8 times India tried its best to improve India Pakistan Relationship.

8 times India tried its best to improve India Pakistan Relationship.

Relations between India and Pakistan have been complex and largely hostile due to a number of historical and political events.  But India has always been helpful to Pakistan and has never ever done a terrorist attack or any act that bothers Pakistanis but pak has rarely forwarded his helping hand to India.

Look at the instances when India helped Pakistan keeping our relations aside:

1. Surprise visit of PM Modi to Pakistan

Modi and  Sharif held a brief conversation  at the climate change talks in Paris late last month, part of efforts to restart a peace dialogue plagued by attacks and long-standing distrust.
As relations between the two countries were at a low and Modi’s visit was seen as a baby step towards improvements in ties. The two countries recently decided to launch a comprehensive dialogue after Modi-Sharif meet in Paris.

2. Sushma Swaraj gesture for Pak

Swaraj has been sympathetic towards many Pakistani nationals who have sought medical visas from India for the treatment of their kins, despite the growing strain in the relationship between India and Pakistan over a host of issues. Swaraj took to her twitter handle and announced that medical visas would be issued to two Pakistani nationals for liver plant surgeries, one child for an eye cancer surgery and another for a bone marrow transplant.

3. Sudheendra Kulkarni asks India to financially help Pakistan

The former political advisor of ex-Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and activist and columnist Sudheendra Kulkarni while speaking to India Today TV in Mumbai suggested that in order to start a new era of relations with Pakistan, India should financially help Pakistan in its difficult times.

4. Mani Shankar Aiyar On Imran Khan’s Victory

For us in India, the near-universal rejection of Pakistan’s religion-based parties is perhaps the most significant outcome of this election – for it demonstrates (once again) that far from being partisans of fanatical Islamic terrorists, Pakistanis, by and large, reject religious extremism and terror politics. The mainstream of Pakistan’s public opinion is remarkably like India’s: deeply religious but very wary of basing politics on religion, and wedded to the ballot rather than the bullet. If India and Indians would learn that key lesson, it might open the door to meaningful discussion with Pakistan on some via media to sort out our issues with them.

5. 2005 Earthquake in Pakistan

 India has sent 25 tonnes of relief material to Pakistanincluding food, blankets and medicine. Big Indian companies such as Infosys have offered aid up to $226,000. On October 12, an Ilyushin-76 cargo plane ferried across seven truckloads (about 82 tons) of army medicines, 15,000 blankets and 50 tents and returned to New Delhi. A senior airforce official also stated that they had been asked by the Indian government to be ready to fly out another similar consignment. On October 14, India dispatched the second consignment to relief material to Pakistan, by train through the Wagah Border. The consignment includes 5,000 blankets, 370 tents, 5 tons of plastic sheets and 12 tons of medicine. The third consignment is of medicine and relief material is being readied and will be sent shortly, also by train. India also pledged $25 million as aid to Pakistan. India opened the first of three points at Chakan Da Bagh, in Poonch, on the Line of Control (LoC) between India and Pakistan for the 2005 Kashmir earthquake relief work.

6. Yemen Crisis

The two countries’ humanitarian moves come on the sidelines of an escalating conflict in Yemen.
Abdul Basit, Pakistan’s ambassador to India, said the cooperation will play a significant role in normalising relations between the two countries.

7. J&K Floods

The Indian Army did not only rescue Indian nationals but also Pakistani nationals those were stuck in Indian Administered Kashmir.

8. Pakistani boy who crossed border

Amid high tension between the two countries, the Border Security Force (BSF) handed over a Pakistani boy to Pak Rangers after he accidentally crossed over to the Indian side.
