CAPA pays tribute to Dr Mehdi Ali Qamar

From the comments section in the Dawn, Mian Waheed, President, Community Association of Pakistani Americans (CAPA), pays a moving tribute to the memory of Dr Mehdi Ali Qamar.

Incidentally, we visited the CAPA (Central Ohio) web-page and there seems to be a very healthy Pak-Am community (with nice pictures celebrating the 66th birthday of Pakistan).

A community which will be forever scarred by the memories of a good life which came to an end too quickly and brutally (we did not know that he died in front of his family...truly shocking, the killers should have just had mercy and killed all of them).

I am making this announcement with a very heavy and grieving heart that one of our Pakistani community member, a friend of mine, an intelligent person, a friendly guy and a poet with a very soft and romantic heart, Dr. Mehdi Ali Qamar has been assassinated in Pakistan a couple of days ago. 

Dr. Mehdi was on a visit to Pakistan with his wife and kids and had gone to graveyard of his ancestors to say prayers for them when two persons on a motorcycle opened fire on him. Dr. Mehdi died in front of his family.

This will be a very shocking news to the Pakistani community of Ohio, he was well known to a lot of us. Our prayers are with the family and hope the assassins of Dr. Mehdi will be captured and brought to justice swiftly.
