Pakistani Community in Australia is still going through a development process. There are community organisations & groups who are working in the community but their deliverables are limited to social engagements, dinner parties and non-productive functions on national days. The Community lacks impressive leadership and effective team-work in order to build a strong community organisation that can proudly lead the Pakistani Community earning respect and recognition from the multicultural Australia, at the same time, maintaining its culture, traditions, family values and awareness of our historical values.

It has been observed that the common members of the community are continuously losing interest in community organisations and find these organisations as a waste of time, and then prefer to spend time with their family-friends, relatives and professional colleagues. The risk in this attitude is that, over the period of time, our next generation will make their own-culture and social network, and that will lead to the end of our first identity. It has happened to many migrants who became history today and living in history books now.

For example the Afghans, Pushtoon, Baloch, Sindhi, came in 18th Century and become untold history today – Read ‘Australia For Pakistanis’ by Syed Atiq ul Hassan.

Therefore, it is very important to understand the values of those basic human attributes which are necessary to transfer from one generation to another. This cannot be possible without having a clear and collective vision and understanding on those factors.
