Media still lacks depth in its strategy, as some citizens believe that it has a much bigger responsibility to shoulder now that Pakistan has declared a state of war. At a time when extremists are trying to effect Pakistan with full force of violence, the media should not just play the role of a watchdog of the state but also act a as game-changer by effecting the minds through offering maximum space to liberal views. The media of Pakistan has delivered the goods through out our history but at such a critical time, the nation has a right to expect more. Citizens believe that an open-minded coverage of issues should be given top priority as that will engage the extremists indirectly and directly hack at the rationale they advance for their evil ideology. -ERAJ DANISH, Islamabad, December 3.
