Slogan - - Readers’ Thoughts - No­vaira Khan, Karachi.

You must have come across com­edy shows on Pak­istani tele­vi­sion chan­nels and heard re­pug­nant sen­tences mock­ing a caste or race. This is both in­fu­ri­at­ing AND DE­PRESS­ING 7HERE IS OUR TELE­VI­SION in­dus­try headed. It has the po­ten­tial and the re­sources to cre­ate mean­ing­ful com­edy, then why be­ing a racist has be­come the breed­ing ground of slap­stick com­edy? It is very im­por­tant to main­tain the nec­es­sary bal­ance of po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness in com­edy. 7E JUST NEED TO STEER OUR EN­ERGY IN A DI­REC­tion which is a lit­tle less com­mer­cial and more im­pact­ful.
