Campaign to declare 16 December as National Day against Extremism and Terrorism

In December 2015, Rwadari Tehreek launched a countrywide campaign to demand from the Government to declare 16 December as a National Day against Extremism and Terrorism to remember all those who lost their lives at APS Peshawar on 16 December 2014 and also to reiterate as a national our commitment to fight extremism and terrorism.

In this regard a campaign was generated through social, media, SMS service, letter writing to the Prime Minister, Chief Ministers, Governors and other relevant government functionaries.
Members of Rwadari Tehreek organized Protest Rallies, Candle Vigils and other activities on December 14, 15, 16, and 17th 2015.
