For Malala Yousafzai


at fourteen she has

so much to live for

but surely not

a bullet in her head


to show the cowardice

of those who can not

stand up and face

a girl of fourteen


because her stand

in their face

makes them afraid

of an idea that she represents


and which may

cast doubts among

the professed guardians

of a religion to which…

please remember to return the greeting, if you do not offer these first, when you meet anyone in your daily life. and recollect how even passerby's in the street or in the mall aisles…

Self-identified former “extremists” and survivors have formed a social network aimed at helping young people avoid political violence and gang culture. The Against Violent Extremism network believes that radicalization is less of a religious and ideological issue…

Am honoured sir. I feel if many such "single -minded" anti terrorist activists get together, we could make a difference :). I have a lots to learn from you too.

Dear Tahir,

The attainment of Peace seems to some a fleeting dream...but I believe very much in  the beauty the exists in humanity...if we are given a chance to dialogue with each other. I always say the more we can discuss our differences, we will discover our similarities. Our basic 'humanity' or as you call it 'one' will come through.

Peace & Blessings!
