Appalled at the war-mongerers in our midst, especially on social media and the television media. If you so badly want to taste blood, sign up for the armed forces. I don't want my sisters and brothers in the armed forces dying just because of your clueless rants #SayNoToWar

Etched in my memory forever : Used to live near border in #Tharparkar #Sindh during 1971 when it became War Theatre, my father sent the family to Karachi in a Train , those Sirens , Blackout and Sounds of Jets/Mirage ! Still haunts me. #India #Pakistan #Peace —> #SayNoToWar
