  1. Many many congratulations to hunza arts and culture council for organizing such unique programmes. This is the need of hour that we have forgotten the precious teaching of rehmatulil alimeen and consequently muslims have become victem of disintegration. If we love and obey the teachings of our serkar du alam we would never be losers and defeaters.
