Gilgit-Baltistan got independence from Dogra Raj on 1st November 1947. Remembering the heroes of war of Independence a cultural festival was organized by the youth of GB in Lahore. The cultural festival was organized in Alhamra Art Center Lahore. The diaspora of GB in Lahore and other communities came to attend it. Among guests, Mayor of Lahore colonel (retd) Mubashir Javed, famous poet of GB Zafar Waqar Taj, Chairman of standing committee GB, Ashraf Sada and Executive Director of Alhamra Art Center were present.
The event started with a Hareep– local welcome melody, afterwards popular singers like Jabir Khan Jabir, Ghafoor Chilasi, Mubarak Ali Sawan, Salman Paras mesmerized audience with their magical voices. People on the sidelines of the performances also visited the stall of Mamtu De Hunza, famous for traditional food of GB. The famous sword dance and cultural dance were also presented.
Muhammad Khawar, an emerging young talent from GB, along his team presented a play ‘Bol k Hum aik Hain’ which infused new energy and enthusiasm among audience and by then Hall was packed. Other artists also showcased their talent.
Mayor of Lahore while addressing the audience became emotional, reminding his old days in GB. He also appreciated the students of GB for organizing the event. The disciplined and sober crowd became a little unrest when Ashraf Sada took the podium. As he went on explaining the blessings of PML (N) descended on GB. The count of blessings included appointment of 10 DCO’S instead of one as if increasing non-local bureaucrats is a sign of empowerment and emancipation of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan.
Before leaving the stage he announced 5 Lac rupees for the management team, but still it could not stop the “go nawaz go” slogans raised form a corner of the Hall.
