"Many thanks for the friendship and goodwill lavished on us in Karachi. It was wonderful to be there and take part in the latest Aman ki Asha effort.
The atmosphere and the quality of the exchanges were exceptional. I feel something has been achieved by the Aman ki Asha initiative to take dialogue away from the reflexively hostile towards more constructive areas. Let us hope this becomes a persuasive trendsetter.
Congratulations and all good wishes for the future of the venture"
- Salman Haidar,
former foreign secretary, India
"It was a pleasure to be part of this venture. I would like to wish Aman ki Asha the very best in this endeavour. I personally believe unless we have peace in the region and can live as compatible neighbours, we will not be able to resolve the insurmountable issues we face as a country and as a people."
- Roshaneh Zafar,
"It was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed every bit of my stay in Karachi. Thank you for the kind hospitality. Everything was take care of so efficiently. My congratulations to the Aman ki Asha team that made the seminar a great success. There was a lot for me to learn. It was also a great opportunity to make many friends. I will cherish this visit to Karachi after a long gap of 13 years. I look forward to staying in touch."
- Dr. Ajay Darshan Behera,
Studies Programme, Jamia Millia University,
"Let me congratulate Aman ki Asha for taking this potentially critical initiative, and for successfully organising this seminar with participation from Pakistan and India. I wish you all the success in bringing the two - estranged - neighbours closer, and I will certainly look forward to whatever contribution I can make to support your effort."
- Dr. Shoaib Suddle,
Federal Tax Ombudsman, Pakistan
