I met Mr. Umer Cheema here in the UK during his visiti with a journalist's delegation in 2006 and found him a nice person. He is a compitent and responcible reporter and what happened with him is realy realy sad and condemnable. Unfortunately, in Pakistan the journalist community have been always under the line of fire.My own elder brother Islamabad based Senior Journalist, Resident Editor Pakistan Press International (PPI) news agency Malik Mohammad Ismail Khan (Former Bureau Chief Daily The Frontier Post) had been brutally murdered on the night of 31st October 2006 and up untill now the murderers are still at large and nothing has come from the Police investigation.I appeal to the journalist community and Especialy to the Pervez Shoukat President Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) that they have to struggle in order to find the perpretators of these henious crimes.

اسلام علیکم محترم چیمہ صاحب ہمین آپ کے ساتھ ہونے والے واقعہ کا بہت افسوس ھوا ھے ۔ لیکن سچ لکھنے مین دنیا کے اندر تو بہت تکلیف ہے لیکن اس کا اجر آپکو انشاءاللہ آخرت مین ملے گا ۔آپ براہ مہربانی اس بات کی فکر مت کریں ایک دن اس ملک مین انصاف ہوگا وہ بھی اسی صورت مین جب ہم مین سچ لکھنے اور سننے کا حوصلہ ہوگا اور وہ وقت دور نہیں جب ہم ان کرپٹ لوگوں سے چھٹکارا حاصل کرلییں گے ۔ انشاءاللہ آپکا خیرخواہ راشد محمود
