Although the whole country unites and celebrates the sacrifices made by our Armed forces their unity is limited to a tweet or a post

Till yesterday evening I was of the belief that asking Pakistani artists to leave the country was unfair and uncalled for , that was till I heard a statement made by a retired Army. In his statement he mentions that ” although the whole country unites and celebrates the sacrifices made by our Armed forces their unity is limited to a tweet or a post” , he continues “Any member of our armed forces will gladly sacrifice his/her life for their country but why should sacrifice be limited only to the armed forces ? Why cant Karan Johar sacrifice the profits from his future film with a certain Pakistani actor for the sake of showing his solidarity against a country we are currently at war /cold war with ?

The truth is that we artists , businessmen , writers , take it for granted that war against another country is limited to our armed forces

Why cant a business man doing trade with Pakistan cut off his trade ties till the time Pakistan takes some form of affirmative action against those who they often seem to harbour and protect ? . This statement made more sense to me than any of the news debates being televised. The truth is that we artists , businessmen , writers , take it for granted that war against another country is limited to our armed forces and that of our enemy , but alas the truth is far from that . We don’t have to pick up guns or lay down our lives for the sake of our country , our brave forces have already volunteered to do that for us , but don’t you feel that it is our moral duty to do whatever we can in our own capacity to put pressure on a country that harbours terrorists and has been our enemy since its formation despite all our efforts at peace?

We will open our homes and our hearts to them just as we have been for all these years . But till then we must unite as a country in every possible manner

Let them show our people a little bit of respect , let them work on solving their own affairs , let them take a firm stand against terrorism and then see how well we treat their writers actors and businessmen . Let them show us just once that the loss of life on our side is of some significance and that they care, and we will open our homes and our hearts to them just as we have been for all these years . But till then we must unite as a country in every possible manner . Our sacrifices could be different but they must be in tandem , as a country, together.
