Peaceful neighbours: ‘India, Pakistan need to learn from EU lesson’

People in Pakistan and India need to recount stories of human fortitude and kindness from the days of partition to cut through the propaganda narratives of hatred about each other’s country.
Those forgotten factual events in which people helped each other during the communal riots of 1947, regardless of religion, would be the perfect antidote for mutual misunderstandings, Pakistani and Indian peace activists said on Thursday.
The activists, who also urged visa relaxations and more people-to-people contact between the two countries, were speaking at a seminar organised by the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) to welcome a four-member Indian peace delegation.
Veteran peace activist and Secretary-General of the South Asian Fraternity Satya Paul Arora said he was a 13-year-old in the princely state of Faridkot at the time of partition.
