Dr. Qaiser Sajjad expressed that Syeda Naqvi’s departure is a significant loss, describing her as a role model and a compassionate woman.

Tariq Rehmani reflected on the moments spent with Syeda, stating that they are indelibly etched in his memory. He emphasized their 40-year relationship and the honorary status of a brother that Syeda bestowed upon him. The phrase uttered at the last moments was, “O Allah, show me a miracle.” Syeda Naqvi’s daughter, Maryam, shared that it was the first time they attended the Arts Council without her mother. She expressed the joy of witnessing the love for her mother and highlighted their pride in Syeda’s selfless and compassionate nature, always concerned for others.
