Feeling that she was a part of history in the making, Tahmena is back from the UK with a renewed sense of the power of peoplejoining efforts

Prof. Tahmena Bokhari, social worker and activist who won Mrs Pakistan World 2010 journeyed to London, England to join several others on February 16th to encourage Muslims to reclaim their artistic and cultural heritage. Ms. Bokhari was invited by conference organisers - the British Muslims for Secular Democracy (bmsd) and by the British Council. The conference titled "Free Muslims: Autonomy and Creativity" challenged those who seek to close down the Muslim mind by claiming Islam forbids artistic expression, leisure and cultural activities.

This was aligned with Ms. Bokhari's overall message that we must work to develop positive and healthy communities around the world. Having a personal passion for the arts, as she hobbies as a photographer, fashion designer, painter and writer, she firmly believes that creative outlets are a necessary part of a healthy life.
