Dear IIK,

This ASSP in Kuwait is a part of an Amercian Society having members from India as well as from Pakistan, Kuwait , Egypt , Philippines and is NOT AN INDIAN SOCIETY and advertising their activities in the IIK Community Column dedicated for Indian Associations gives an impression to all IIK readers that it is also an Indian Community wing..

Please dont publish an Amercian Society news in Indian Community page to give more value and importance for hard working voluntary Indian associations.

ASSP news can be put in the main news page if such news are so important for the society.
