Pakistan is allegedly blamed for the attack. There is no sound evidence that indicates the forces behind it. Post- bombing investigation has not begun yet. The politician and media are already taking their anger on Pakistan which includes hate speeches and warning to go to war with the opposing country.

One of the other stunts that are being pulled over the internet is the removal of all Pakistani songs from their platform. T-series has recently removed all of the songs of Pakistani artist from their channels. Other events include the decision of not releasing Indian movies in Pakistan.

Is it really a reasonable approach?

 The undue expression of hatred based solely on feelings will not get both countries anywhere. The loss of lives is greater than anything. It should be mourned over and respected. This loss is a loss of humanity that surpasses the ground boundaries. The need of time is the stoppage of childish behavior from both sides as well as the hate speeches. The hate speech should not be praised and encouraged by both sides. The countries should stand as one in finding a solution against terrorism.
