Hundreds Attend Prayer Services for the Late Vice-President Marshal Fahim

March 15, 2014


Hundreds of cross-section community members participated Saturday, 15th of March, in the prayer services for Marshal Mohammad Qasim Fahim, First Vice-President of Afghanistan.

Speaking to the congregation, SPA Sharif Ghalib called Marshal Fahim’s untimely passing a great loss for Afghanistan. He said, “Marshal Fahim’s service to his nation spanned near 3 decades. From the nation’s struggle against invasion, the historic national resistance of the people of Afghanistan against international terrorism and Talibanism to the post-Bonn era and Afghanistan’s embarkation upon the peace process, Marshal Fahim chose to cling to his sincere commitment for being on the side of his nation. Believing in peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan, late Marsh Fahim worked tirelessly to underpin democratic governance through building democratic institutions as well as the reconstruction process”, he observed.

Held in the Umma Nabawia Principle Mosque in Toronto west, the event was organized jointly by the Embassy of Afghanistan and the Consulate General of Afghanistan in collaboration with the Afghanistan Community of Toronto.
