“My wife and I am still in shock that our beloved son is no more with us, but when we think that he made a great sacrifice for our motherland, we are satisfied. We are grooming his daughter to follow in the footprints of her father,” Arshad Hussain Shah, the writer of the Biography of ‘Fateh-i-Zaramsar’ and father of Major Wasif Hussain Shah told the launching ceremony here. Educationists, lawyers, students and people from different walks of life attended the ceremony.
