Our story starts way back,
Salook, inaugurated on June 19, 2014, as a cultural heritage resource, research and training centre, undertakes activities to preserve and promote the folk heritage and culture in Pakistan. Salook envisions a Pakistan where people live, grow and prosper like a single family regardless of their linguistic, racial, ethnic and religious identity by engaging leaders of folk heritage to work on education, peace, human rights, interfaith & intra-faith harmony, gender equality, cultural diversity, conflict resolution, health and livelihood. Our objectives are: spreading saints’ message of non-violence, peace and tolerance, promoting cultural heritage, building and reviving culture of peace, creating (spiritual) awareness among people and uplifting them through sufi teachings of universal brotherhood.
