Pakistan-India Peace: People’s Need vs State Interest

A talk by Karamat Ali

Poetry: Irfan Malik

September 20, 2.00 pm

Room 120

Surrey Centre Library, 10350 University Drive, Surrey, BC

Since their creation as independent states in 1947 india and Pakistan have fought three wars and taken the subcontinent to the brink of nuclear holocaust. The two militarized states face each other across an uneasy “line of control” in divided Kashmir, frequently bringing the miseries of war to those living along the border. People of the subcontinent need peace, yet peace remains elusive. How can the roadblocks to peace be overcome?

Karamat Ali is a founder and Executive Director of Pakistan Institute for Labour Research and Education (PILER). He is a life-long activist for peace on the subcontinent and the recipient of the first Dadi Nrmala Deshpande Peace and Justice Award in 2013.
