The creator of these groups, Farhan Wilayat Butt, is appointed IFLAC Peace Ambassador for Pakistan. In addition to these groups, he also runs a Facebook group called Pakistan Peacekeeping Mission.
These additions mean that we are now able to spread the IFLAC message of peace to a new member base of approx. 25,000!
Although the IFLAC Writers Club is listed in the “Young Writers” category, the group consists of writers, poets and thinkers from all walks of life and of all ages. “It is high time that Peace Writers and Poets all over the world join hands together to create through their words, writings, communication and Bridges of Peace Culture – a world beyond war, terror and violence,” IFLAC Founder and President Ada Aharoni says.
Farhan Wilayat Butt lives in Lahore, Pakistan. A banker by profession, he combines his day job as Senior Relationship Manager in a commercial bank with peace, social and interfaith work, including writing, peace-tours and photography. He writes short stories and research articles for various Pakistani and Indian magazines in Urdu and English.
He recently interviewed Dr. Mimpal Singh, the first Sikh MBBS Doctor in Pakistan. The interview is published on The Sikh Foundation website.
You are welcome to join the groups:
