It all started with the invasion that took control of the system just like a virus that enters the human body or cells and takes control of the machinery in order to produce its own replicas. The steady invasion took control of the machinery of the subcontinent of Indo-Pakin 1857; the British period was marked by revolutions and increasing political awareness as well as sowed the seed for eternal religious hatred specially Hindus and Muslims who were previously living together in complete harmony. Political and educational revolutions that resulted as a result of unjust attitude of the British rulers laid the foundations to tear apart the continent into pieces.
1947 was a year marked by the emergence of two new countries in the continent of Asia,it was the beginning of stress between two neighboring newly born countries; who accepted the existence of each other officially but up till now, even after a time span of 67 years, each has failed to accept the existence of the other; politically, socially, morally,psychologically and mentally. We are gladder when Indian cricket team gets out of the World Cup than when our team reaches the final. Many problems have arisen just because of the fact that our minds have not accepted the ground realities. Kashmir Dispute,separation of East wing of Pakistan, violation of Indus water treaty, wars and numerous others have been brought to light.
Why to fight? Can’t we live like good neighbors without interfering in other’s civil affairs?Of course we can if we just put our egos at the back and look forward to upcoming challenges of the developing world without even having the foggiest hint of hatred or rebellious feelings against each other. We now need to stop what we have been doing through the years and must focus on positivity by joining hands. All problems can be solved this way without having more wars and more conflicts.
