Pakistan has always wanted peace.Chairman National Kashmir Committee Pakistan further said that I am proud of this event today. Pakistani Americans living in US are emerging here in politics; you can’t get your point of view to the upper House without being part of the American political system. You also have to fight the Occupied Kashmir case.
“We supported the US in Afghan war and we suffered the most,” he added
Afridi further added that I also belong to the tribal area of Pakistan, and the country was the biggest victim of terrorism, more than 8 million innocent Pakistanis were the direct victim of terrorism, more than one and a half billion dollars direct economic losses and today fingers pointed towards Pakistan which is absolutely not right. Pakistan has always stood for peace and humanity, the state of Madinah is an example for all humanity.Houston Democratic Leader Tahir Javed addresses and praised the establishment of AIP and said that Pakistani Americans specially should have to take care of three things. First, register to vote so that you can practice constitutional right. Second, choose the right candidate so that your voice can reach to upper house. Third, if possible, contest elections and be a part of the system. Without these three things, we have no status here in US.
