    Well its kind of so bad now adays we are really have so much of tenses and all the problems faced in Pakistan from A-Z

    But than time comes for heros like Mr.Abbas to make a recognation for the all Gilgit-Baltistan at International levels

    Our heartfelt Congratulations to you from a Gojali Youth.

    Now adays our home country does not hold any kind of reputations be it inside pakistan or out of Pakistan….Becouse if you say I am a Pakistani to any one in foreign country…i my self than dont feel secure , we the Pakistanis with current Terrorist activites have not placed a right example of our country both inside Pakistan as well as out of Pakistan.

    Its the high time to sincrely CONGRATULATE the son of
    Gilgit-Baltistan,,,its not a joke for Pakitanis being from far flung remote areas of GB to represent himself in OLYMPICS but
    ”Mr. Abbas has made his name in the History book of Pakistan to represent himself as i guess the very First pakistani to attend Pakistan at such a prestigous Champion Ship in Olympics Games in Canda.

    We really admire you and we look forward to see you in Gilgit with a Very
    Warm Welcome

    God Bless Gilgit-Baltistan
    God Bless our Heros of GB

    Well Wishers of Gojal————– Lets pray God save Gojal and GB
