  5. A very very sad and shocking news, to loose such a nice person. I knew her since 2006 and found her a very kind and loving person. May God give her rest in peace. Amen

  6. It was shocking to hear on the national electronic media that the first lady governer of Gilgit-Baltistan, Dr. Shama Khalid passed awayin Islamabad on Wednesday 15th September 2010.
    May Almighty Allah Bless her soul in eternal peace, Amien! Although her services to GB was a short one, but by and large it remained peaceful and people of the area welcomed her as a daughter of GB.
    What is next? the FG Cabinet should be thinking seriously on different personalities of the region for this most important position.
    I would like to present the following two names for the next Gverner:
    1- Prof. Usman Ali (Because of his literary contributions to GB in particular and Pakistani language and culture in general).
    2- Mr. Nazir Sabir Hunzai (Because of his knowledge of the area; being a hero climber, who has scaled most of the highest peaks of the world and for his linguistic know-how, such as, Urdu, English, Japanese, French, German, Brushaski, Wakhi and many more) He is a man of character, nickname and famous worldwide).
    I hope, other citizens of the area will also express their views enabling the FG to decide about a person, whose past is neat and clean and is patriotic to GB and the country at large.

  7. MAY ALLAH REST HER SOUL IN ETERNAL PEACE…

    MY CONDOLLENCE TO ALL THE FAMILY MEMBERS OF DR.SHAAMA KHALID.
    GOD GIVE YOU COURAGES TO OVER COME THE LOSESS FOR THE IMPORTANT FIGURE OF OUR GILGIT -BALTISTAN.
