Former Rector of International Islamic University Islamabad, Prof. Fateh Mohammad Malik endorsed Dr. J Salik for the Nobel Peace Prize of this Year on his great efforts for peace.
Dr. J Salik is member of World Minorities Alliance, Convener Overseas Assembly Pakistan and Former Federal Minister and Nominee for Nobel Peace Prize. Prof. Fateh Mohammad Malik’s has second timed recommended J Salik after eighteen year.
In 1992 The Nobel Peace Committee wrote a letter to Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry that on the golden jubilee of Pakistan whom they would recommend for Nobel Peace Prize, who had worked for peace in Pakistan. Soon after that Foreign Ministry sent that letter to all provinces of Pakistan. 4 years later, in 1996 two short listed names were Dr. Abdul Sitaar Edhi and J Salik. J Salik tried to withdraw his name in the honor of Dr. Abdul Sitaar Edhi but Prime Minister at that moment Benazir Bhutto said him that he can only sit in cabinet but cannot speak in this regard as it’s the matter of Pakistan not about him, after suggestion from 14 ministers she decided that the work of Dr. Abdul Sitaar Edhi is for Pakistanis but J Salik worked globally for peace and interfaith harmony, and suggested J Salik for the Nobel Peace Prize of the year 1996 for the very first time on 10th April, 1996.
Prof. Fateh Mohammad Malik said in his recommendation that I am honored to nominate Mr. Julius Salik for this year’s award. He has spent more than three decades in struggle for peace, liberty and inter-faith harmony. Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan, herself a determined supporter for the rights of the demoralized humanity had rightly observed that “for numerous Pakistanis, Julius Salik has become the nation’s conscience. But his passion for peace exceeded national borders.”
