"While comic-books in the US tradition often feature heroes with super-powers such as Superman, Paasban's creators decided to concentrate on creating ordinary heroes, or "Guardians" they felt the Pakistani audience would relate better to.."
- Yahoo News
"Rather than simply depicting religious extremism as a flatly negative ideology, Paasban engages with the kinds of real-world events that often lead people to consider becoming jihadi"
"Paasban’s goal is to give young Pakistani children a set of core critical thinking skills, empowering them to see through jihadist rationale"
"The comic book's message could still prove a tough sell in Pakistan's schools, where much of the curriculum is devoted to the glorification of past Islamic conquests and jihad against Pakistan's enemies."
"The art is inspired by Alphonse Mucha and Pakistani artist Abdur Rahman Chughtai, though the action is more in line with Western comics and Japanese Manga”
- Malay Online
"'Paasban', or 'Guardians', is a unique series of comic books created by three Pakistanis to keep children, or anyone impressionable, away from extremism that has claimed many innocent lives in the country. "
- International Business Times
"Using remarkable illustrations coupled with a powerful script, Haider unfolds how despite being outnumbered, Maj Aziz Bhatti Shaheed led his troops to victory by tactfully fighting for five consecutive days and nights without any rest."
