Imtiaz Ali was born in the Charsadda District in Pakistan. His district was the target of numerous terrorist attacks targeting especially educational sites such as the Bacha Khan University Charsadda.
To overcome these challenges, Ali founded his NGO The Pakistan Hope Society which focuses on establishing peace committees at local levels for conflict resolution.
Ali works to engage young people to shift the current situation and bring people together, not only within the community but also beyond the national borders. To facilitate dialogue and greater friendship between Pakistan and Afghanistan, Ali has established a youth parliamentarian exchange program laying the ground for peacebuilding.
