A Pakistani Christian activist last week received award and acknowledgements for his efforts to promote interfaith harmony in the country. Farah Memorial Foundation (FMF) in association with Christian Students' Fellowship Peshawar (CSFP) recognized the work of Yasir Bhatti, who spreads religious harmony in the Muslim-dominated country.

Along with Bhatti, Christian students from across the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa capital were also awarded and honored for securing excellent results in annual exams conducted under Peshawar Board, according to Christians in Pakistan.

The award distributing ceremony, "Students' Motivational Awards Ceremony 2017" was based upon the Biblical verse where the Scripture from first Thessalonians chapter five verses 11 says, "Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do."

Bhatti, affiliated with the Diocese of Peshawar, holds an important position at provincial Youth Assembly. He also holds services at the CSFP. He also serves as the church as Assistant Secretary to Property Office at Diocese of Peshawar. Formerly, he interceded for Minorities Affairs at the Provincial Youth Assembly.

Javed, director of FMF, expressed his sincere compliments to those who had received awards. He said that motto of his foundation is "To see Christian Community in Pakistan uplifted through educating the young people."
