Pakistan is a nation that believes in a peaceful world and solidarity with other nations. Recently the media of Pakistan has played a very important role in promoting regional and international peace through spreading the message of harmony. However, more steps need to be taken at regular intervals to keep this effort consistent. Citizens believe engaging people from all walks of life at grass roots level would be another good idea. Awareness on issues such as peace, human rights, democracy, antiwar and justice would minimize the effect of extremism in our country and, thus, bring about real changes. The tide is turning, changes underway. Pakistan will soon be rid of extremism. -ERAJ DANISH, Islamabad, December 2
