We are lucky to be custodians of a rich tradition of philanthropy, of sacrifice for the love of humanity. But in these times of political uncertainty when the nation needs such role models, there are very few of them on our public stage. One can mention the name of Imran Khan and Abdul Sattar Edhi right away but the list ends here from where it began. Quite shamefully, we continue to harangue against the West but never follow its tradition of public service and welfare that shows the love for humanity of its leading public personalities. -MUHAMMAD ALI CHOHAN, Lahore, May 24
