The Old Rivalry Between Pakistan And India
Pak vs India flags hasn’t been at peace with each other for the past 70 years. Ever since the beginning, India has been against the independence of Pakistan. Indians could not believe that a minority they had oppressed for so long is now living free. Which is why Pakistan vs India flags have gone to war with each other four times. Each day, the aggressive behavior of Indians escalate the possibility of a new conflict.

What the both nations fail to realize is that today, in a world of technology war and killing is not the ultimate solution, both nations have to solve their issues democratically to succeed globally but unfortunately, the Indian aggression is a menace to regional peace let alone Pakistan-India relationship.
India Vs Pakistan on the Battleground
And, while talking about India vs Pakistan, we can’t miss how they compare on the battleground. Both countries have nukes that means if they go to war, the only outcome will be a devastating war.
NOTE: You might not agree to facts in this video, but I posted it as it’s the only neutral video that does justice to the battlefield comparison. Other videos are biased.
It’s also interesting to note that a lot of Indians think that BBC and other international news channels publish news against India. For example, BBC runs a new story on India’s poverty every other month. Check out this epic post on Quora where one Indian asked this question publically.
But international media hasn’t left Pakistan alone either. Our identity has been hijacked. When you talk to a foreigner, he/she would relate bombs, exploding jackets, and drones with us. This is not what we are. Pakistani nation has been confused with the terrorists trained in Afghanistan.
Unfortunately, that’s not it. Even our gun manufacturing industry has been attacked in the past. An international film maker made a documentary on Guns of Pakistan. The problem with the documentary is the perspective. They see us as a ‘dangerous’ nation because we make some guns in Darra. I believe a lot of other countries make a lot more guns. The guns we make in Darra are merely replicas. Don’t forget to check our post on the documentary on guns in Pakistan.
