The Miracle - - Special -

Au­gust 14, High Com­mis­sioner Tariq Azim Khan hoisted, the na­tional flag at the High Com­mis­sion for Pak­istan at Ottawa to mark 70th An­niver­sary of Pak­istan’s In­de­pen­dence. Na­tional an­them was played on the oc­ca­sion. While ad­dress­ing the In­de­pen­dence Day cer­e­mony the High Com­mis­sioner said that Pak­istan is pro­gress­ing in all ar­eas of life and we should be proud of our re­silient na­tion. He said that there are ar­eas which need im­prove­ment but slowly and steadily we are mak­ing progress. He said that our found­ing fathers built the Coun­try from scratch at the time of in­de­pen­dence, we lacked for­mal in­sti­tu­tional ca­pac­ity, and we had no real cap­i­tal. Yet in last 70 years we have pro­gressed and de­vel­oped to a stage that to­day we are a nu­clear ca­pa­ble mis­sile power, he added. “We have con­sol­i­dated our heavy me­chan­i­cal in­dus­try and now build­ing state of the art sub­marines and fighter jets. Our in­dus­try has not only ful­filled the do­mes­tic re­quire­ments but we are also ex­port­ing our prod­ucts to other coun­tries” he un­der­lined. He urged the com­mu­nity mem­bers to work to­gether for build­ing true im­age of Pak­istan which is re­flec­tive of our na­tional strides. To com­mem­o­rate Pak­istan’s In­de­pen­dence Day at the Cana­dian Par­lia­ment, the Cana­dian Armed Forces pre­sented cer­e­mo­nial guard. The High Com­mis­sioner Tariq Azim Khan and the High Com­mis­sion Of­fi­cials wit­nessed the Cana­dian mil­i­tary drill from the VIP sec­tion. A huge num­ber of Cana­di­ans and com­mu­nity mem­bers were also present on the oc­ca­sion. It may be men­tioned that the Com­mand­ing Of­fi­cer of Cer­e­mo­nial Guard on be­half of all sol­diers ex­tended in­vi­ta­tion to the High Com­mis­sioner to view the change of guard cer­e­mony on 70th an­niver­sary of Pak­istan’s In­de­pen­dence.
