Sir: I want to draw the attention of our Pakistani media and government to the war in Syria. The Syrians are being persecuted and killed openly and shamelessly by the western powers. The ongoing bloodshed and brutalities against innocent children and civilians in Syria must stop. The world should wake up to this reality and address the crisis. They are also human beings like Kashmiris and Palestinians who are being treated like animals. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Syria has become a hell on earth. I would like to request our media to play a positive role in bringing the attention of the International community to this crisis. This will not resolve the complex conflict but it can definitely bring a significant positive change. TAYYABA KHAN Via E-Mail Published in Daily Times, March 11th 2018.
