Fighting anywhere is not fine and totally lacks humanity. But taking the neighboring fights to the ground of some other country is really shameful. This incident doesn’t do any good to anyone neither creating a whole havoc did any good. Between both the countries. It only made fun of their citizens on an international platform.
This chaos has turned out to be a great medium on social media to circulate and make fun about. How the grudges between neighbors Pakistan and Afghanistan has become so big. That their citizens are in a state to slit out each other.
