Can India and Pakistan find friendship?
The Guardian - www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2010/mar/25/india-pakistan-government-peace
“Like siblings locked in an endless rivalry, India and Pakistan have bickered for well over six decades. Transforming that rivalry into a mature, productive relationship will be difficult. But the consequences of continued animosity will be much worse.”

Is Pakistan Part of South Asia? Yes!
Huffington Post - www.huffingtonpost.com/aparna-pande/is-pakistan-part-of-south_b_803654.html
“Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir recently remarked that "Pakistan, India and other countries in South Asia and the region's population of over one billion people cannot be geographically separated." The remark represents a departure from years of attempts by Pakistan to deny its South Asian identity and link up instead with the Muslim Middle East.”

Pakistani Public Opinion
Pew Research Center - hhttp://www.pewglobal.org/2009/08/13/pakistani-public-opinion/
“Pakistanis see their country in crisis. They give their national government lower ratings than at any time in this decade, and almost no one is satisfied with national conditions. Crime and terrorism are seen as major problems by virtually everyone. And huge percentages of Pakistanis also see their country struggling mightily with corruption and a deteriorating economy.”

Why Pakistan’s future looks bright
The Express Tribune - tribune.com.pk/story/882045/why-pakistans-future-looks-bright/
“Is Pakistan the most exciting place to live in the 21st century? It’s almost as if someone has unleashed good news for the country on all fronts; economic, political and security. Over $40 billion in Chinese investment are on their way but more importantly a bet by the world’s next superpower to tie its regional ambitions to Pakistan’s prosperity.”
