She was gentle and decent. We were highly impressed by her virtues. She was quite alive on social, political, national and global issues. Through, Professor Shahid Akhtar, yesterday I learnt about her illness and hospitalisation in Jamia Hansard. In the morning I learnt that she is no more. Indeed her loss is irreparable to community, society and nation.”
