War denotes death and destruction
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has expressed his views rightly on warmongering that those people who order war, they should be given guns and made to fight. He says that within a day all conflicts will get over as their legs will start shaking. Almost all Indians are peace loving and abhor war. India has only fought war when it was imposed on it in the past. With becoming nuclear power, India is the first country which declared that it would abide by the principle of no first use. War only brings destruction, loss of lives and disasters. India is a non-violent country. The result of war is the loss of fathers, sons, brothers and husbands of one or the other. Children lose their fathers, sisters lose their brothers and husbands as the soldiers and officers killed in the war are fathers, brothers and husbands of one or the other respectively. Warmongering must stop at all costs. Our soldiers must not be pushed to fight war. Apart from Kargil, India has fought three wars with Pakistan. Though it has won all the three wars, Pakistan has learnt no lesson despite suffering heavy loss of lives and property. In all the three wars, it was Pakistan which thrust them on India all the time. A Jawan killed in war irrespective of any country is a father, son, brother and husband of someone. All Indians want peace with their neighours. It is the handul of warmongers who make clamour for going to war. Among the neighbours, Pakistan is the only country which has been hostile to us since it was created. India has also fought a war with China in 1962. It lost as it was caught unawares through deceiving. China being the largest country in the region, it wants to establish hegemony; and for that it tries to take all neighbours of India into its own fold. As Pakistan is the only hostile beighbour of India, China always wants to keep it in good humour. Despite several overt and covert provocations by Pakistan and China, India exercises maximum restraint to avoid war. So, war must be avoided as it only brings death, destruction and disaster. All celebrities like Salman Khan must come forward to advocate for promoting peace and development between Pakistan and India. Indian army is apolitical while Pak army is involved in all political developments of the country, especially in regard to Jammu and Kashmir. Pak army has strong say in the democratically elected government of Nawaz Sharif in Pakistan. So, the warmongering can also not be stopped by a one-sided effort. Pakistan too should come forward against the idea of war. At a promotional event for his upcoming film ‘Tubelight’, the ‘Sultan’ star Salman, who in the movie experiences the turmoil of emotions that one goes through after being separated by a loved one as a result of war, expressed his opinion on warmongering and said, “In war, the Armies of both sides lose their lives. The families are without their sons or their fathers. They have to live their whole lives without them. The Kabir Khan-directorial is set against the backdrop of the 1962 Indo-China war and narrates the story of two brothers who were separated by the war, when one of them joins the Indian Army to fight the Chinese and gets captured by their Army.
