On August 25, 2018, the Arizona Pakistani communitycelebrated its 71th anniversary of independence from British rule and hosted a grand commemoration in Scottsdale, AZ.

The celebration started with a documentary about Pakistan in the evening. During the celebration, the capital of Scottsdale expressed his best wished to the Pakistan. In turn, several Pakistan also gave their special capes for thanks. In the celebration, the excellent talk show promoted everyone to know Pakistan more deeply with American humor.  The diligence, courage, and wisdom of the Pakistan are fully shown in the celebration.

Pakistan officially the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, is a countryin South Asia. The name Pakistan literally means “land of the pure” in Urdu and Persian. Pakistan is divided into three major geographic areas: the northern highlands, the Indus River plain, and the Balochistan Plateau. The climate varies from tropical to temperate, with arid conditions in the coastal south. The diversity of the landscape and climate in Pakistan allows a wide variety of trees and plants to flourish.

Pakistan is an influential and founding member of theOrganization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Maintaining cultural, political, social, and economic relations with the Arab World and other countries in the Muslim world is a vital factor in Pakistan’s foreign policy. Muhammad Ali Jinnah as the president of the Muslim League after independence in 1947, became the nation’s first Governor-General as well as the first President-Speaker of the Parliament made his first speech as

You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed – that has nothing to do with the business of the State.

Immigrants from areas that are now part of Pakistan had been migrating to America as early as the eighteenth century. The Pakistani American community generally lives in a comfortable middle-class, upper-middle-class and upper-class lifestyles.Many Pakistani Americans follow the residence pattern set by other immigrants to the United States that when they increase their wealth, they are able to own or franchise small businesses. According to American Factfinder, Pakistani Americans are high achievers academically and tend to be better educated as compared to other heritage groups in the United States with 87.4% being at least high school graduates and 60.9% holding a bachelor’s degree or higher professional degree.

Pakistan was the first country to have established formal diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China, and the relationship continues to be warm since 1962.

 

2018825日,亚利桑那州巴基斯坦社区在亚利桑那州斯科茨代尔举办了脱离英国统治独立71周年的盛大纪念活动。

庆祝晚会在一个叙述巴基斯坦的纪录片中来开了帷幕. 在整台晚会的过程中,Scottsdale的市长发表了对巴基斯坦人民的衷心祝福,巴基斯坦民众则送上了非常有特色的披肩表示感谢。非常精彩的脱口秀,让大家感受到美式幽默的同时,对巴基斯坦有了更进一步的了解。整台晚会在一片祥和的氛围里展现了巴基斯坦人民的勤劳,勇敢,智慧。

巴基斯坦的官方全称是巴基斯坦伊斯兰共和国,是南亚的一个国家。巴基斯坦这个名字乌尔都语和波斯语里的意思是“纯粹的土地” 巴基斯坦分为三个主要地理区域:北部高地,印度河平原和俾路支高原。它们气候各异,从热带到温带,沿海南部则处于常年干旱的环境中。巴基斯坦的景观和气候的多样性使得各种各样的树木和植物都能蓬勃发展。

巴基斯坦是伊斯兰合作组织(OIC)的有影响力和创始成员。维护与阿拉伯世界和穆斯林世界其他国家的文化,政治,社会和经济关系是巴基斯坦外交政策的重要因素。巴基斯坦是一个宗教信仰自由度相对比较高的国家。穆罕默德·阿里·真纳(Muhammad Ali Jinnah)作为1947年独立后穆斯林联盟的总统,成为国家第一任总督以及第一任总统议长,他的第一次演讲里,他说到

你是自由的;在今日的巴基斯坦,你可以自由到所属寺庙,你可以自由去所属清真寺,或任何其他崇拜的地方。你可能属于任何宗教、种姓或信仰;这与国家事务互不相干。

早在十八世纪,来自巴基斯坦地区的移民就已迁移到美国。巴基斯坦裔美国人社区通常生活在舒适的中产阶级,中上阶层和上层阶级。许多巴基斯坦裔美国人遵循其他移民美国的居住模式. 他们中勤俭,并且合理的支配他们的收入懂得合理的储蓄使他们能够拥有或特许经营小企业。据美国Factfinder报道,与其他移民相比,巴基斯坦裔美国人在学业上不仅取得了很高的成就,并且往往受到更好的教育。在美国的巴基斯坦裔87.4%的人至少是高中毕业生,60.9%的人拥有学士学位或更高的专业学位。

巴基斯坦是第一个与中华人民共和国建立正式外交关系的国家,自1962年以来,中巴友谊一直都在良好的氛围里互帮互助。
