    Pakistan is a peaceful country but unfortunately it has always been blamed to support terrorism and spread hatred in the World thus victimized by the Globe.

    Many tragic events have led towards such an image of Pakistan destabilizing the beautiful nation and as a responsible citizen of this beautiful homeland we must be worried because the World is fallacious regarding Pakistan. They are showing a flawed image of Pakistan and it is totally unendurable. To reveal the true face of Pakistan as a peaceful nation we must take the initial step by depicting the reality through Articles, Calligraphies and sketches etc.

    For the triumphant of this campaign, the citizens and especially new generation must provide with their precious time and efforts to manifest the reality of the Peaceful Nation to the World. We must be delighted to recall our role models like Malala Yousafzai, Arifa Karim, Babar Iqbal and many others who played crucial roles enlightening the true face of Pakistan to the whole World. In the near future if more of such faces arouse then it will be possible to bring the revolutionary change which the country is dreaming of.

    In the eyes of the World Pakistan is the homeland for the terrorists, hence many tourists feel insecure to visit Pakistan and thus we are deprived form the tourism industry in spite of having paradise places. We can’t tolerate this misrepresentation of our beautiful Nation by the World. The reality is that we inhabit pacifist people. We believe in the basic principles of humanity like brotherhood, equality, peace and harmony. We knew to love others and give then the due respect. We have soft hearts with doors always open for our guests. We aren’t those who spread hatred or those who offend others. We only know to enjoy the blessings bestowed to us and to share our happiness with our brothers and sisters throughout the globe.

It is scheduled from 7th to 9th June during which five matches are played between the teams of Gilgit and Chitral.
