All this hate between Pakistanis and Indians is insane. They easily get along overseas but act foolishly at home because they have only heard stories about Hindus being dirty or Muslims being selfish- the fact is that all this nonsense creates hate for no reason. Majority of the Hindus and Muslims are good people who want to lead a good life. Hate eats you from inside out so the only person you are destroying is yourself. Stop hating people- god is not going to throw 80% of the world's population if they did good deeds but believe in a different god.
