While Australia has been lucky and managed COVID-19 very well, there were several disruptions last year with lockdown and economic disruptions.

The only positive aspect of such pandemic is that it allows to pause, reflect and appreciate life from another perspective. It made us truly appreciate religion, family, friends , community and happiness . We realise we need each other and we are for each other and we all need to support each other in the community.

Iftikhar Rana said that the Honourable Shaoquett Moselmane has usual taken the pleasure to be with us. He is true friend personally and is a true friend of Pakistan Community. Last year was also a bad year for him for he was treated unfairly and unjustly but he stood stead-fast, faced the predatory and habitual liars and he won his quest for justice with honour. I mention this because he is a good example of how always to stand on the right, how to have faith and how evil can be defeated. He is an inspiration for many in Australia including to our community. I wish we too can develop the fortitude of this great man. A big hand for the Hon. Shaoquett MP.
