- Pluralism and Coexistence
The KKF team organised a gathering on “Pluralism and Coexistence” for the youth and elders of FATA. People from Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Sikh communities participated in this gathering. The guest speaker for the event was Dervaish Afridi, Fulbright Scholar and PhD Scholar. Around 30 people from diverse occupations participated in this event. This activity was the first of its kind for the people of FATA where people from different communities gathered, ate on one table, shared their ideas and planned for more inclusive engagements. It was because of this program that one of our media personnel developed contacts with the representatives of minorities and invited them to advocate on a radio program on Minority day August 11 and August 14.
