I am deeply shocked and disturbed after reading the news on ET of death of a senior journalist Mr. Shamim-ur-Rehman.

He was a soft spoken and a kind person who always use to share his opinion with other colleagues.

May Al-Mighty Allah rest his soul in peace and give strength to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss of life. Aameen.
