Beforehand the Independence (in 1947), India, Pakistan and Bangladesh was known as British India which was controlled by a local leader known as Maharajas. When the British left the region in 1947, it was up to the individual states to determine which of the two new independent countries they wished to join and be a part of.
Thereafter, Independence over half a million of Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs were killed in communal riots during partition. Major number of Muslims living in India and Hindus and Sikhs living in Pakistan were migrated from their native birth place and sent to the considered nations according to their suitability resulting in a major massacred.
Formerly after Independence, there has been varied silent conflict among both the nations till date.
Both the south Asia countries has fought 3 extensive wars among which 2 were over the conflict of Kashmir, which have led to a state where millions of lives of both the civilians as well as army officials have been sacrificed.
Picturesquely, Kashmir once used to be the most beautiful state in India is now the most controversial place to visit because of the embodied situations within the area.
Though several processed attempts have been made in order to improve the relationship between the two regions which are, “The Shimla summit, The Agra summit and The Lahore summit”. These attempts were successful in deescalating tensions among the two nations but failed to hold it strong.
Throughout the whole conflict when political parties are injecting the noxious hatred among the people, several attempts have been made by people of same territories trying to bring some sanity to the situation and promote the message of peace and togetherness.
Both in the world and in every community, state or region, we need to have peace. The people of India and Pakistan share the same needs hence there is a need that we need to make our territories peaceful and spread a positive message around the world. A big group always not required making a difference; sometimes the smallest group can make a chance.
