The military stand-off between arch rivals seems to be de-escalating. There is an established opinion that dialogue may resume soon.
Many Indian, Pakistani, and Chinese intellectuals came forward in support of peace in the Asian sub-continent. Even, earlier the Pakistani premier has assured that the territory of Pakistan would not be used for launching any terrorist in the neighboring countries. And even few Chinese intellectuals were recently pitching for peace process.
However, certain non-state actors from trio sides of the border are pitching for war. Sitting in air-conditioned newsrooms they do not realize that the theatre of war is being played out on the turf of Kashmir and Ladakh and we people suffer. Besides, trio sides being nuclear powers there is little chance that they can bully each other into submission.
An armed escalation between the trio countries means buying of more and more weapons from the arms manufacturers in USA and Russia. It means subjecting millions and millions on trio sides of the border to hunger, illiteracy and basic infrastructure. Besides, the arms manufacturers enjoy the war. It means more clients to them.
The anchors of national news channels give a jingoistic touch to a military war and invokes seven hundred year medieval rule of Mughals. These so called news anchors launch attack on neighbouring countries from their studios, which the people believe that these news studios are more dangerous than nuclear weapons.
Such mentally unstable people should not be given a chance to air their views on news channels, and should be simply boycotted. On the other two sides some humor-based skits have been in bad taste. The war mongers have to be sidelined for the establishment of peace in the sub-continent.
