OATH FOR PEACE CAMPAIGN

In order to respond to the growing trends of religious extreimims and intolerance in the Pakistani society CHRE initiated OATH FOR PEACE CAMPAIGN to reach to the communities, especially the students and teachers in the educational institutions to get their pledges against religious extremism and intolerance and in favour of respect of all human beings and rspeect of religious and all types of diversity in the society

Paricipants of PCPT, CHRE Alumni and member organizations are visiting different places especially educational institutions to take Peace oath and get it signed by the students and teachers who are the main focus because most of the militant outfits brainwash and recruit young students for their terrorist acts, therefore it is important to cut their supply line and this is why CHRE has opted to reach to the educational institutions

Jalal Sherazi has reached to approximately 2500 students in different schools and colleges of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa where the students and teachers pledged for peace and tolerance.
