The present scenario of Pakistan is very poor. There is hopelessness everywhere about stability of the country. There is no option left for us but to convince the world that we are not terrorists. The ray of hope is our art and our literature. Unfortunately, this nation has never shown any interest in art and literature. We have no voice and no image. We exist as people see us, not as we see ourselves. Consequently, there are many misconceptions about us at the international level. We need to convey to the world the message of peace and love that is intrinsic to our culture. We need to prove that the majority of our nation is totally against the wave of terrorism sweeping across our land. -INAM ULLAH MARWAT, Peshawar, November 24.
