The media today is full of glamour massala and ridiculous shows that do nothing to enlighten (or lighten up) the common man. Instead of reporting the news about celebrities, the broadcasters need to show the war in Waziristan in more telling detail. Our main source of information about the war in the Waziristan area is the television from which we can get direct information. But television is teaching the young people to be frivolous lifestyle junkies that are extreme in their ways and hate other Pakistanis that are unlike them. We need to be educated thoroughly about this war and once the majority is aware of the facts, we will be able to fight it with greater conviction and energy. This would also help expose the reality of Taliban and discourage their recruiting from our young population. -AMNA ZAMAN, Lahore, March 3.
