Laughter is the best medicine?
Earlier this morning, Indian war jets crossed into our Line of Control in Pakistan patrolled Kashmir.
Indian Air Force violated Line of Control. Pakistan Air Force immediately scrambled. Indian aircrafts gone back. Details to follow.

With alleged reports of hundreds of casualties and hysteria on social media, Pakistanis were absolutely shaken following the uncertainty of the damage caused and the possible damage to come. However, Pakistanis have a very specific way of dealing with most crisis situations and it is quite unmistakable. As usual,
Pakistanis cannot stop feeling sad for the trees that were lost after India crossed the LOC.
Thoughts go out to the families of the trees that lost their lives in a deadly air strike by India.
Rest In Photosynthesis.

Now for some context, when the jets were making their way out of our territory, they apparently dropped a ‘payload’ on their way out.
This is the difference between "300 Kg" Bomb vs 1000 Kg Bomb dropped by Indian Jets during so called #Surgicalstrike2 by IAF… Only trees have been destroyed #IndiaAgainstTreePlantation pic.twitter.com/4f8zkPNtpr

Most of these images basically just showed a bunch of trees in Kashmir completely thrashed. So, in lieu of the fallen trees,
Pakistanis just couldn’t help themselves in hilariously mourning the lives of our leafy friends.

Honestly, I love this country.
We do not wish to make fun of an otherwise critical situation. We, just as the rest of the country is taking these events very seriously however in true Pakistani fashion, we’re doing it with a joke in tow.
Have you seen the jokes around the trees? What do you think about the situation with India? Let us know in the comments below.
