Invite for Pak-India Forum Seminar and Convention on the 29th Jan, 2pm @ Indian Social Inst, Delhi

Pakistan- India People's Forum for Peace and Democracy (PIPFPD)

(Delhi Chapter)


Dear friend,


Greetings to all the members and friends of the PIPFPD in this New Year 2011. On behalf of the state executive, we wish you a meaningful year ahead. It is important that organizationally too, we start the year on a positive and affirmative note.


As you know, among the limited number of groups working with the specific objective of building peace between both countries and pushing the governments to allow people-to-people interaction and relationship building, Forum holds the key as the most participatory, democratic organisation - consisting of individuals, organisations, trade unions, people’s movements, etc from both countries. Hence, it is important and imperative that despite all our organisational difficulties and problems of the past few years, we must carry on with our collective goal and mission. The recently held National Convention of the India Chapter of PIPFPD (held at Jammu in the first week of December 2010) also affirmed this position and has encouraged and requested all its members to reactivate ourselves towards our common mission. It has elected a new Committee and new organisational leadership with this in mind.


As the NCR state executive, we are taking this opportunity to organize the next State Convention of PIPFPD Delhi Chapter. The Delhi State convention of the Forum is planned for the 29th of January at Indian Social Institute, (Behind Saibaba Mandir), Lodi Road, New Delhi from 2.00pm. The state committee has also decided to hold a seminar on ‘Pakistan & India: the different colours of terror and intolerance’ along with the state convention. The Seminar will end at 4.30 pm and we expect to hold organisational business including elections in the next hour and half.


The next Joint Convention of the Forum is scheduled to be held in the month of April 2011 in Uttar Pradesh, India. While many chapters, including the UP chapter are gearing up for the same, Delhi cannot be left behind and we need to organizationally play an important role. We request all members and friends of Forum to take the activities forward.  Towards this, it is important that all of us come together to discuss and plan. Kindly also make sure that your membership is updated and that you take initiative in enrolling new members, especially young friends to the Forum’s fold.


Visit Forum’s improved website: The membership form and other details are available there. Kindly contact the Delhi chapter representatives for any clarification or if you have any suggestions regarding the convention and seminar.


Expecting your participation and future co-operation.

With regards,


T.K John (Chairperson),                             Balraj Kumar (Secretary),             Haris Kidwai (Treasurer)
