HAFIZ MUHAMMAD IMRAN

Pakistani Ambassador to Sweden and Finland Dr Zahoor Ahmed visited Hallunda Church in Stockholm and spoke with the Pakistani Christian community. The Ambassador was greeted by Pastor Boaz Kamran and other members of the congregation.

Speaking on the occasion, Ambassador Zahoor Ahmed said Pakistan appreciates the contributions of its Christian people. The white part of the Pakistani flag represented all minorities, including the Christian community, which were an asset to the country. He stressed that the Pakistani Christian community has always played a determining role in the development of the country, especially in the fields of health and education. The institutions they created have always been an example of excellence and distinction.

He pointed out that the Pakistani community in Sweden is a bridge between their home country and Sweden and portrays a soft and positive image of Pakistan.

Pakistan is a diverse country that believes in world peace and dialogue between religions and civilizations. He reiterated that the Embassy will maintain regular interactions with all segments of the community and work together to promote relations between Pakistan and Sweden in all areas.

He noted that he had not been able to physically meet with members of the community earlier due to restrictions related to the pandemic and that he was happy to attend the first congregation after the restrictions were relaxed.

At the end, prayers were offered for the peace and prosperity of Pakistan, Sweden and the whole world.
