No one can believe this tragic unexpected news.Mr. Minhas Zulfiqar was a very close friend of all Pakistani and sub continent community. He was very popular in Australia. This news is a shock to the community and we have lost a very generous man, who was always ready to help those in need, be it for the flood appeal or any other cause. We will miss him. He was an excellent person and a good friend, who was always helpful and forthcoming to serve our community.
