Qalandar is an honorific title given to a saint who is at a very high level of spirituality. They are different from other saints and have very strong feelings of love for God’s creation. Qalandars, among the saints, are those persons who may enjoy freedom from the ties and bounds of time and space. Qalandars spread the message of love and humanity & have strong connection & RECALL with Lahore/Punjab/Pakistan.
With QALCO being the owner of Lahore Qalandars, it is for the first time for a Qatri Company to boost full ownership a of a Twenty20 team playing in a foreign tournament. There is so much in common here with the ‘Q’ standing for Qalandars, QALCO and Qatar. Our investment is in-line with the vision and message of our CEO H.E Sheikh Sultan Bin Jassim Al Thani who said “Qatar aims to be advanced society capable of sustaining its development and providing a high standard of living for its people”. Through our investment in PSL and franchise of Lahore Qalandars, we have taken this vision one step further to share our success and message of love beyond Qatar.
We choose the name “Lahore Qalandars” for the Lahore Team to highlight the sufi culture of lahore, Punjab and Pakistan which is all about love, tolerance and peace. ‘Qalandar’ is a true representation of what Pakistan stands for, a country for its people regrdless of their cast, ecthnicity or religious affiliations.
