The last time I cross-posted a piece from Suspect Paki, it was about the ‘political’ and the alienation of British Muslims. However, this time I was moved by the sheer pain of Shahid’s personal anguish not to mention his illness. His post is direct, lyrical and very touching.

I wish him a speedy recovery..My prayers are with him.

Amazing how we don’t know some people and still care for them.
