      Have you noticed this killer natural disaster is shaking the earth more often nowadays comparing to earlier decades.
      What’s your opinion on reason of this?

      We are mostly seeing earthquakes in and around Himalayas, which fall in the highest earthquake risk zone- zone 5. Then, surrounding Indo-Gangetic plains and low lying areas in Nepal, India, Pakistan are also in zone 4, the second most risky zones.
      Also, I had read long ago that from 2000 to 2050, the Himalayan and surrounding areas would experience a number of earthquakes- big and small, and this is what is happening now a days. I shudder at the thought of a major quake with epicenter near any major North Indian city- the results would be devastating.

      The environment changes the movement of the land. It can came from the ocean sometimes, volcanic eruption or fault line. It is the changes in nature that can caused it too.

      My state, Sabah, had never been known for earthquake activities but it struck Ranau, Sabah, Malaysia with a moment magnitude of 6.0 on 5 June 2015. We are not safe anymore.

      Not exactly sure but what I’ve learned is that the Himalayan Mountain range that we have is very young and is full of energy. The increase in earthquake is because of the increased activities in the Himalayan plates. It is just the energy of “Young Himalaya” that are causing these earthquakes. Other theory ( religion based) is that people are becoming sinner day by day, and it is just a God’s way to punish those sinners ( I don’t believe in this theory)

        @bharatsharma I hear that ridiculous statement abut God and its punishment as the face of earthquake.
