Problems raising ugly head as issues are not taken seriously: Lord Nazir

LONDON: Current global political and economic situation, forces Pakistani and Kashmiri community in Britain not only to remain well-informed but it needs everyone be practical and have an eye on issues, said Lord Nazir Ahmed, a British Peer and renowned community leader.
Lord Nazir Ahmed was addressing a reception hosted by senior community leaders Chaudhry Dilpazeer and Chaudhry Afzaal in honour of newly elected office bearers of Pakistan Press Club UK.
“Daily allegations are being leveled on our community but in spite of making things better we are living in our own paradise”, Lord Nazir said, adding the bloody drama playing in Syria is a wake up call for all community members as anyone take advantage of this situation and start blob blats in Britian and call himself a Muslim and I did it for the sake of Allah and Muslim community would have nothing to do except frustration.
British Media has started giving indication citing that any youth from Muslim community of Britain get inspired by what is happening in Syria and raise arms, Lord Nazir said, adding it is early stage we have to take stock of the situation.
“I have always raised voice against the illiteracy of youth of community and their involvement in drug addiction, and British and Pakistani media is witness of my efforts”, he said, adding that it is unfortunate community is not considering the problems of youth as a collective problem but think it is an individual issue. He said if this attitude prevails community has to face multi-faceted problems.
