    The Prince Khush Ahmad ul Mulk was so representative of that cohort of native rulers who by the example of their lives and labours maintained the great and genuine dignity of the traditional cultural identities of the greater Indian sub-continent. Such a great and endearing example, indeed, must His late Highness have been to his subjects. Hopefully, the strong cohesive influence which such individuals as the late ruler of Chitral state embodied for their subjects will live on so that the dignity vested in them will long endure. May Almighty God grant him eternal peace.

    الله مرحوم کو جنت میں اعلیٰ مقام دے، ان کے ساتھ سینکڑوں ملاقاتوں میں انہوں نے چترال کھووار سے والہانہ محبت کا اظہار کرتے رہے،، اپ کو کچھ اپنوں سے نہت گلا تھا، لیکن ایوں کے لوگوں کے ساتھ ان کی بے پناہ محبت تھی. اپ نے بارہا یہ بات کہی تھی کہ میرے مرنے کے بغد ان کی چار ایکڑ زمین ایون کے عید گاہ میں شامل کی جاے، جو اسے اپنی زندگی میں اسے ایسا کرنے سے روکا جارہا ہے.شہزادہ صاحب محترم کو
    سے بہت محبت تھی ، اسلئے زبان عام میں پھولوں کا شہزادہ بھی کھا جاتا تھا Floriculture
