KARACHI: Lyari is the mother of Karachi, and it is the duty of the children to rescue their mother from violence by promoting peace.

He was the chief guest at the Lyari Peace Debate Competition 2014, organised by the Rose Educational Society with the support of the Karachi Youth Initiative (KYI). The chief guest commended the talent of Lyari students who participated in the competition from 25 different government and private schools of the area, and emphasised the importance of peace in their speeches.

Fifty students took part in the competition, and 12 of them made it to the final round.
