On 14th February, a Pakistani militant group, Jaish-e-Mohammed attacked a convoy carrying CRPF jawans. Over 44 jawans were martyred in the incident, which left the country in a state of mourning.
The IAF avenged the Pulwama tragedy yesterday, by crossing the LoC and bombing the JeM and LeT training camps across the border. In 19 minutes, the training camps had been completely obliterated.
You would think that this would have ended the hostilities between the two nations, but clearly, this was only the beginning.News reports of aerial engagements have been flooding in, and currently, we are aware that Pakistan has taken down one of India’s fighter jets. One pilot, Abhinandan, is missing in action.
War mongers and keyboard warriors on social media have been demanding war on Pakistan. But most are failing to realise the actual cost of war. One country cannot simply declare war on the other.
However, as these tensions keep mounting between India and Pakistan, civilians in both nations are scared for their lives and would do anything to call a truce.
Soon after news of combat started flowing in, “#SayNoToWar” began trending on Twitter. Not just Indians, but even Pakistanis have been tweeting the same.

Not going to post the video, but the way a Pakistani soldier held severely injured Indian pilot's hand while asking him to stay calm was the most touching moment. This bond of #Humanity that unites us must win. #SayNotoWar

I hope captured IAF Pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan is taken care as POW according to the Geneva Conventions & handed over to India just as captured Flight Lieutenant K Nachiketa (pictured) was handed over back after 8 days during Kargil War. Hope sense prevails. #SayNoToWar pic.twitter.com/L21gpSwhcR
