Turkish Freedom Flotilla acknowledged in Islamabad

Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed has said that the historic Freedom Flotilla in 2010 was a bold attempt by the Turkish humanitarian organization (IHH) not only to provide relief items to the long-suffering people of Gaza but to highlight the Palestinian cause at international level. He was making the Keynote Speech at a seminar on “Middle East Today with special perspective of Turkey and Pakistan”. Turkish Ambassador to Pakistan, Sadik Babur Girgin was Chief Guest on the occasion.

He was of the view that due to Turkish government’s firm stand on the Freedom Flotilla, Israel was forced to apologize on the insane attack which resulted in death and injury of innocent humanitarian workers, following huge condemnation by the international community.

IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, established in 1992 and officially registered in Istanbul in 1995, is a Turkish NGO, whose members are predominantly Turkish Muslims, active in more than 100 countries to provide humanitarian relief in areas of war, earthquake, hunger, and conflict. Currently, Mr. Mehmet Kara represents the IHH in Pakistan.

Nadeem Ahmed Khan, Chairman of Khubaib Foundation, who was present in the flotilla, also spoke to the seminar and praised the courageous role of the Turkish government during the movement of Freedom Flotilla.
