The absurd, venomous, and hateful advances from Modi to aid him in upcoming elections has made the peace process more difficult. The after-effects of Modi’s nationalistic election campaign are so toxic that opposition can’t even dare to disagree or present a contrasting opinion to the entire episode. From media to Bollywood – all turned into extremist factions romanticising and propagating war.
Despite Pakistan’s built profiling across the world as extremists and terrorists, one cannot disregard how sanely and maturely our side responded. From top leadership to media outlets, even after clear violations of LoC, invited for peace talks, revealing to the world who the real warmonger is.
While Indian political rivalry fell to an absurd point of teasing each other to actually go on a full-fledged war with India, Pakistani political leaders stood behind the government and Armed Forces. Rather than adding fuel to the fire, all were on the same page that no one loses of wins in a war. In fact, it is the only loss for humanity.
“I ask India: with the weapons you have and the weapons we have, can we really afford such a miscalculation? If this escalates, things will no longer be in my control or in Mod” – the Prime Minister Imran Khan said.
“I once again invite you: we are ready. We understand the grief India has suffered in Pulwama and are ready for any sort of dialogue on terrorism. I reiterate that better sense should prevail. Let’s sit together and settle this with talks”.
His mature and tolerant response has won hearts on both sides of the border, as despite the thoroughly exploitive hate campaign, ‘PeaceNotWar’ is the top Twitter trend in India. People have rejected Modi’s fascist policies and have taken to social media platforms voicing that they are pro-peace, not pro-war.
Here are a few of the responses, which clearly show rejection of Modi’s narrative on both sides of the border.

Dear Ram, war is not in favour of any country. Just let your politicians knows don't bring war in for election. In any case its a loss of countries and people.#peacenotwar is our priority.#paksitanzindabad

کسی بھی ملک کی boundary کراس کرنے کا مطلب جنگ کا اعلان تھا کہ وہ امن نہیں چاہتا. جنگ کے نام پر خوش ہونے والی عوام سے گزارش ہے کہ گزشتہ جنگوں کی صورتحال پر غور تو معلوم ہوگا کہ نقصان صرف جانی اور مالی نہیں ہوتا..
آشیانے تباہ ہوجائیں تو عزتیں بھی پامال کی جاتی ہے #PeaceNotWar
