FINAL SUMMIT PUSH ON EVEREST!

NEWS FEED UPDATE:


We would like to take the opportunity to thank the entire Nation for appreciating and encouraging our “First Pakistani Gender Equality Mt.Everest Expedition 2013” success. Since our mission is not just to reach the highest mountain heights but the mission of our expeditions are deeper, for Gender Equality and empower women through adventure sports and encourage and promote outdoor sports, give awareness  and work on tourism. Before going on every expedition, we prepare detailed plans A, B and C, according to that we take the decision.
Our Mt.Everest Expedition on Eve of the 60th anniversary of Mt.Everest since its first ascent back in 1953, we had the great honor to represent our fatherland Pakistan on this international mega event, I privately  organised  this expedition, with the kind help of our New Zealand friends, Jennifer Kent, Joy Deerness and Arthur Smith - their financial support made it possible for us to represent Pakistan and its green flag with the first Pakistan girl attempting the tallest mountain of the world. I did this effort without any  support from Pakistan, since I love my country and have the passion to do something for my country within my capacity and my friends help made it possible that the first Pakistani woman, Samina Baig could hoist the Pakistani green flag on top of the world.

I take the opportunity and request every organization and media house to be patient for our detailed informations and please DON’T MAKE ANY STATEMENT WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION prior to our return. Please you must not give any wrong information. We will explain every thing in detail in our upcoming press conference when we arrive Pakistan soon. Every statement and information is our copyright, so please wait until we are back in Pakistan. Thank you for your patience. Thank you again for your appreciation. Pakistan ZindaBad!!! Mirza.
