Pakistan Day marked in Canada

Pakistan Day was celebrated with zeal and fervour at the High Commission,
Ottawa and the three Consulates in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
The High Commissioner Mr. Zaheer A. Janjua hoisted the national flag to the
tune of the national anthem. A large number of Pakistani diaspora and Canadians
including member of the parliament Mr. Sameer Naqvi, attended the ceremony.
Messages of the President and the Prime Minister of Pakistan were also read out. In his
message, Ambassador Janjua, paid rich tribute to the nation’s founding fathers,
especially Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Mohammad Iqbal, for their
vision and untiring struggle for the creation of Pakistan. Underscoring the significant
strides the country has made over the decades across multiple fields, the High
Commissioner highlighted the resilience and resolve of the Pakistanis to bounce back
stronger in the face of challenges.
He also lauded the contributions of dynamic and vibrant Pakistani diaspora
across Canada for serving as a bridge between the two countries and promoting
Pakistan in their adopted homeland.
