Higgs boson is the corner stone of our current understanding of how the forces of nature work. In this talk, aimed at general science audience, the main ideas behind the Higgs particle and its central role in Prof. Salam's underpinning of the whole particle physics via the standard model, will be described. The Higgs particle was one of the last predictions of Salam's theory, apart from the W's and the Z, and was found about three years ago at CERN. The prediction regarding the existence of Higgs boson relied on coming together of a host of ideas at the basis of physics and therefore its discovery has been hailed as one of the greatest triumphs of theoretical physics and is a testament to greatness of Salam's ideas in Physics.

The 1992-1995 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina was a defining moment of the post-Cold War order, pivotal to the development of UN peacekeeping and the project of European integration. Less well-explored is Bosnia's significance throughout the Muslim world and the numerous solidarity efforts that emerged during the war. As a predominantly Muslim country in Europe, Bosnia presented opportunities and dilemmas for universalist projects in both the West and the Muslim world. This lecture traces two of the most important attempts to embody Islamic solidarity with Bosnia: foreign volunteers in the Bosnian army ("mujahidin") and military units seconded to the United Nations peacekeeping forces by predominantly Muslim countries, including Pakistan.
