Pakistani nation believes in a peaceful world run in solidarity with other nations. Recently, the media of Pakistan has played a very important role in promoting regional and international cooperation to spread the message of harmony and contribute to building a world at peace. However, more steps need to be taken by the media at regular intervals to keep this effort consistent. Engaging people from all walks of life at the grassroots would be a good idea too. Campaigning for awareness on issues such as peace, human rights, democracy and justice would help minimize the toxic effects of extremism in our country and would bring about the change we need to move forward. The tide is turning, change happening. The process just needs to be quickened a little more. -ERAJ DANISH, Islamabad, December 2.
