NED69ers are spread all over the globe with relatives still in Karachi and other parts of Pakistan. Lately, Engr. Mohammad Mahtab Alam Khan, Gold Medalist in Electrical Engineering, came from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to visit his family on the occasion of Eid-Ul-Azha. Engr. Shareef Ur Rehman Malik took the initiative to arrange a get-together dinner at Usmania Restaurant on September 01, 2018 in Karachi. The attendees were as follows:
- Engr. Mohammad Mahtab Alam Khan - The Chief Guest
- Engr. Shareef Ur Rehman Malik
- Engr. Abul Hassan Jafri
- Engr. Tariq Said Bukhari
- Engr. Muhammad Hamid
- Engr. Rahmatullah Ganaai
- Engr. Iqbal Ahmed Khan
Few more were invited but due to some family commitments could not attend. It was a nice gathering and we met after a long time. The important discussion was about the “Golden Jubilee Celebration of NED69ers” scheduled to be held in Karachi early next year. Everybody who is planning to come from abroad was interested in the final date so that they can finalize their travel plan. Engr. Tariq Said Bukhari stated that few hours back he received an e-mail from Engr. Khalid Mushtaq regarding the final date of the celebration. The details of the mail read as follows:
Assalam u Alaikum WA Rehmatullah e WA Barakatuhu
Hope and pray you all and your families are doing well by the grace and blessings of Almighty Allah
Yes the silence has indeed been noticeable/deafening and for which we only have apologies to extend to everyone. There has however been no specific reason/s except for a bit of indecisiveness on our part for which we would once again like to record our regrets with you all. Hope and pray you all will condone this inadvertent lapse!
Adeel Lari you are correct, the NED 69ers Golden Jubilee Celebrations will In Sha Allah be held in Karachi from Friday the 15th February 2019 to Sunday the 17th February 2019.
Detailed programme covering the sequence of events and logistics will be intimated ASAP after necessary coordination, etc.
You all may like to evolve and firm up your travel plans accordingly In Sha Allah.
Take care and stay blessed you al 69ers!!!
Salams and best regards

Finally the suspense is over and now all NED69ers can start getting their seats reserved for the said dates. We had a great dinner it was real delicious and enjoyed by all the attendees. It was decided by all that NED69ers in Karachi will meet on the first Saturday on lunch of every month. The venue and other details will be communicated to all who wanted to attend.
Engr. Abul Hassan Jafri is trying to get the latest cell number from Engr. Mahtab Khan, Engr. Mohammad Mahtab Khan, Engr. Shareef Ur Rehman Malik.

We appreciated Engr. Mahtab Khan to inform about his arrival in Karachi and we all met. In future if any of NED69ers plan to visit Karachi he should do it in such a way that he can be a part of our monthly gathering of first Saturday of every month. Do contact any of the members you are in contact with. Finally we all wished Mahtab to have a safe journey back to Saudi Arabia and to always remember his all friends of NED69ers in his prayers whenever he visits the Holy Cities Makkah and Madina.
We missed Engr. Muhammad Hamid in our group picture as he left early to attend a family party.
