June 3, 2014
On June 3, 2014, Chairman Toaha Qureshi MBE met with HRH Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace during the Queen’s Garden Party. Although there was a spell of rain, the royal family still made their way out.
The conversation was a joy as Prince Charles lightened up the atmosphere with witty banter mixed with serious discussions. As the discussions went on, both HRH Prince Charles and Mr Qureshi touched on Pakistan’s former British High Commissioners and various cities. Prince Charles congratulated Mr Qureshi on the publication his my recent book Mera Jihad Chak 444 Say Buckingham Palace Tak . He further inquired about Mr Qureshi’s village in Pakistan and also discussed the simplicity of life in Pakistan.
The Prince himself hoped “to visit Pakistan once more” as he has only had the “privilege” to visit the country on one occasion. As the Founder of the charity Mosaic, he was pleased to learn that Mr Qureshi’s academic institution, as the lead for the South East Region, had been working with the Harris Academy to mentor students from different backgrounds to enhance employability, confidence and self efficacy.
He spoke to one of the mentors and thanked them for what they are doing and for the hard work.
