    I want to congrate the scouts for placing such an example to all those who are selfish and don’t think for the betterment of the North Pakistan. Today the world is facing an economic crisis and if we remain alone and never thought about the unity we will be unable to overcome this crisis.

    At last but not least, I wish you all Happy Imamat Day Mubarak.
