The National Book Foundation (NBF)’s new ambassador aims to change the way world views Pakistan by promoting peace through literature. 

In an interview with The Express Tribune, NBF ambassador Muhammad Asif Noor said that over the years, literature being produced from and about Pakistan has inclined towards aggressive content on the war on terror, and strategies and policies related to extremism.

“Such content has played a major role in reshaping the international perspective of Pakistan. Such books support the cost and make grand sales for writers, while literature on peace and harmony is sidelined,” He added.
