Dear Prince Hasan

Let me take this apportunity and congratulate and show my admiration of your assertive and adaptive maner and show my gratitude of how to deal in a situation when your government do not follow the voice of his nation to deploy new reforms in dealing with the new situation by following differnt aproach.
Lets hope that other countries follow your lead in how to deal with such an issue to minimise the blood shade of innocent people and lead their countries to a democracy that is long required.

I just wanted to show my gratitude to your hard work that you and your family including your father have given to your respected nation.
