KARACHI - If Pakistanis work together, there is no limit to what they can achieve. Thats the message from the 2011 Azm Awards, which were given out at a special gala award ceremony in Karachi recently. The Azm Awards, organised by Pakistans social movement, Azme Alishan, were designed to celebrate the nations unsung heroes ordinary Pakistanis who do extraordinary things to help others in Pakistan. and promote a more positive image of the country around the world, says a press release. Among those chosen to receive the awards through a public vote were a widower who devotes his life to helping victims of terrorism, individuals who have established charities to promote education in Pakistan and a prominent British-Pakistani who serves as a director of Islamic Relief. All made it through a tough selection process that included an initial public nomination period, a short-listing phase and the final public vote conducted over the first few weeks of March. What distinguishes these awards from others is that they are chosen by the public and targeted at those ordinary Pakistani unsung heroes who dont normally get recognised for the great and selfless work they do said Taher A. Khan, chief patron of the Azme Alishan movement. Thats exactly what Azme Alishan is all about demonstrating that theres so much good in our country today if we only take the time to look for it.
