In this talk, Dr. Hussain raised awareness about the magnificent Buddhist Stupa once located in his native city of Peshawar, Pakistan, a building that was, by “all measures, the 8th wonder of the ancient world.” He argued for acquiring the excavated land of the Stupa and declaring it a World Heritage Site.
