I was born in Poonch (Kashmir) and now I live in Norway. I oppose war and violence and am a firm believer in the peaceful co-existence of all nations and peoples.

I also believe that all conscious members of society have a moral duty to stand for and further the cause of peace and human rights throughout the world.
