The Name Of Allah The Beneficent, The Merciful
is my distinct honor to address you all from the position of president of
PSA. Having been raised as an
objective child protégé of the ever vacillating Houston Pakistani
politic I find this transition quite innate.
As our Pakistani community increases in size we find ourselves
wavering in the expanded peripheries of this diversity.
It is this variety within the Pakistani culture, however, that
makes us people of great passion and conviction.
Allah in his creation of Mother Pakistan consummated one nation,
which spawned a mélange of talent and intellect capable of reaching vast
students across the world are the keys to the cultivation, promulgation,
and survival of this grand heritage.
The university thus finds itself as the hub of the future of
Pakistan and Pakistanis around the world.
taking office earlier this month it has been my mission to provide that
the future of our great culture has its own safe haven here at the University
of Houston. PSA Inshallah
will follow in the grand tradition of our past and present Pakistani
brethren in leadership, service, and scholarly excellence.
We have already participated in numerous endeavors to insure that
our Pakistani student drive and ability also serve to benefit humanity.
In early September the Pakistan Students Association was the
backbone of the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital fund-raiser to continue
the fight against cancer back home. Additionally
we have actively supported and taken part in efforts with Projects for the
Needy to ameliorate the suffering of our fellow Muslimeen throughout the
world. Two weeks ago members
of PSA dressed in traditional garb and walked through downtown with PAVA
to show our support of Allah’s one race, the human race.
Allah willing we will continue to serve our community as much as we
can with the PSA volunteer core.
PSA looks towards the new millennium with aspirations of unity and
civility amongst our people here and abroad.
PSA in all of our productions looks to revel in the glorious
heritage of our homeland with all Pakistanis.
We look to portray the God-given aptitudes and artistry of our
Pakistani contemporaries to the best of our ability.
As we approach the next century we must move forward with hope and
harmony. In PSA we find the heart of our future as Pakistanis of the
world. Together we truly can
accomplish any feat, may Allah grant us the wisdom, perseverance, and
courage to do so. Thank you
all for your support of PSA. Inshallah
we will have a landmark year. PAKISTAN
