Petitioning Govt of India and Govt of Pakistan

Swiftly self-impose restraint and urgently move for mutual peace

Following the LOC killings not only have the peace dividends been ruined but the emerging rhetoric indicates tension escalating dangerously between these two natural and inalienable allies, unfortunately also nuclear-armed.

Letter to
Govt of India and Govt of Pakistan
A Joint Appeal by

We the people of India and the people of Pakistan do hereby jointly and unequivocally condemn the violation of ceasefire by both sides, and urge both the governments and the two armies to sincerely honour the 2003 ceasefire scrupulously.

We strongly condemn and mourn the killing of one Pakistani soldier and of two Indian soldiers. We firmly declare that beheading or mutilating human bodies is unacceptable and barbaric and urge both the nations to identify and punish the culprits. Since the Govt of Pakistan has denied its army’s hand in this gruesome act, we request it to issue such an assurance.

We also request both the nations to swiftly initiate a process of restoring mutual confidence and to counsel to their defense chiefs, their ministers and official spokespersons, their retired defense officers, security advisors and their media due restraint in their public utterances.

We are sure that posterity will judge our courage and patriotism not from the revenge we wreaked but from the peace we won for our respective people in these troubling times, and from the progress resulting from such peace.
