Raza Ahmed Sukkhera (IT Expert): “Private organizations are invited on open bid to run incubation centre with their own human resource. The government should also establish such centers in Quetta and Karachi as well. It is a good opportunity for the youth. It is also a positive development that the government has decided to provide broadband facilities in far flung areas. There were almost 3 million users of internet before 2013. When the government launched 3G and 4G services the number of users increased to 4.5 million in very short span of time. Now, the government is also planning to launch 5G which will be a revolution in IT sector in the country.

Hamayun Iqbal Shami (Chairman, Pakistan Economic Forum): “The technology can be regarded as primary source in economic development and the various technological changes contribute significantly in the development of underdeveloped countries. The rapid rate of growth can be achieved through high level of technology. IT sector in our country is progressing at fast speed. It will definitely support the youth of the country to play key role in economic development. I am satisfied with the performance of IT Ministry.

Dr. Ayesha Nazir (Psychologist): “Parents, teachers, schools and the society have to play role against child abuse. Parents and teachers could easily detect the symptoms. If the child starts behaving contrary to the nature then we should be alert that there is something wrong. The child abuse may not only be done by a stranger and the child can also be abused by his own family members. Teachers and parents need to give confidence to the children to share each and every thing openly. We should have to take early precautionary measure if the child starts behaving abnormally. The government should add a subject for the safety and security of the child in syllabus. The culprits should be given exemplary punishment in order to avoid further cases.

Dr. Aneela Kamal (Director, National Institute of Psychology): “80% of the child abuse is being observed at homes. Most of the abusers are not strangers but are our friends and family members. It is the responsibility of the parents to have strong communication with their Children. Children often keep abuse a secret, but barriers can be broken down by talking openly about it. When children are abused by adults they are also confused by the fact that this person is supposed to be a protector, a caretaker, and worthy of trust simply.
