Despite having to scale down the size of the event (due to the government’s guidelines in response to COVID-19), PAC of Atlanta was excited to celebrate the opening of our new office along with Pakistan Day on March 23, 2020. Pakistan Day is celebrated in remembrance of the historic Lahore Session, held from March 22 to March 24, 1940, which was the start of the separation of India and Pakistan. After Chairperson Rumana Habib performed the flag hoisting, we were happy and grateful to welcome Meera Jee, a popular Pakistani film star, to say a few words to the community not only about the importance of Pakistan Day, but also the importance of education, women’s’ empowerment, etc.
Thank you to Naji’s and Green Olive Kabob House for catering the event and DJ Imran Ismael for providing music. Also, thank you to our team members: Rashid Humayun, Shazia Ch, Fauzia Shafeeq, Shahzad Faisal, Ruby Iqbal, Murad Huda, Mehdi Syed, Suleman Rana, Asher Islam and the other passionate attendees. PAC is excited to host more amazing events in the future provided the situation of the current COVID-19 pandemic improves. Pakistan Zindabad!
