Respect the deceased: Celebs, Pakistanis urge people to stop sharing videos of Murree incident

In a heartbreaking incident, at least 19 tourists stranded in their vehicles succumbed to the extreme weather during a snowstorm in Murree on Friday night, said Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid on Saturday

According to the minister who arrived in Murree to monitor the rescue operation, hundreds of vehicles were stranded in Murree whereas over 23,000 vehicles have been rescued

The tragic incident was brought to attention after several posts and videos about the same started circulating on social media

Many took to Twitter and expressed sorrow over the loss of innocent lives, while others criticised authorities for not rescuing the tourists in time

However, many tweeps condemned people who are sharing heartwrenching videos from the tourist site

Some heartless idiot has filmed & shared the video of frozen bodies in Murree
