Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, viewing Pakistan- India rivalry with his glasses of pessimism, said that for both Pakistan and India to coexist Pakistan will have to become a secular state. He remarked Pakistan as being a religious country and thought he could bolster his arguement by using this bogus reason.
When Pakistan was partitioned from India in 1947, the main reason was religion or ethnicity as muslims were not allowed to practice religion freely by their Hindu masters. Decades ago, the persecution at the hand of hindus yielded Pakistan for which the concrete reasons described by the historians was religious difference, so this is a pretty dumb statement by the Indian Army Chief.
Federal Minister of Information, Fawad Chaudhry commented on the situation that India has to decide whether their Army and government are on the same page because PM Modi appreciated the good gesture shown by Pakistan.
On the contrary, Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, in the groundbreaking ceremony of the opening of the Kartarpur corridor emphasized bilateral relationship and peace with India with his ever optimistic view. PM Khan accentuated the possibility of peace between the two countries by referring to the real life evidence of Germany and France and cited that if those two countries can have peace then why can’t Pakistan and India.
