Pak man adds gold, gems to Indian flag to promote peace
Islamabad: A Pakistani goldsmith has fashioned a collection of flags of different countries, including India, with a combination of gold and gems to send out a message of peace to the world community.
Kalim Sheheryar displayed his collection of unique flags at the National Press Club here on Monday.
"I want to create a soft image of my country and give a message of peace, love and harmony to other countries," he told reporters.
He said the painstaking project of making the flags of Pakistan, India, China, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Japan, Britain, the US and Canada took almost a decade.
Sheheryar said he was hopeful his work will promote mutual respect among different faiths and countries.
He said he planned to organise an exhibition of the flags next month.
He further said he planned to sell the flags to raise funds for setting up a hospital.
"I want to establish a hospital in Rawalpindi and money coming from the sale of these works will be spent on that project," he said.
