Opinion/Editorial:

  • Humanity, pluralism, equality:
  • Pakistan is nursing deep wounds. DIG Ahmed Mobeen and SSP Zahid Gondal are among the many dearly departed whose deaths stand testament to the toll terrorism has taken on the people of Pakistan. Many heroes have sacrificed their lives so others may live. Two very brave men died trying to defuse a bomb last week in Quetta. Terrorists tried to take away a piece of our history and culture in Sindh and Pakistanis fought back by going back to the shrine and making it their own again. We should salute people such as Sheema Kermani for bringing Dhamal back to its home of the Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine. (http://nation.com.pk/E-Paper/Lahore/2017-02-22/page-6/detail-4)
