  1. Very heartly Congratulations.
    A long-time "self-rifugee" from Pakistan in Europe wishes you very heartly: Good luck in your new position. I hope you never to get trapped in the so-called "Muslim" or "Pakistani" identity. The real identity for people of your (and my) type is: cultural diversity. Evidently you know it better than I would ever do.
