December 15 and 17, 2009 – National College of Arts Lahore

by

Met with the faculty with the support and lead of Dr. Nadeem Omar Tarar, and talked to the students about surviving terrorism, the death of a NCA graduate in the Moon Market Lahore blast (07-12-09) added significance to this meeting.

Dr. Nadeem Omar Tarar of the NCA, is leading this activity, and has a blog going at http://victimsofterrorismpk.blogspot.com/ to document terrorist activities and related information from the Pakistan point.

We plan to expand the activities to involve students in poster competition, slogan competition, and such activities.

I have been approached by students of the NCA who are willing to work on this with lots of zeal, and we will work together with Nadeem to create a core group who will reach out to the victims of terrorism, and in case of any future (God forbid) incident to try to be present to help in the evacuation, an/or assistance in locating victims on site, or in the hospitals.

Appreciate the efforts, and hope we will be able to make the NCA activity as a model or other institutions to follow.

An outcome of this talk was a meeting with a faculty member of FCC University Lahore, to work on a similar activity at the FCCU in January after the winter vacations.
