The Indo-Pak situation has been tense for as long back as anyone can recall. It’s a rivalry as old as time, a clash of the titans, if you will. Two countries divided by religion. No more, no less. Every time the regime changes, India’s attitude towards Pakistan, and vice-versa, changes with it. In the midst of all this fighting and killing and dying and death threats, no one takes the time to ask the common man/woman/child, what they’d like.
There are so many people baying for blood on social media these days. It’s about time people started standing up for peace, too.
Because wars take from us our humanity. The trouble with wars is that regular people like you and I stand to lose everything. The casualties of war are varied and heartbreaking, every last one of them. The political entities who instigate these wars flee at the first sign of trouble. Their relatives aren’t fighting these wars, their people don’t die fighting them. It’s our loss entirely. As a people. And as human beings.
