My dear brothers and sisters in Pakistan Please accept my heartiest congratulations on Eid. May this Eid mark the beginning of an era of joy and happiness. Let us pray and hope that the trouble, turbulence and turmoil we are facing in the subcontinent in general and Pakistan and Afghanistan in particular, comes to an end soon. This blood being shed is the same as yours and mine. We all grieve for the mothers who have lost their sons, the sisters who have lost their brothers and wives who have lost their husbands. I pray to Allah Almighty that peace comes to our land soon. -VIMAL SUMBLY, Ludhiana, September 21.
