About Event

Dear Brothers
assalamo alaikum

The Lahore Annual Petarian get-together held on 24 December 2011 was a highly successful event. 55 Petarians / ex-teachers came over to enjoy the evening. The dinner was excellent and the food was sumptuous.

The old and young Petarians were very happy to meet each other. We also exchanged gifts with each other. The gifts were distributed through balloting. The King gift (instant geyser) was won by Dr. Khalid Jameel Akhter, Kit No.7025 (Big Brother). Petarians data was updated.

Kazi Zulkader brought copies of the Petarian Directory as a gift from Islamabad for all the Lahore Petarians. Everyone was very happy to see the book and to take a copy home.

The session started with tilawat-e-Qur’an by Mohammad Ali Khan Durrani bhai, kit no. 482/Latif. Then Wamiq Anwar welcomed all those in attendance and made a point that this will be a new beginning for the Lahore Petarians. We intend to have regular gathering henceforth.
