MINGORA, 7 September: A Swat-based welfare organization—Peace for New Generation—organized a walk on Monday in Saidu Shareef, urging the United Nations to play its role in ending wars.

Participants of the walk, comprised of students and people from different walks of life, were holding placards inscribed with the anti-war slogans. Addressing the walk, Peace for New Generation head Neelam Chattan said that wars have extremely harmful effects on human beings. United Nations should play its role to put an end on armed conflicts across the world, she said.

“We [the people of once militancy-plagued Swat] have witnessed the destruction of war and we don’t want others to be victims of the devastation of armed conflicts. We demand of the United Nations to help end armed conflicts.”
