My dear brother:
It is with an extreme sense of sorrow and grief that I have learnt of the sad demise of your beloved and reverened father, who was also like a very dear elder to me. Maulana Sahib was an eminent scholar and a true Muslim whose pious life is a beacon for all of us. He had devoted his life to serve the cause of Islam. Especially, his services towards maintaining sectarian harmony in the country would be long remembered.
May almighty Allah rest the departed soul in eternal peace and give you and the family courage and strength to bear the irreparable loss with fortitude.
(Ahmad N. Sukhera)
