest to the level which could compel the owners of airline to start negotiation.Also taking this issue in the supreme court may also required.

    But i am quite sure that they will not pay according to the international standards.

    May Allah(swt) protect every one from these kinds of disaster and give a patience to the relatives.
