While celebrating Eid, it was quite tragic to hear about the trade of attacks, continuing till date, across the Line of Control (LoC), near the Sialkot border, resulting in heavy causalities – of civilians, mostly.

Like always, both sides are shifting the blame on each other for the “unprovoked violation of ceasefire”. This is followed by expressions of intense, outrageous emotions in both countries, all escalated to the point that many seem excited for a full-fledged war between the two countries.
