‘Idealism and hope’ – from Eric Rahim, Glasgow

If there is any such thing as the history of the Left movement in Pakistan then the decade of the 1950’s, rather the first half of it, will be remembered as a time of idealism and hope. And Sarwar’s name will stand out as one of the most outstanding figures of the period. He will be remembered for that, but equally for his deep human sympathies to all. To all the friends who are gathered to say farewell to Sarwar, I say my thoughts are with you and I share your loss.
Eric Rahim, Glasgow
