“By his death, our President and our nation have lost a friend, a patriot and partner in the journey towards building a nation of our dream. His death is a great loss to our country at this time when his wise and sage counsel, calm disposition are critically needed.

I know that no words can adequately capture the grief and the pains of the loss, I however pray that the AlmightyAllah console us all, in this trying period.”
