Wishing you all Eid Mubarak and a Happy New Year. Hope the year ahead turns out to be great for all of you.
On another note I would like to mention the blog’s comment policy. As yet no policy has been put up on the blog and we would like to keep it that way. However, recently certain comments have been unpleasant and I would encourage all readers and contributors to the blog to exercise caution when making comments. The blog encourages healthy debate and that is why it would be a shame if comments were moderated. Right now a comment is posted in real-time, which allows for a free-flowing exchange of arguments. We would not like to change that.
However, if in the process people continue to personally attack others then this will not be accepted. One must not attack the individual, but attack the argument made by the indvidual. This is imperative for a healthy debate. I am glad that those involved have realised that things may have gotten out of hand and hope that this will not be repeated in the future. However, we appreciate all your interesting comments and please continue to post them in the future.
Also, the length of the comments brings me to another point. A lot of the comments are well-argued, well-researched and interesting posts in their own right. If any of the visitors to this blog would like to write on any topic concerning Pakistan please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You may email the post or state the topic you would like to write on. Also, tell us the name by which you would like it to be posted. If we feel that it fits in with the rest of the blog we will subsequently publish it. Finally, I would like to stress that you should continue to post your comments on all kinds of topics that interest you and concern Pakistan or Pakistanis all over the world.
