About

Tufahije is a National Dessert of Bosnia and Herzegovena for Eid and other occations. I have some emmotional attachement with this country. When I was a student of Masters degree the coflict of Bosnia happened. Me and My friends (Ikram Bhai, Tariq Zafar, Rab Nawaz) were attending many programes related to Bosnian war to collect funds and donations for Bosnian Muslims brothers. I remember a poetry programe at Taj Mahal Hotel, chief guest was the Her Majesty the wife of First Presient of Bosnian (Alija Izetbegović (Bosnian, in Cyrillic: Алија Изетбеговић; ) for Bosnian people arranged by Pasban. I also attended a photogrphy exhibition related to Bonian War at Urdu University Karachi ground arranged by Islami Jamiat Talba Pakistan.
