  1. It is with great pride and satisfaction to know that PT has been chosen to be the runner-up in this international competition in such a short time.

    It is all due to the selfless efforts of its volunteers and contributors who have made this possible. It is indeed the hard work by the founders, Zulfiqar, Noor and many others who really made this small e-initiative to be recognized at the world level.

    It is an eye-opener for those who are biased towards PT for different reasons.

    Many many congratulations to both of you and your team of professional volunteers. May Allah bless you with more and more heights in your endeavors.
