Pakistan's Dawn Media Group CEO Hameed Haroon today said universities of India should be allowed to interact with those in Pakistan in order to foster better people to people contact between both the countries.
"Till now no government has allowed this to happen," Haroon said.
He was speaking at the launch of the Karachi Mumbai Friendship Forum and the Sindh Research Project, in collaboration with the Observer
Research Foundation (ORF) here this evening.
"Berlin walls must come down because there are no limits to the human spirits. We need to know each other's legacies," he said.
"Textbooks in Pakistan still tell students that Pakistan was created in 712 AD," Haroon said, adding that "the notion of a south east family should be never overcome by the separatist tendencies".
"Both India and Pakistan have been exploiting Kashmiris," he said, adding that "governments of India and Pakistan have to speak to people across the border".
