THE SIXTH MONTHLY ISLAMABAD (PI) LUNCH, Rawal Lake – July 2011
Two days have passed since our gathering and it has been raining in Islamabad off and on, and today it is incessant rain.
However, we were extremely fortunate on Saturday evening (23 July) when we had simply beautiful and cool weather with light clouds. And the Petarian gathering at the Navy Sailing Club on Rawal Lake was in a super environment.
There were 41 Petarians who showed up and many of them had their families with them. In total, the number of people in attendance was around 75 or so.
There were four people who were honoured this time as follows. Tallat had arranged bouquets of flowers for them.
Dr. Fazlur Rehman Kazi, 795 who has been recently promoted to be Ambassador of Pakistan to Cambodia
CaptPN Azizur Rehman 516 for performing Umra
Masood Zaman 7166 for performing Umra
Kausar Iqbal Malik 7220 for performing Umra
May Allah accept their umra and dua.
We were also fortunate that we had 6 visitors from outside Islamabad/Pindi area at this gathering. These were:
Abdul Rashid Abro 370 (ex-President TPA) from Karachi
Mohammed Ali Khan Durrani, 482 from Lahore
Dr. Khalilur Rehman Kazi, 6927 from Hyderabad
Flt. Lt. Ali Jan Sirhindi, 99153, visiting from Chakwal
Flying Off. Jamal Abdul Nasir, 2001054 visiting from Mianwali
Waqar Nasim Hashmi 2003066, visiting from Karachi
It is a blessing to have visitors.
During the meeting, it was decided that the next gathering will be on 17 September – which will be an Eid Milan party.
We also talked about the projects at Jhimpir, Islamabad and the scholarship
This is a wonderful tradition here in Islamabad where we are getting together every month just because we are Petarians. I must thank Tallat 590/J for the wonderful job he is doing to arrange all the logistics, food etc.
In addition to Tallat, other members of the organizing committee include Arif Masud and Mubashir Bangash and Imran Latif. Great job guys.
