The America Pakistan Business Development Forum (AMPAK-BDF) has demanded the Government of Pakistan to present Pakistani-born Deputy Chief of New York Police Nasir Saleem a civil award. Nasir Saleem is on a tour of his native country these days and recently a dinner was hosted by Zeeshan Altaf Lohya, Chairman AMPAK-BDF in his honour at a local hotel.
Addressing the gathering, Mr Lohya said that it was an honour for Nasir Salem to receive the award from the United States. He is the pride of Pakistan and has served the New York police for 40 years.
The AMPAK chief requested the Government of Pakistan to honour Nasir Saleem with a civil award for making the country proud.
The forum President Sheikh Imtiaz Hussain said, “We are proud of Nasir Saleem and his services for Pakistani diaspora should be acknowledged by our government.’
In his address, General Secretary Nasir Wajahat said that AMPAK was very much in liaison with Pakistani institutions in the United States and trying its level best to promote cordial relations between Pakistan and the United States.
Warm welcome was given to Nasir Saleem when he came to the podium to speak to the august audience. The distinguished guest said he was grateful to the America Pakistan Business Development Forum for so much encouragement and respect.
Nasir Saleem advised those who want to migrate to the US that they should keep in charities there with charities so that it will be easier to understand the culture and language of that land. His announcement that he names his US award to his motherland received a thunderous applause from the gathering.
