KARACHI: Following an attack in Indian Occupied Kashmir and subsequent rising tensions between India and Pakistan, it’s shocking to see the displays of jingoism by people, especially the Indian mainstream media. However, there are a few sane voices on both sides of the Indo-Pak border that are trying to provide an alternative point of view, one that tells people to be patriotic by rejecting the idea of war and #saynotowar.
Here’s what they have to say:
Love Thy Army… Help Them Live
The truth is: politicians and televangelists, and the educated masses with access to social media propagating war from the comfort of their homes, forget that soldiers are ordinary humans, with children and families, much like themselves. If they really loved their armed forces’ officers, they wouldn’t want them to die.
Who benefits from war?
War reaps no benefit. In fact, it is a battle of egos and hyper-nationalism gone too far.
More reason to reject war
War is self-destructive
Pakistani warmonger is no different than an Indian warmonger
