Sydney( Report by PTI Australia): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (NSW) organised a colourful and record breaking cultural program on Saturday, 23rd March 2013 to commemorate 73rd Pakistan Day at Orion Function Hall, Sydney, NSW Australia.
700+ Pakistanis joined PTI NSW Team to express their solidarity with PTI and to make the program a success. A substantial amount of $50,000.00 was contributed by the generous audience and sponsors to support PTI in fulfilling its pledges to end mass corruption in Pakistan through vote.
The Program started with recitation of Holy Quran followed by a hamd, national anthems of Australia and Pakistan, speeches that highlighted the importance of Pakistan Day, cultural programs, video message of Chairman Imran Khan, a history quiz on Pakistan and a buffet dinner.
PTI NSW President, Muhammad Waqas Bashir, described achievements of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf, importance of the day and the concept of ‘Naya Pakistan’. He also emphasised that the destiny of Pakistan was in our own hands and real moment of truth had come after 66 years of tyranny. He further stated “if we don’t take a stand now then perhaps we will never get a second chance”. A loud and clear message was conveyed to the audience to get united and work collectively until the mission is accomplished.
The program was designed by the General Secretary Imran Mirza and hosted by Salik Hameed Khawaja, Faiza Cheema and Qazi Arfeen. Salik Hameed Khawaja also read and presented the poem “Wo Dut Sakta Hey Amrica Kay Aagay” of Professor Anwar Masood with English translation.
