  • India-Pakistan tension on a new high after serial attacks on Indian Air Force Base.

    On the very day (Jan 2, 2016) Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a visit to Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to ease the tensions between the two countries, Indian Air Force base at Pathankot was attacked by six militants belonging to the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed. After several long hours of an intense firefight, the attackers were finally neutralised. The investigations into the tragic incident linked the militants to Pakistan by virtue of origin, training, and base of operations. And as such, understandably, the tension between India and Pakistan are higher than the Everest, with both countries postponing peace talks and India threatening to sever all ties with its neighbour and rival.

    This tension between India and Pakistan has been an age-old problem. Religion alone caused a great rift between the two countries and since Pakistan used to be a part of the Indian peninsula, not many people were able to forgive the Pakistanis for clamoring independence in the late 1940s.

      It's sad to think that gone are the days where diplomatic talks can fix such situations. Now, weapons, violence and murder are the key ingredients in proving someone's stand. And the saddest thing is that civilians, innocent people, are also affected by such wars. If religion cannot bind us, it should at least leave us with some morals and principles. But more and more people use religion as a rationale nowadays. The thing is, religion may be interpreted differently by different people and so it is never universal or objective. This causes the rift between different groups of people.

        The words of truth have been spoken! Religion is never a tool to judge people with, it's meant to realise yourself and the world around you. The goal of almost all religions is to reach a higher level of understanding about nature and attain peace, both of the body and mind. But sadly, perversions of the whole idea is taken as the norm these days, and common people have to pay the price due to the acts and actions of a fringe minority.

          I fear India and Pakistan going at it could portend some serious issues for the world. Obviously those two nations would suffer horribly if an atomic exchange occurred, but the amount of damage globally could be dramatic. Here's hoping cooler heads prevail.

            Yeah, hope is all we (as in the common people of both countries) have left. But as of right now, the situation looks bleaker by the moment. Repeated military-fueled terror attacks, (at the exact times when a diplomatic talk is scheduled to be held), rise of radical groups here and there in the countries and this mess with the recent bully in the block named ISIS, things don't look too good. An all-out nuclear warfare is highly unlikely (and if it happened, things would escalate very quickly) but a military stand-off may happen soon enough.
