  1. All GBIANS appreciates the efforts of all individuals and organizations striving for peace and integration in the region. At the same time after going through the text I feel still gap amongst all main stake holders of GB working on peace.For example why there is no participation of our religious leaders, political leaders,poets who have contributed a lot for maintaining peace and integration. As far as administration is concern they need to ensure the implementation of respect of law, discouraging law breachers,and tracing the people who are involved in corruption and taking steps for its eradication as well.. A Few days ago i was told by a well known scholar of GB that some service delivery staff demanded for certain amount to accomplish the task that was their part of job description. If it is happenning with Ph.Ds who are tutors of adminstration what would be with a common man. The top management is requested to take steps to discourage such corrupt personnel who are becoming the cause of defame and discredibility for Government.The purpose of my indication towards weakness or evil is to reform of institutions and Govt staff.

  2. All the people leaving in GB arepeace lover and always taking their efforts to to keep harmony and peace in the area.If we look to some spacail incidents happend last year it links to the pakistan based unrestness the government itself creats situations to convert the minds of the people to any tragic situation.otherwise pepole like each other.We hope the efforts towards harmony will bring changes.
