Subject: Message of condolence
We are extremely distressed to hear the news that Comrade Zia, the Chairman of the Communist (Maoist) Party of Afghanistan has died of a heart attack recently. With immense grief, we express our revolutionary homage to Comrade Zia, heartfelt condolences to the whole rank and file of your party and the entire bereaved relatives and family members of Comrade Zia.
The death of Comrade Zia is an extremely grievous event that has incurred a huge loss to the International Communist Movement. You have correctly said that comrade Zia's death is a huge loss not only to the entire proletariat and the oppressed people of Afghanistan but also to those of the entire world and ICM as a whole. But, howsoever painful it may be, and a loss of whatever magnitude it may impart upon us, we have to overcome it and transform all the woes into strength by tirelessly pursuing his revolutionary legacy to the last. Our party is confident that a firm grasp of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and resolute commitment to the emancipation of the entire workers and the oppressed people of Afghanistan and the world will enable your party and the revolutionary people of Afghanistan to overcome the loss and take the revolution forward from where Comrade Zia has left.
With proletarian internationalist greetings!
