Just a thought
I want to tell my Indian friends that we know you're hurting and we know how helpless you feel. We feel helpless too, because we can't reach across and tell you we're with you. We can't do anything about the anger you will feel and we can't do anything about politicians blaming Pakistan and yet another finger pointed at Muslims.
I want to tell my India friends that we hope you're alright, and your families are safe and you are with your loved ones. From the bottom of our hearts we hope you'll make it through this and believe that we across the border are just as shocked and horrified at this incredible scale of evil.
And I want to tell my Pakistani friends too step back and understand. For the next couple of days we are going to feel increasingly cornered and vulnerable as the international community is slowly going to drag our name and religion through the mud. This is not the time to be defensive. This is the time to reach out and set and example. We can yell ourselves hoarse trying to defend our religion and our country. But a quiet sign of support to the people across the fence will be far more effective in showing our humanity.
