Pamir Times: Biking for Peace


January 30, 2009 / By Talib Shah & Faqeer Ullah

Mansehra, January 29 – Muzaffar Bhai Jan, 28, a member of Ismaili Boys Scouts Unit, Ghulkin – Gojal, is cycling his way to Islamabad, on what he calls “Bike for Peace” campaign. It is a historical journey because he, reportedly, is the first native of Gilgit – Baltistan to take this arduous and difficult task for a noble cause.

Muzzafar reached Abbotabad today, having left Gilgit city on 25th January, on his way to Islamabad. “Bike for Peace is an effort to let the world know that people of Gilgit – Baltistan and Pakistan are peaceful and friendly”, he said.

It is pertinent to note here that Muzaffar is in the second phase of his ‘Bike for Peace” campaign, having completed the first phase earlier last year, traveling from Gojal to Gilgit, a distance of 145 kilometers.

Large number of student migrants of Gilgit – Baltistan gathered in Mansehra to appreciate the cause and welcome Muzaffar. The Karakuram Students Organization is also expected to host a welcome party for the young biker.

  1. nice intention. well done and keep loving peace. it is a noble cause. it really reminded me the quote that “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a closed room with a mosquito”. it is really an encouraging initiative.
    well done and best of luck for ur future peace initiatives.
