Pakistan High Commission renders help to affected Pakistanis

A team headed by Counsellor Nasir Mehmood Awan visited Grahamstown to assist the Pakistanis affected by recent random looting of shops. They were accompanied by Pakistan community leaders from Johannesburg and Grahamstown.  The team visited the affected areas; met the Mayor of Grahamstown; held detailed meetings with the high Officials of Administration and local Police; and met each and every individual affected Pakistani. All possible assistance was rendered to the displaced and disturbed Pakistanis. More than 200 displaced Pakistanis were immediately removed to the Stone Crescent hotel, which is owned by a Pakistani national, Tariq Hayat.

Besides the affected Pakistanis, nationals of other countries, who were also attacked, appreciated the timely efforts of the Pakistan High Commission’s team and the Pakistani community.

It is a matter of satisfaction that the local administration of Grahamstown has initiated all necessary measures to process the re-integration of displaced individuals.

The High Commission for Pakistan based in Pretoria keeps looking after the legitimate concerns of the Pakistan Community based in South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia and Swaziland. It has recently addressed issues involving the killings of Pakistanis in South Africa by sending Consular teams to the unfortunate areas.

In a detailed meeting held with Officers of the Mission, Mr Najm us Saqib, High Commissioner of Pakistan lauded the efforts of Counsellor Awan, his team and the concerned community members for their efforts to look after the interests of Pakistanis in South Africa. The High Commissioner encouraged all concerned to continue serving the Pakistanis based in Southern Africa with the same zeal and zest.
