Sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik’s offering for Raksha Bandhan at Puri beach, Odisha, with the message urging India and Pakistan to “Stop Bullets, Be Friends”

Over 400 artists, writers, activists, academics, lawyers, businesspeople, journalists and students from Pakistan and India appeal to their governments, fellow citizens, politicians and media to strive for peaceful relations between the two countries

***

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t started out as an admin note to members of the Aman ki Asha Facebook group, by volunteer moderator Samir Gupta on August 30, 2015. The pinned post he put up on the AKA group wall read:

“Peace or war?

As our governments and militaries lose their minds and continue to escalate this dangerous game of military conflict, it is the duty of all members of this group to stand together and demand peace in all fora available. We expect members to be responsible for peace and refrain from making provocative posts and comments. We expect you to be bipartisan”

Several group members commented there, expressing their support for the idea.

“Don’t let the leaders of the two countries do anything stupid like start a war. India and Pakistan are on the cusp of economic takeoff. A war will take them back to zero…” wrote journalist Ras Siddiqui.

Konchadi Vasanth Pai, an octogenarian moderator of the group based in Banglore agreed. “Yes, war is no solution. Easing of tension is the need of the hour. We should be very careful in what we post here. Provocative posts and photos only whip up hysteria and generate much heat and no light.”

“Peace,” commented prominent actor and director Rubina Ashraf “….and no more Pakistan hate movies pleeeaasssseeee!!”

Another group member, Tulika Bathija in Mumbai wrote: “I am just thinking aloud, can the people of India and Pakistan write an open letter to PM Modi and PM Nawaz Sharif to pay heed to the voices of Indians and Pakistanis and call for peace. Media and politicians are relentlessly threatening each other, boasting of their supremacy and military prowess. Why can’t the peace rhetoric occupy the attention of the masses and the media? That’s possible if we as two nations come together and say, ‘I’m an Indian and I don’t want to fight with Pakistan. I want to be friends. Let me be friends.’ ‘I’m a Pakistani and I don’t want to fight with India. I want to be friends, let me be friends’.”

“What good can come out of spewing hatred?” she added. “Let’s have a petition that gets noticed not just by the Indian/Pakistani media but the international media. I completely agree with Samir, it’s quite disheartening to find news related to war on Aman ki Asha. This is not the forum to discuss war. In order to combat the war cry, the peace chant needs to grow louder, noisier and consume the very consciousness of every Indian and every Pakistani. Let’s not give our government the satisfaction that we can be swayed into a sudden upsurge of ‘nationalism’. Let’s talk peace.”

“WE REFUSE TO BE ENEMY,” asserted businessman Parmod Pahwa in New Delhi.

Pakistani retiree Javed Iqbal in Islamabad commented: “War is no solution for both the countries. We are so (full of) emotions due to media and political hypes that we are all running after the guns, instead of looking for the rose. God forbid if we enter into any war, it will end into total destruction of both the countries. Only international military industrial complex, corporates including real estate developers will be the winner.”

“War can never be the solution to any problem,” added Anil Kumar from Hyderabad, India. “Only people to people contact can only bring peace as political leaders On both sides failed to do the same at this juncture. Hopefully by this platform we will achieve the same irrespective of political differences.”

From this exchange emerged the appeal by Pakistanis and Indians for peace, an open letter to our governments, fellow citizens, politicians and media. Within hours of the appeal being sent out by Aman ki Asha members to their personal networks, the statement garnered over 400 endorsements.

Prominent signatories include well known actors Nandita Das, Shabana Azmi, Rubina Ashraf and Saba Hamid, musicians Mekaal Hasan, Rahul Ram, Arieb Azhar, and Sharmistha Chatterjee, satirist Sanjay Rajoura, lawyer Asma Jahangir, artist Salima Hashmi, writer Fehmida Riaz, filmmakers Anand Patwardhan, Ammar Aziz and Aisha Gazdar as well as several respected academics, journalists, and members of the business community.

Following is the text of the statement and the signatories received within the first 24 hours. Meanwhile, more people are endorsing the statement. Are the governments listening?

Appeal by Pakistanis and Indians for peace: Open letter to governments, fellow citizens, politicians and media

As our governments, politicians and militaries continue to irresponsibly escalate a dangerous game of conflict with its ongoing human cost, we appeal to our fellow citizens to stand together and demand peace at all fora available.

We urge our fellow citizens to be responsible for peace and refrain from making provocative statements, or social media posts and comments.

We need peace, for the sake of over 1.5 billion people in our region. We need to resolve our differences and move towards progress; aggression has never solved any differences for anybody. Our entire history bears proof of this. Peace and talks to sort out issues is the only serious hope.

We pledge to remain bipartisan and invite others to take this approach and to lobby with their elected representatives for peace and dialogue between Pakistan and India

In solidarity and with hope,
