Dear Aman ki Asha,
Thank you for initiating this pure, inspiring and bold effort by two of the best-known media houses in the subcontinent to build peace between India and Pakistan. All activities and efforts being done under this campaign of Aman ki Asha will bear fruit one day.
We at Foundation Public School, Karachi (established in 1981 with nine branches in Karachi and Hyderabad), believe in the individual's freedom of thought and spirit, and critical thinking. We aim to provide opportunities for our
students to flourish and learn in a conducive environment, and prepare them to grow and develop into mature human beings, capable of making decisions realistically and with compassion.
We proudly took the initiative of promoting Aman ki Asha's message of peace amongst our youth. It was made a part of their curriculum and students of all age groups from 4 years to 15 years actively participated in it.
Teachers spoke to them in their classes to spread the message of love, peace and unity in the young hearts. It was simply amazing to see students display their thoughts and feelings in the form of artwork, write-ups, messages etc.
Competitions were held grade wise in which students put up great boards about Aman ki Asha. The overwhelming response by the students shows their love and respect for both the countries, India and Pakistan.
We would like to present to you the different work done by our students.
Kindly let us know how this can be delivered to you.
We pray to God that this peace initiative brings together both these nations and its people, as we truly believe that "India and Pakistan are stronger together".
Wishing Aman Ki Asha all the very best.

The News on Sunday Special Report: India Pakistan prisoners more editions
We probably didn't need to do this Special Report. Newspaper stories don't matter when it comes to Indians in Pakistani jails and vice versa. In fact, 'vice versa' sums it up. We do to them what they do to us.
Except when the two countries decide to begin talking, yet again! This time a little before the foreign secretary level talks, some Pakistani prisoners were released by India (and vice versa must have happened) and some more were release....read more
