Give peace and dialogue a chance, expats say

“Sentiments are running high on either side, but in times like these, it is important to exercise restraint and be responsible. Common people on both sides of the border want peace and any mindless violence is an act of terrorism where both countries suffer.

“In the UAE, country that both Pakistani and endian expatriates have adopted as their home, there exists a unique and unparalleled homogeneous mix of diverse cultures, religions, ethnicities and nationalities. People are very tolerant of each other‘s views and perceptions without any prejudice.

“Hate mongering spreads like wildfire through the irresponsible use of social media .i think people need to exercise self-control, think rationally and not emotionally, and refrain from gossip and slander.”
