The Second Floor: Last year, PeaceNiche curated the Social Media Mela held in July 2012. One of the sessions was "Connecting with the World In Their Own Voice: Bridging the Mainstream Media Gap". Irfan Khudi Ali joined us as a panellist to discuss the power and potential of social media to combat human rights abuse and persecution. He was brave, outspoken, and fearless. We have just learned that Irfan has been killed in the Quetta bomb blasts. RIP, dear Irfan. It was an honour to have met you.
