Indian children send message of peace in the world’s biggest letter

Daily Times - 25 March 2006
Lahore, Pakistan
by Mohammed Rizwan

Tens of thousands of Indian schoolchildren sent a message of love and peace to Pakistani children in a letter the size of a football pitch.

The world’s biggest letter along with tons of other normal sized letters packed in a container and seven suitcases arrived in Pakistan through the Wagah check post on Friday.

More than 100,000 volunteers of an Indo-Pak Non Government Organisation (NGO) ‘Friends Without Borders’ worked on this gigantic letter for 10 weeks. The letter campaign traveled across India for three months, stopping at major cities like Bangalore, Bombay, Kolkatta, Delhi and Ahmedabad.

The letter says, “Lets join hearts for friendship. Together we can make a better world. Signed; Children of India,” which will be unveiled on the cricket pitch of Qaddafi Stadium in Lahore on April 4. “Many people in India asked me why the children of India had to write a letter first and I said that Indian children won the toss and elected to bat, Pakistan would reply,” said Mark Jacobs, chief volunteers of the campaign who crossed into Pakistan along with 10 NGO members. “It’s just the beginning. Now it’s up to the Pakistani children to respond to the gesture which will boost the peace process,” said Mark.

Amir Rafiq, president of ‘Friends Without Borders’ in Pakistan, said that the letter would be handed over to the representatives of Pakistani schoolchildren at Gaddafi Stadium on April 4, adding that a reply campaign would be initiated in Pakistani schools to continue the process. Rafiq said that the NGO would launch a publicity campaign through the local media to get children registered for the reply campaign.
