Headline: ASIA/PAKISTAN – The President of Signis Pakistan: “Mass media are instruments of peace and hope in times of pandemic”
Lahore – “Secular mass media and Christian media in Pakistan have an important role in this difficult time: they have highlighted the tragedy of Covid-19 and its effects on family life, in particular how people have lost their jobs and have no source of income to take care of their family’s basic needs. The coronavirus has greatly affected social life, religious and political activities, the economy and culture. Not only has it destroyed people’s peace of mind, but it has also led them to live in fear. Many sick people were afraid to go to hospital for fear of dying”. This is what Fr. Qaisar Feroz, OFM Cap, executive secretary of the Episcopal Commission for social communications and president, of “Signis Pakistan” told Fides.
