Second Indo-Pak Students Peace Camp in Chandigarh from Tuesday

The second Indo-Pak Students Peace Camp will begin in Chandigarh tomorrow to promote peace and people-to-people contact, especially between the youth of the two countries.

Lahore, Oct 1 : The second Indo-Pak Students Peace Camp will begin in Chandigarh tomorrow to promote peace and people-to-people contact, especially between the youth of the two countries.

Twelve Pakistani students are leaving for Chandigarh today via Wagah to participate in the camp.

Mubashir Ahmed, the Centre for Youth Development and Activities (CYDA) coordinator, said that the CYDA, in collaboration with several Indian organisations, was working to develop relations between India and Pakistan.

"We exchanged a similar delegation in 2006. The camp's organisers will also celebrate October 2, which is Mahatma Gandhi birthday, as India-Pakistan Peace Day," the Daily Times quoted Ahmed as saying.

At the camp, students will discuss various themes, including peace and harmony, nature and non-violence, environment and poverty.

Ahmed said that a mock UN Assembly representing 20 countries would also be organised, which would hold discussions on the theme 'Make Poverty History'.

Hira Rehman, a Pakistani student who was part of the previous delegation also, said she was excited about her trip to India, as it would help the students of both countries to understand each other's history and culture.

She said, "This is the time for us to forget our disputes and work together for better relations."
