14 August 2015

Pakistan’s Independence Day was celebrated at the High Commission of Pakistan in Pretoria today. The presence of children, ladies and a huge number of resident Pakistanis, all attired in traditional Pakistani dresses, along with selected South African guests and Ulama-e-Deen participated in a beautifully organized event by the Team High Commission. High Commissioner of Pakistan H.E. Najm us Saqib hoisted the national flag with the playing of the national anthem. Messages of the President and the Prime Minister were read out on the occasion. Special milli naghmey were sung; Azadi cake was cut; and speeches on Azadi were delivered with focus on building a strong Pakistan.

The High Commissioner congratulated members of the Pakistani community on the Independence Day and urged them to renew their commitment to serve their country and to make it a peaceful, stronger and prosperous Pakistan in line with the cherished objectives of their forefathers.

Speaking at the occasion, the High Commissioner, inter alia, stated “Today’s Pakistan is confronted with numerous challenges. However, the country is endowed with immense opportunities as well. Pakistan has paid a very heavy price in flesh and blood in fighting terrorism over the last decade. Nonetheless, Pakistan remains committed to bringing this fight to an end through all available means both internally, regionally as well as internationally. A monumental effort is underway through operation “Zarb-e-Azb” to eliminate all terrorists and their hideouts.

The High Commissioner urged the community members to unite and keep building a platform that could become the voice of over 100,000 Pakistanis in South Africa. He stressed that unity among the community would pave the way to progress and to attain a respectful place in South Africa for the overseas Pakistanis.

The ceremony concluded with prayers for the prosperity and progress of Pakistan.
