Dr. Noor Fatima (Expert on World Affairs):
Pakistan is expected to achieve more stability now. We will go beyond the conditionalities of IMF. We will not look forward to IMF again. We should win the confidence of foreign investors. India always does propaganda against Pakistan. It should become a beneficiary and stakeholder in this project. The materialization and actualization of CPEC is a response to Indian criticism. China has full realization that India has animosity with Pakistan.

Dr. Muhammad Khan (Defence Analyst):
This is a big win by Pakistani cricket team. This is a cricket and one team has to lose. Indians are not digesting this defeat. Kashmiris celebrate Pakistan’s victories and their hearts beat with Pakistan. Throughout the history, Kashmiris have celebrated our victories. Indian forces are continuously punishing them on the pretext that they want to be part of Pakistan. India is a huge country but it has small minded people. We should highlight the sacrifices of people of Kashmir. They are not going to live with India any more. The massive human right violations taking place in Kashmir are sufficient to move international community.
