Auction of Bacha Khan Portrait
Auction of the portrait
Bacha Khan, as the world know him need no extravagant intro and it will suffice that he was the man who matched his mountains, as narrated in his book by Mr. Aiknat Aswaran. Non-violence is philosophy to me but code of life for Bach Khan, in these words Mr. Gandhi of India had described this man. A lot therefore has been said about him and still a lot remains to be said and explored about him. I as millions around the globe am greatly inspired of this legend and as a painter could not hold my passion to draw his portrait. Every stroke while painting it brought me closer and closer to the era of ruthlessness and hatred when this man survived with a smile on his face enchanting amongst his followers for peace and non-violence. My dear friends, fans and fellow inhabitants of this world who wants peace and non-violence to prevail in todayˇ¦s\\\\\\\' uncertain and agonizing world, I have this announcement to make today that I have decided to donate this priceless master piece of great Bacha Khan to Pukhtoon Thinkers Forum (an organization of friends striving for peace and harmony with agenda of non-violence). We at Thinkers\\\\\\\' Forum are therefore presenting it for an international open auction through this forum. The proceeds of this painting shall be spent on peace efforts through Art, Literature and promotion of long forgotten Cultural values and ethics especially in the city of lights i.e. Karachi - Pakistan.
