Podcast: Pakistani Immigrants Seek to Rebuild Relationship Between Countries
Wednesday, December 21, 2011
Pakistani immigrants are keenly aware of the dangers posed by the latest crisis in U.S.-Pakistan relations. Ever since the November 26 NATO airstrike that killed at least 25 Pakistani soldiers near the border with Afghanistan, the relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan has been on a downward spiral.
In this Feet in Two Worlds podcast, Mohsin Zaheer, the founder and editor of The Pakistani Newspaper and the editor of Sada-e-Pakistan, an Urdu-language weekly in New York, talks about the shock waves rolling through the Pakistani American community. In a conversation with Fi2W Executive Producer John Rudolph, Mohsin discusses the concerns of Pakistani immigrants as well as their desire to help rebuild the battered relationship between the two nations.
