ISLAMABAD: With reference to your report that Prem Chand’s coffin was marked ‘kafir’, may I say that this is indeed very painful and we should all be ashamed of this — if it actually happened. Someone’s religion is never to be discriminated against, and yet we continue to do so in Pakistan. The man who died was young and was a Pakistani. He was a dedicated, young leader.
