It is very important to humanize and put a face to each and every 103 victims of the ambulance bombing. They are not mere numbers but are brothers, sisters, mot...hers, fathers, sons and daughters. Here’s one of my students who lost his life last Saturday to the horrific attack.

Fayaz Ahmad Farzam was my student last semester at Kardan MBA. He was a smart, and energetic young guy who was eager to help his family and serve this country. I’m told he is survived by his newly wed wife and a one year old baby daughter. It pains me to see him gone and know that his daughter will grow up not remembering her father.

Rest In Peace young man. We can only pray for you and your family.
