A montage of the India-Pakistan international relations can be sketched upon the blame game trepidations of either sides. This never ending disquieting argument of finding each other at fault is a trait which is logical at time and at times completely absurd.

With no tangible international organisation in existence to have a superior authority over the two countries to execute a line-up, the gruesome animosity is merely going to distress the people, and not the politicians.

With all said and done by the respective governments, it’s the media which feeds itself out of this interphase between the silence of proposition. Recently, an editorial called “Security State” in a leading English daily of Pakistan, mentioned India as their foremost nemesis. This proposition was put forth on the basis of apparent, ulterior motives of India to hamper the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, highlighted by the Frontier Works Organisation (FWO).

The tapping of media in the political interphase, between the two nations on unproven allegations simply crushes the neutrality of media. To allege a country as nemesis just on the basis of speculation and truling to force an argument on the state of conflict amongst them only represents failure of media ethics.

For how long can the organized outrage of media be justified as real journalism?

Fuelling the hatred towards India is turning into the crust of Pakistan’s domestic as well as foreign policy. By the tossing of blame on to the other side of LOC, Pakistan keeps itself in peace.

This unparalleled strategy of Pakistan military to attack the integrity of India is a primordial strategy of Pakistan and fuelling of such statements by the media, validates it. The editorial also glorified the Pakistan Army over their elected members of parliament, stating “When the divide between the civilian leadership and the army is discussed, it is clear that the army functions effectively and fills the gaps in all arenas where the civilian leadership fails time and time again.”

The media needs to take a high road of unprejudiced journalism, focusing only on evidence and not fall prey to political motives of a state, be it on this side or that side of the border.

The UK government on Thursday announced that it will move India from the red to the amber list on Sunday, in the country's latest update to the 'Red-Amber-Green' traffic light ratings for arrivals into England amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means the visit visas for the UK from India are open, in addition to other long-term visas that have remained open. But travellers from India arriving in England can complete a 10-day quarantine at home or in the place they are staying (not mandatorily quarantine in a managed hotel).

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
