Pakistan has seen tragedy, tears and blood. The last five decades have jolted us as a nation over and over and seems like it is still not over. We have seen many tragedies as a nation with thousands of our soldiers embracing martyrdom to huge politicians laying down their lives and popular and brave and steadfast journalists meeting tragic ends. We are in the year 2022 and it is still not over as a prominent journalist Arshad Sharif was shot dead in Kenya while he was in exile. The journalist belongs to an army family where his father Muhammad Sharif Tamgha e Imtiaz Military was a naval commander. His brother Major Ashraf Sharif embraced Shahadat in the line of duty as he was coming for his father’s janaza and Arshad Sharif buried two people of his household in one day. Arshad Sharif, the last man of his house has also embraced Shahadat today leaving a widow mother, wife and five kids.
This massive tragedy has left the nation jolted. Like all common Pakistanis, our celebrities also took to social media and shared their devastation over the tragedy. Celebs prayed for Arshad Sharif and asked for justice to be done.
This is what they had to say:
May Allah bless Arshad Sharif a high place in Jannah and may justice be served soon!
