He said “Castro, a living communist legend, who has achieved immortal historical achievements for the development of world socialism. He was the great person of our era, and people and history will remember him forever,”

On the sad demise of the great communist leader, the earlier announcement that the CPP flag at the Communist Party Secretariat in Attock Cantt to fly at half-mast for 7 days to mourn the Fidel Castro’s death has now been extended till December 4 to show our party solidarity with the peoples of Cuba.

He said “SUMMING up the life of Fidel Castro in this space is indeed a difficult task, for the Marxist revolutionary was an international icon whose appeal transcended cultures and ideologies, and whose feats were numerous.”

Fidel Castro, the bearded revolutionary icon who imposed socialism on Cuba and survived assassination attempts, an invasion, and isolation as the stubborn nemesis of 10 US presidents, has at last died. Comrade Castro was 90.

Engineer Jameel said “The Pakistani communist and people have lost a good and true comrade. Comrade Castro will live forever in history.”

He added that Pakistan witnessed the Cuban humanitarian spirit first hand, when over a million people were treated by Cuban doctors in the aftermath of the 2005 Kashmir earthquake.

Engineer Jameel said that “He was not living as billionaire laundering money off into a Panamanian bank account or anything like that; he was good for the people.”

“There will be no one else like him. We will feel his physical absence,”
