    Dear Aziz, Laila and Shireen bai,
    I am deeply shocked to know that our beloved Vazir Ahmed Ali Merchant passed away to his heavenly abode. This is an enormous loss to you, his friends and the community at large.He was a true friend, very humble and a very devout Ismaili. His contribution to the community was immense for a long period of time in numerous Jamati Institutions particularly in Education. I was fortunate to work with him very closely in Aga Khan Education Services and Ismailia Association for Pakistan. I attended many meetings with him in the Huzur of Hazer Imam including one of 7 days in France in 1973.
    His loss would be felt by the family and friends and the community on the whole for a very long time to come.

    I pray to Mowlana Hazar Imam to rest the departed soul in eternal peace and grant you and all the members of the family and friends strength, courage and fortitude to bear the irreparable loss-Ameen.

    Mushtaq Ali Jindani
