  1. dear Mr. Bari, The point is not goal scoring or becoming famous or any kind of publicity as these two individual don’t need that because of their humble nature. It was a correction only just to explain that those two individuals are not actually Canadians rather Chitralies. I don’t think its inappropriate to mention their names and their relations as we don’t see apparent reason for a Canadian citizen to help flood affected people of a remote district in the most northern part of Pakistan unless there is some link there. Otherwise why wouldn’t any John, mike, Thomas etc. help these people. You may be right in your own context but I feel that could be true if the donation comes through an Organisation or NGO. Thank you.

  2. bo jm korum rushdan lal and sehrish kai go ahead with the same gesture, abdul bari brar it is necessary to mention that they are pakistani citizen belong to morder chitral,i think there is nothing wrong to introduce someone in a correct way.

  3. “Do good and care not to whom”. I do not think it was necessary to mention the people who collected the donations for the flood victims of Chitral. We appreciate their gesture but insisting to mention their names, saying they are related to XYZ is no appropriate at all.

  4. Thanks sehresh Roshdan Canadian people and Biyar local Support Organization for their support of flood victims in the area.

  5. Dear Editor,
    It would have been better if you could have added to the above news that Mr. Rushdan Ali Tariq and Mrs. Sehrish Rushdan Tariq are not only Canadian citizens rather they have roots here and they belong to Morder and are the Nephew and daughter in law of Ex-MPA Chitral Zain ul Abidin.
    Thank you and kind regards,
    Saif.
