What is Aman ki Asha, who initiated it, and why?
Aman ki Asha is a campaign for peace between India and Pakistan, jointly initiated by the Jang Group of Pakistan and The Times of India Group.
The words Aman ki Asha mean 'hope for peace'. Aman is an Urdu word, meaning peace. Asha is a Hindi word, meaning hope. The combination of the two languages reflects the collaborative spirit of this initiative.
The objective of Aman ki Asha is to create an enabling environment to facilitate dialogue between the governments, encourage people-to-people contacts and thus contribute to bringing about peace between India and Pakistan.
The two leading media groups of the two countries decided to launch this initiative
How does Aman ki Asha intend to achieve its objectives?
Aman ki Asha seeks to facilitate the quest for peace through the following means:
An honest and exhaustive debate on all contentious issues between the two countries, such as Kashmir, water, terrorism, Siachin, Sir Creek etc
Actively encourage and facilitate people-to-people contacts across the broadest possible spectrum.
Initiate seminars, official and unofficial contacts, dialogues and meetings between Indians and Pakistanis, with a view to creating an enabling environment for both governments to dialogue on all outstanding issues.
As the largest media groups in India and Pakistan respectively, Times of India Group and the Jang Group commit to using their print and electronic media to aggressively promote the benefits of peace in terms of economic development, uniting families, tourism, developing trade, and removing the obstacles to peace. We invite all other media to support this initiative in any and every way they can.
How and when was the idea conceived?
The idea was conceived by the Jang Group, which approached the Times of India Group as a natural ally. Both media groups agreed that the source of many of the problems confronting both countries lay in the longstanding disputes with each other. They conceived the Aman ki Asha peace initiative in early 2008 as a vehicle for facilitating the resolution of these disputes.
The initiative was launched on Jan 1, 2010.
Are any foreign governments or agencies involved in Aman ki Asha?
No. This is a Jang Group and Times of India Group initiative. These are the only two organisations running the Aman ki Asha initiative. In line with the Aman ki Asha philosophy we have taken on board all relevant stakeholders including governments, political parties and civil society.
How is Aman ki Asha funded?
So far, all expenses have been borne by the Jang Group and the Times of India Group. Some events may be sponsored by commercial organisations.
