Prime Minister Modi's Surprise Visit To Pakistan Makes Airwaves

By Haadia Paracha | 25 Dec, 2015

Is it the birthday of Quaid-e-Azam, the janam-din of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the wedding bells of the Sharifs grand-daughter, the Christmas miracle or the alleged under-cover sale of the Karachi Steel Mill that stirred this storm in a teacup? Every machli-house to vegetable vendors to florists are trying to get a piece of the pie. The think-tanks are thinking less about strategic planning and more along the lines of gourmet cooking. Is Mr. Modi travelling to Pakistan for another selfie?

Earlier today, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced his surprise visit to Pakistan over Twitter, consequently on the birth of baba-e-qaum Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

Suffice to say, Twitter was taken by a storm

 

 

The sudden announcement also received mixed reviews from across the border

 

 

Some stated this was “Salgira” Diplomacy

 

Some were pleasantly amused at the sudden turn of events

 

Moving past the incredulous reaction from the masses, India-Pakistan’s diplomatic love-hate relationship needs a lot of work. Here’s to hoping this impromptu meeting creates an atmosphere of peace and dialogue on both ends. Pakistan is an important player in the Economic Corridor and thus, any initiative towards peace should be welcomed with open arms.
