Alaap publications reflect its efforts to promote arts and cultural diversity in the society of Pakistan under heavy onslaught of religious extremism. The activities were done in the most difficult years (2006-2011) when different areas of Pakistan, including the main cities such as Islamabad,Lahore,Karachi, Quetta and Peshawar, experienced deadly attacks by the extremists. The Alaap was a concerted response by the peace loving artists against the systemic attacks on the cultural expressions. The activities of Alaap included music festivals, conferences, poetry sessions, peace rallies, painting exhibitions, interfaith harmony programs, discussions and seminars.
