LAHORE, PUNJAB, PAKISTAN, December 20, 2014 /PressReleasePing/ - An institutional
resolution has been unanimously passed by Pakistani academics, working in different
institutions around the globe, to set forth a "United Peace Constituency" and a "Conjoint
Academic Commission" to ponder scholastic contemplations on the subject-matter of "peace
and counter-terrorism", in the wake of Peshawar school's annihilation menace. The
commission declares the deadliest incident a "planetary tragedy" and proclaims the year2015, the "SAARC Academia's Year of Peace".

In the wake of the deadliest brutal terror attack at Peshawar school, a conjoint academic
commission has been formed up by Pakistani academicians working in different institutions
around the globe. An institutional resolution has been unanimously passed by the peaceconflict experts and other research-oriented academics from diverse disciplines, to set forth a
'United Peace Constituency' and a 'Conjoint Academic Commission' to ponder scholastic
contemplations on the issue under focus;- 'counter-terrorism' in the academic perspectives.
The conjoint commission's chair Dr. Bareera N. B., and co-chair Professor Emeritus Dr. Zaki
have declared the deadliest incident a 'planetary tragedy'. By an unconfronted concurrenceaccord of SAARC region academicians, associated with peace related and socio-ethnic
studies, the year-2015 has been proclaimed as the 'SAARC Academia Year of Peace' by the
same resolution.
The commission designated by the constituency, would dedicatedly envisage to draw
enticement-proposition outlines concerning the challenging assignment and task on hands. A
nine members academics committee would overview the propositional outcomes of National
Security Plan of Action for its pertinence, in order to make germane recommendations
thereupon.

"Pakistani academics around the globe hold fast the resolute determination and reiterate their
firm resolve to address the terroristic-menace faced by Pakistan today", asserted the
commission's chair Dr. Bareera N. B., who is a post-doc anthropological academic in peaceconflict studies, and an external assessor of peace and counter-terrorism studies at NPA.
The recent terminal incident has left Pakistan and the Pakistanis as a menace-prone nation
and peril- susceptible territory, and by now we have no choice other than to make deep
deliberations on the critical issue, not only from the operational vantages, but necessarily and
principally, from the academic perspective too", maintains Dr. Bareera N.B.
The present scenario requires a grand reconciliation at all levels. The integrated cognoscenti
connoisseurs of nation; the military establishment, the government, the civil society, the
academia, that judiciary, all have to add into, what they are capable to. The academia holds in
its capacity, an integral part and a pivoting role to play, since the literati-cognoscente remains
a mainstay and the core-constituent, not within the means to be avoidable in any collective
enterprise of national interest, establishes the commission.
The prevailing terrorism is a complete mindset rather than certain occurrences, and
henceforth needs to be addressed in a totalistic perspective rather than the segmented
operational approach, pronounce the academics.
