How about role of GSPFP on Communal Harmony?
In the field of Communal Harmony our central idea is to promote unity in various religious groups like Hindus Muslims etc.using great ancient rich cultural heritage that all of us share equally, our common ancestry & thousands of years of brotherhood & peaceful coexistence and thus iron out any minuscule differences, which are often due to misconceptions. We initiate & arrange dialogue to achieve this. Last year, we held a historic programme at Mumbai on 6 September 21 on Hindu Muslim unity. In the programme RSS Chief Dr. Mohan Bhagwat, Hon. Governor Kerala Arif Mohammed Khan, Lt. General (Rt.) Syed Ata Hasnain. Previously GOC, Srinagar based 15, Chinar Corps were the eminent speakers/panelists while more than 300 eminent Muslims from different walks of life, be they media persons, writers Chancellors, industrialists or Deoband Scholars, participated in the event. From Kashmir, about 35 eminent youth/students and 15 dignitaries attended the programme.
What was your focus this year since covid decreased a lot in India ?
Yes thankfully we got rid of Pandemic Coronavirus this year as it had hampered entire country even most of the world. However, abiding by all the rules, GSPFP had continued knitting a ground network by our outreach program basically focused on Kashmir.
We did lots of programmes, activities & events on ground, in all 10 districts of valley right uptown the hinterland. We interacted with students, teachers professors madarasa boards, Tajirs, Pithhuwalas, Shikara owners Sufi Shrines Intazamiyan committees, Gujjar/Bakkarwals/Paharis, heard & understood their problems & did whatever in our capacity to resolve them.
GSPFP did lots of activities to promote tourism in rest of India as well as abroad.
We did sports programmes and made a football league in this regard.
Women Empowerment was our focus and in this regard we provided platform to many women entrepreneurs of District Kupwara & downtown Srinagar.
We have also been working on ground to root out the menace of drug addiction & Narcoterrorism from Kashmir, including awareness campaigns, motivational speeches, Rallies etc.
We also on sacred eve of Diwali provided meaningful employment and resources to many Kashmiri households by taking the articles and crafts they produced as Diwali Gifts to different parts of country.
GSPFP also held several vocational education workshops and employment fairs to promote and also improve the job prospects of Kashmiri youth.
What about few sessions of G20 Summit in Kashmir?
We congratulate GOI for hoisting G-20 of 2023 in India & carried out a campaign in Kashmir to request a few sessions of G -20 summit in Kashmir so as to showcase Kashmir & Kashmiriyat to foreign delegates. This way we will be able to defeat enemy propaganda & attract foreign investment & tourists to Kashmir.
We promoted & organised cultural events including folk dance, music in schools, madarsas, orphanages and colleges so as to promote this talent plenty in Kashmir.
In coming times , what is the focus of GSPFP?
We are now mainly concentrating on Kashmir valley. We are working in entire country but in coming times Kashmir is going go be our central focus. The valley of Kashmir in a perfect place which needs Communal Harmony & restore it’s positive image . We have formed an organization of small traders , teachers in Kashmir to give right direction to resolutions of issues. We are also working to solve issues of Sufis in Kashmir.
We are also forming an association of Jammu and Kashmir media persons and help raise their vital issues with Union Information and Broadcasting Minister.

India is the country with largest percentage of youth. Youth is the future & offer great hope to our country as it is the young mind and heart that is going to make India towering global leader .Our youth have lot of potential and positive energy.
What is more you would like to share ?
Yes ,we are going to play a crucial part as GSPFP organization to ensure world known G20 sessions take place in Kashmir valley. This would be great boost to image of Kashmir and help it shun the negative tag of having violence and bloodshed. The tourism this year has already made many records and with some sessions of G20 happening in Kashmir it would give it big uplift .
Your message to people ?
As Hindus, Muslims , Sikhs , Christians etc we need to understand that we are one civilization since thousands of years with same DNA. We need to live with each other in spirit of love and harmony & ‘Nation First’ basis. The dirty game played by poisonous elements to break Hindu Muslim unity of Country or ruin Kashmir since past three decades stands exposed and people of Kashmir should also with full zeal contribute to national prosperity as we ‘Kashmir’ is the “Sheersh” of Bharatmata & are on path to become world leader or “Vishwa Guru” . We all need to live with love and make India a global leader .
