Javed Jabbar (Former Information Minister): Despite the social media and television, Radio Pakistan played a vital role in providing a platform to the artists to expose their abilities. There is a long list of great artists in the country who started from Radio Pakistan, which covers all areas of the country. Radio Pakistan is the best medium of information even in the far flung areas. Radio Pakistan has a long list of luminaries: singers, actors and people who have performed or are performing in different capacities.
Syed Anwar Mehmood (Former Secretary Information & Director General Radio Pakistan): It is good news that Pakistan is 75 years old now and so is Radio Pakistan. Both Pakistan and Radio Pakistan were born together and are going together. The award ceremony will be the recognition of those voices who have done well through this platform. I am very happy that Radio Pakistan is going to organize a colourful Diamond Jubilee Awards 2022 ceremony on this important occasion.
