The culture of globalization that is spreading all over the world has also caught on here in Pakistan. It is devastating the cultural, moral and ethical values of Pakistani society. Our national authorities should keep a watchful eye on this dreadful phenomenon so that we could preserve our identity as an Islamic republic. It is also a responsibility of the media to purge the society of such harmful influences so that we do not entirely become westernised. -UMAIR ASIF, Islamabad, via e-mail, March 16.
