ISLAMABAD: This is with reference to Mahreen Khan’s article of August 28 titled ‘The liberal lynch mob’. I used to love the writer’s television show but now I have found new respect for her. The piece was a fantastic read. I thank her for giving me hope and making me believe in myself. It is great to see a positive attitude from someone with all the self-loathing that one sees in society.
I request her to write more on this issue because by doing that she could help reduce frustration and extremism in our society. It is absolutely unnerving to hear of violent incidents one after another in the media. And there are so many that go unnoticed. I would also like to ask the writer that how are we to solve the problem of indifference, which has been gradually on the rise in Pakistan.
