Irfan Ali - words betray me. A peace activist who worked day and night to better the condition of his community in particular, and the human race in general. Scores of work he has done. I met him in Islamabad at a conference. His talk from TEDxRawalLake will keep buzzing me in my head for the rest of my life. He said ‘we are not stupid’ and it is time to stop taking things for granted in the name of ‘kion k yeh Pakistan hai’.
He is no more today. Died in todays blast in Quetta. I share this picture proudly today in remembrance of a soldier for peace, who had a microphone not a gun in his hand. i cant really tell about the sadness I feel. Like I lost someone from my family. May Allah bless his soul.
