Reclaiming Pakistan: A Conversation with Jibran Nasir

 Friday, April 24

 Time: 5:45 pm 

 Location: Hamilton Hall, Room  602, Columbia University

In the aftermath of the December 16, 2014 Peshawar Army Public School attack, Jibran has been leading the citizen's movement against terrorism, organizing campaigns in an effort to pressure the Government of Pakistan to begin a crack down on banned militant outfits. As a result Jibran has faced an arrest and has been threatened by the Taliban. Moreover other banned militant outfits have falsely accused him of blasphemy and have even tried to implicate him in fabricated criminal cases as unsuccessful attempts to intimidate and silence him.
