I am deeply saddened by the murder of Raja Assad Hameed, a reporter of The Nation, Islamabad. When I read the brief introduction about his professional and personal life, tears welled up in my eyes. May Allah rest his soul in eternal peace and bestow the family and friends with the courage to bear this irreparable loss. Amen The killers must be apprehended and punished so that no further incident of this kind shall ever happen again in future. -MUHAMMAD WASEEM ELAHI, Gujranwala, via e-mail, March 28.
