Protest as a Social Reform | Dr. Tahir Kamran's Latest from The News on Sunday

Prof. Dr. Tahir Kamran, Head of Department of Liberal Arts, has contributed an article titled " Protest as a Social Reform" to the recent edition of The News on Sunday.

Article Excerpt:
What lessons can we, the Pakistanis, learn from the May revolt in France? It was a moment of great global inspiration. We think about globalisation all the time now but it was so new at that moment that people felt really connected in a visceral, emotional way to what was happening in other parts of the world, says Bourg. “Because of the scale, magnitude and intensity of the French events, it was immediately cited everywhere as the furthest reach of possibility. If we are working to change the society in the world, this is an example of how far things can go.”

What lessons can we, the Pakistanis, learn from that movement? If the state wants to resolve conflicts it must be through negotiation instead of resorting to violence.
