Hello Sohail Mahmood,

yes indeed what a good Plattform for better international relations. I am very interested in pacifism in Pakistan and in the islamic culture. Since 2011 we have a peace nobel laureate from Yemen. I think Mohamed Mustafa ElBaradei did in Vienna - were I was born - also a good job as Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). What is your knowledge on pacifism. Can you give me so hints (good resources in the web or publications on pacifists in the arabic an farsi, ... speaking countries?
