From The Editor’s Desk

It is my pleasure to introduce the September edition as the Chief Editor of Glob- al Affairs. My team and I have worked tirelessly to put together this edition for our esteemed audience. We hope you find it worthy of your time and attention.

It is a proud moment as Cutting Edge Group has been successful in hosting the biggest sports event in the history of Kashmir: the Kashmir Premier League (KPL). This was the first event of its kind in Kashmir and to say that it was a roaring success would not be an over-exaggeration. Pakistanis from all over the country and especially Kashmiris participated zealously as the event was graced by cricket superstars like Shahid Afridi as the Brand Ambassador, Shoaib Akhtar as Peace Ambassador, and Waseem Akram as the Vice President of the league. We also saw the young talent of Kashmir making a remarkable debut alongside celebrated cricket heroes like Muhammad Hafiz and Herschelle Gibbs.

KPL served as the first platform of its kind that opened Kashmir to the rest of the world and advocated for the message of peace and harmony. The event took place at the Muzaffarabad Cricket Stadium where para-gliders came down from 10000 feet with the stadium roaring with the KPL anthem and the cheers of the crowd. You will many vibrant details of the event in this edition.
Our team has also shed some light on how Pakistanis celebrated the 75th Independence Day. Moreover, our writers have penned down important events unfolding around the globe like the situation unraveling in Afghanistan with US withdrawal, Taliban takeover, and its implications for the rest of the world. We also congratulate the leadership of Pakistan and Russia on solidifying their partnership over the gas pipeline project. The opinion section is also enriched with interesting and riveting stories on a number of pressing issues. My team and I appreciate the trust and vote of confidence that our readers have shown us over the years and are looking forward to your feedback as always. I hope you have as much fun reading this edition as we had to compile it.
