He said that politicians, armed forces and media can become a tool in the dialogue to be launched by the intellectuals, but it is basically the domain of the academia to launch the dialogue. He said that intellectual movements all over the world are launched from academic institutions and it is high time that our writers and intellectuals start a new thought process to cleanse the society from the monster of terrorism and extremism.
