Shahid did express few words about his ambition and award saying;

The only thing important to me was Pakistan’s name being announced on an International stage. Allah has been the kindest to me and my family. The actual path starts now. May Allah guide me to give my best to Pakistan and serve best where ever and whenever I will be called to. Thank you, everyone, for your love and support
