  4. I don’t understand why this gentleman is being praised? is it because he is a security supervisor? or is because he is holding the torch?
    What is his achievement?????????

  5. Dear Afzal,

    Congratulations! Being a team member of International Olympic Committee [IOC] from a remote valley of Gilgit-Baltistan with a Canadian accreditation and becoming Security Superviser of the event is an honour for the entire people of GB. If I am not mistaken, you are the one and only from Northern Pakistan working for Olympic Games in Whistler. I personally appreciate God gifted abilities of Mr. Afzal. He is not only a famous Wakhi poet and sports man of our region but also a good human being.

    Well done for being an ambassador of peace and representative of GB in International Olympic Games.

    THANKS

  12. @Ask yourself….
    go through your own writings and spelling before you criticize others, as your identity suggests, you really need to ask yourself, its always easy to point out mistakes in others but be positive and see how and what have you written…stop criticizing for the sake of criticize , come up with some sensible solution,suggestions and recommendations and if that is not possible for you(it seems so) then better to keep silence(silence is better than bad words).

    but i agree with you just taking a snap with the Olympic torch is not an extraordinary achievement to be put on a news blog.

  13. As we are proud of our brother Afzal karim from shimshal to represent the Pakistani nation in Olympic as a security officer and being brave and talent on the behalf of my family RUMI i congratulate you and keep it up and enjoy
    thanks

  14. @ “Ask Yourself”

    First, you should know that writing in capital letters is tantamount to shouting. That’s the first norm taught to kids while they start learning internet.

    Second, kindly point out “most of the text” that is not spelled right. I am sure you are an extraordinary “Angrezidan”.

    Third, celebrating small happinesses of ordinary citizens of Gilgit – Baltistan is not something that we should be ashamed of. Every achievement is relative and smaller as compared to another ‘achievement’. Not everyone is able to do extraordinary deeds, like you might have done!!

    Fourth, Pamir Times represents all segments of the society. It is not only for the so-called educated people who are even afraid to write their names in public, like you.

    Many dream of the downfall of Pamir Times but our vision is clear, our aims are high and our will is strong. As a team we will learn from our mistakes and grow. I can assure you that. We may not be the perfect blog, we are the perfect learners.

  15. There always exist a different kind of people behind those who want to do something appreciateable for their community or nation. These activities can be educational,political etc. These discouraging people actually belong to such a minor developed environment, thats why they don,t want to encourage those who try to achieve any kind of goals or do something good. We must know that succeeding only in education is not the only aspect of life. There are many other fields where people have got appreciations and have made their nation proud.
    I wonder why someone above has expressed a huge sorrow about Afzal. If he feels that people should not appreciate him and he has done something illigle then we welcome this gentleman to do something like Afzal. Criticizing people is very easy but competing someone becomes difficult. I appreciate your criticism but welcome you to present any effort according to your opinions and knowledge.

  16. @ ask yourself! just straight words!
    the man who is Ashamed of his own name and Identity will never value and appreciate others achievements!since he himself has no any accomplishments or achievements,i believe being frustrated and despondent such things evolve in the heads!!

    *BEING PART OF AN INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC GAME committee IS AN ACHIEVEMENT MY FRIEND! why not others????

  17. its all THUMBS UP 4 Mr Afzal kareem. i know him as a poetic nd tempting personality who hz d creative ability to shape Whakhi language into multi dimensional poetic thoughts.Such people are indeed the reflection of our region,which the west has so failed to understand.EAST-WEST gap is nonthing else than IGNORANCE-as the IMAM of time ,terms.a human body with-a muslim NAME is thought to a TERRORIST there!! pity SHAH RUKH KHAN tasted d same wellcome toffee.GO great AFzal u can make the world we are peace lovers nd givers.

    @ask urself
    d way u mke words go out of ur mind,vd stranded nd paralysed bones shows nothing else than a mere wordy filth.lets think broder nd b optimist——-GOOD 4 health(heart pal)

  18. Dear Afzal,
    hope you will fine with the grace of god,i prowd of you to your great parfomence,god give you long life,
    yours karim
