Tehelka to host special summit on Indo-Pak relations in London on June 26-27

India and Pakistan – two nations that were once one – are two of the keenly observed nations today. India, as the world’s largest democracy; and Pakistan, as the hotbed of militant activities. Their combined future is of crucial interest to all the major nations – particularly Britain and the US, which have large multi-ethnic and multi-religious populations.

In a bid to initiate a constructive dialogue between the two nations, Tehelka is hosting a high-profile and timely summit titled ‘India & Pakistan: Designing a New Future’ in London on June 26-27.

Over two days, in an atmosphere committed to openness and frank discussion, a stellar list of political, cultural and opinion leaders from India, Pakistan and the UK will debate on several crucial and contentious issues, such as: Kashmir, terror, neo-fundamentalism, religious identities, youth, Diaspora, western mediation, cinema, literature and soft power.

It is a potent moment for new conversations about and between the two countries. What direction should such conversations take? What global impact will they have?

Addressing the summit will be 35 top-notch leaders ranging from politics to cinema – Imran Khan, Aamir Khan, Farooq Abdullah, Fatima Bhutto, Sherry Rehman, Jaswant Singh, Mohammed Hanif, Lt. General (Retd) Asad Durrani, Kamila Shamsie, Karan Johar, Ziauddin Sardar, and Tariq Ali, among others.

There would also be vision statements by Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif – key players in the coalition power in Pakistan.

The topics of discussion will include ‘Kashmir: Melting the snows, reinventing the imagination’, ‘Inherited Poisons: Can the young defang them?’, ‘The Western factor: Spoiler or benign interference?’, etc.
