He commended the Pakistani hockey team for their outstanding performance in the Azlan Shah Hockey Tournament held in Malaysia, where the team remained unbeaten throughout the competition.

The announcement of the Pakistani hockey team’s presence elicited an enthusiastic response from the guests. The youth and children, in particular, flocked to the players, eagerly taking selfies with them. This excitement was heightened by the fact that Pakistan had reached the final of the Azlan Shah Hockey Cup for the first time in 13 years.
