The Federal Minister for Inter Provincial Coordination (IPC) Dr Fehmida Mirza while congratulating Pakistan on their third consecutive win in the ongoing T20 Cricket World Cup said the victory behind the team’s success shows ‘unity, faith and discipline’ among them, which was the motto of founder of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
“I congratulate the team on the win against Afghanistan and the team looks united, disciplined and they have faith in them,” she said while addressing at a Breast Cancer Awareness Programme organized by the Atomic Energy Cancer Hospital (AECH), NORI here on Saturday.
She was of the view that behind Pakistan team’s success reflects the hard work and the motto (unity, faith and discipline) of Quaid-i-Azam.
“We had to pray for our team to win when we used to watch matches before but now the team was consistent in the wins which shows their hard work,” she said.
Speaking about the Breast Cancer Awareness, Dr Fehmida said this month of October was very important for the Breast Cancer Awareness.
“I’m too a survivor of cancer and we need to aware masses on it. As a survivor it is our responsibility to aware as much people as we can,” she said.
She said she was leading the biggest forum (Speaker of the National Assembly of Pakistan from March 2008 to June 2013) when she was diagnosed with cancer.
“It’s like a death sentence when you come to know but I was very active as we have to bring in the courage to fight the disease. I had the support of my family which gave me the strength and confidence,” she said.—APP
