If you ask a me what I think about when someone says India I think of home and I’m Pakistani, if you ask an Indian what comes to their mind when someone says Pakistan they think of home. That’s the beauty if these two countries. So similar yet in boundaries and conflicts.

ya idk how true this runs because I don’t really think of home when I think of India and I’m half muhajir..

"Zionism is racism. It is Jewish supremacist nationalism that led to the ethnic cleansing of a majority of the Palestinian people and the settler-colonial occupation of their land. Zionism is the cause of all Palestinian suffering today. If you are a zionist, then you are identifying yourself with this violent and racist ideology, which means you are a racist, too. Peace will only come with the eradication of zionism. Any attempt to obfuscate on this point is nothing more than apologia on behalf of this racism."
