  WHEREAS, The community of people who came to New York  from  Pakistan,
or  who  have  ancestral  ties  to  the  homeland, share their cherished

life in our great country; and

while fostering an appreciation for this ancient  culture  among  future

of its members as they hold appropriate ceremonies to  commemorate  this
