PESHAWAR: Speakers paid rich tributes to late Dr Salahuddin at a condolence reference arranged by the Hamdard Foundation Pakistan.

Dr Salahuddin, a widely respected health professional, writer, author, columnist, social worker and Shoora-e-Hamdard, Peshawar chairman, passed away recently at the age of 56 after a brief illness.

Prof Dr Fakhrul Islam, Director, Pakistan Study Centre, University of Peshawar, presided over the ceremony hosted at the Services Club.

Hamdard Foundation Pakistan President Saadia Rashid had come from Karachi to attend the function for a person who was impressed by her late father Hakim Mohammed Said Shaheed since school days and remained associated actively with his organisation for a long time.

Those present on the occasion included Saadia Rashid, Hakeem Abdul Waheed, Sardar Farooq Ahmad Jan Babar, Syed Mushtaq Hussain Shah Bukhari, Qari Shahid Azam al-Azhari, Malik Liaqat Tabassum, Dr Iqbal Khalil, Jawad Ahmad Khan, Prof Roshan Khattak and Prof Dr Saeed Anwar.

The family members of the late physician and writer, Dr Muhammad Noman, Dr Muhammad Arsalan (sons) and brother Allauddin were there.

The speakers termed late Dr Salahuddin a man of many qualities who spent all his life while serving the people in various capacities.

They said though late Dr Salahuddin was a doctor by profession, he also earned a name in literature, culture and enjoyed respect for the social service he rendered to all and sundry. The speakers said the late doctor had offered innumerable services and that was why his death was being mourned by everyone he had come into contact with, adding his parting would be felt for a long time.

Some of the participants presented poeticized tributes to late Dr Salahuddin. Collective dua was offered for the departed soul in the end.
