The wait for answers

We do not yet know who or what was responsible for the tragic fate of flight BS211, and only a thorough investigation can answer the many questions we still have.

Let us not speculate.

It will take patience, but certainly the way to do right by the passengers of flight BS211 who tragically lost their lives on that day is to find out exactly how and why things went so wrong during that landing at Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan airport on Monday.

At the moment, the Nepali government’s investigation committee has said that it will take six months to ascertain the main cause of the accident.

We hope the authorities will keep in mind that this should be a top priority, and we need to get to the truth of the matter at all costs.

Unnecessary delays are not acceptable.

Right now, finger pointing and blame games are dominating the discourse, and there are too many conflicting points of view to get a clear picture of the root cause of the disaster.

What happened in Kathmandu on that fateful day should never happen again.

For now, not only do the families of the deceased deserve closure, the public is entitled to answers.

While the Nepali government investigates, we should extend all possible cooperation in the investigation to speed things up as much as possible.

It is only through finding those at fault and holding them to account that we can move forward from this unspeakably terrible tragedy.
