LAHORE: Pakistan needs to have an alternative narrative to solve its national crisis, said journalist and author Sohail Warraich, while talking on Media Ethics in wake of recent controversies in Pakistan. During the talk held at Information Technology University (ITU) on 26th June, he said that the media needs to be free in this country otherwise people will just switch over to international news channels. Nowadays, international media sources quote Pakistani news but unfortunately, this will change if our freedom of press is curtailed. He also appreciated work done by Dr Umar Saif by establishing ITU with vision to produce high quality graduates to compete in international market.
He said that the crisis in Pakistan is collective and common so the solution needs to be collective and common as well. To make a new narrative in Pakistan, we need to decode the old narrative and enemies of the state and evolve a better strategy for Pakistan. He commented that before the partition, the majority of Muslims supported the Congress party as evidenced by the elections of that time, but within a short period of 9 years, the Muslim League gained support of the Muslim masses and their narrative had changed. He said that the new narrative must have education as it main point. Social and economic mobility can be achieved through education and we should adopt education as a philosophy.
