|In the name of Tsunami victims…|
President “Kite fliers’ association of Pakistan” Mr. Taufeeq Ahmed has announced that central committee of KFAP has decided to cancel traditional BASANT celebrations in context of the Tsunami Disaster. “All members of KKA would donate their BASANT funds in the relief works for the sufferers of Tsunami disaster” – he declared.
We hope the business community and in particular MULTI-NATIONAL companies will be kind enough to refrain from encouraging such gestures / ventures which could bring a bad name to our nation in respect of our response to the effects of TSUNAMIC CATASTROPHE.
He added that Mr. Vijay Kumar, President “BASANT Hindu Festival Society of India” (BHFSI) and Mr. Wahajul Islam - Chairman “Dacca Kite Fliers’ society” (D.K.F.S.) of Bangladesh has shown serious concern over the “Flurry of BASANT activities” in Pakistani E-media despite the devastated situation of Asia.
“It is high time that Pakistan Electronic Media should reflect the public sentiments in view of the historical disaster in the South East Asia.” he observed.
