SADIQABAD  -   Maulana Samiul Haq was a great religious scholar, and his murder is a huge loss not only to Pakistan but also to the Muslim world. "Ulema like him are born rarely; he spent his whole life in propagation of the teachings of Islam."

These views were expressed by Mian Farhad Ali, a renowned businessman and member of Rahim Yar Khan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, during a media talk here the other day. He paid rich tributes to the religious and political services of deceased Maulana, and prayed for rest of his soul in eternal peace.
