If people of any particular country want peace in their country then they should maintain good relations with other countries. These relations are made especially with powerful countries of the world as only powerful countries can support a particular country but along the powerful countries of the world it is necessary to maintain good relations with neighboring countries. Pakistan have good relations with its neighboring countries but there is only one neighboring country of Pakistan with which Pakistan has seen number of ups and downs and that neighboring country is India. Pak-India relations have always fluctuated number of times for number of different situations.
Since the partition of India and Pakistan in August 1947 citizens of both the countries have witnessed only hate and anger for each other due to many different issues such as, the long lasting Kashmir issue, military issues, security issues and there are many uncountable issues for which citizens of both the countries hate each other. As these types of issues are always there that’s the reason Pak-India relation never became stable. There was a time when India became more concerned about the purchasing of arms that Pakistan does, India became more concerned about the aid given to Pakistan by the military of U.S.A and the most important thing for which India became concerned regarding Pakistan was the programme of nuclear weapons conducted by the Pakistan. Disputes were arising between 2 countries due to nuclear programme so in order to avoid any tension and look over the rising disputes the 2 countries decided to create a commission and they even created it. Then in 1988 in December it was decided by the Prime Ministers of both the countries, who were Rajiv Gandhi and Benazir Bhutto at that time that nuclear facilities of each other will not be attacked by any one from the 2 countries.
In 1997, the Pak-India relations became bit better as they resumed talking after 3 years. Both country’s Prime Ministers and foreign secretaries all of them met in order to solve the issues of India and Pakistan those were there all the time since the creation of India and Pakistan so peace between both the countries can be maintained and Pak-India relations can become better. Although these meetings were not so effective and outcome was not very big as it was being expected but it actually gave a hope that Pak-India relations will get better.
In 2001, an earthquake came in India that hit Gujarat. Many citizens of Gujarat die in that earthquake. As damages were huge so number of countries stood up in order to help India and along them Pakistan also came forward for helping India. President of Pakistan at that time was Pervez Musharraf who arranged for lots of supplies for relief and then a plane was sent by him that was released from Islamabad and it was sent to Ahmadabad. In return India did the same favor to Pakistan when Pakistan got hit by an earthquake in 2005. These natural calamities faced by both the countries truly brought both the countries bit closer to each other and there is a hope that Pak-India relations will get better one day.
