Re: Pakistanis in Basel?

There are many Pakistanis in the forum, but you'll need to draw them out. My advice is to get specific - organise a Pakistani dinner and invite everyone, Pakistani or not. That way you'll get to meet both Pakistani people and those who appreciate Pakistani culture. If you click on Events up top you can start one.

thanks Masood, Yes I know about the picnic I was invited but unfortunately I cant attend as the date is clashing with my daughter's birthday and you know how big a deal a birthday celebration can be for us...so maybe next time inshallah!

Re: Pakistanis in Basel?

There is small pakistani community in and around Basel, not as vibrant and active as in the UK but they do organise events such Pakistan Independence day celebrations. PM me your details and I will let you know when the next get together is.
