PEACE is a delicate plant that requires continual care. This is especially true when two neighbors who have a strained relationship try to work out their disagreements. The plant dies when their efforts are poor, lack sincerity, or lose impetus owing to mutual suspicion. A new seed is planted, and the cycle of haphazard efforts and inevitable failures repeats itself. Unfortunately, this has been the history of the Pakistan-India peace effort.
Nonetheless, peace attempts must continue due to certain unalterable and unavoidable realities. For their own security, wealth, and advancement, they must create peaceful and collaborative ties as neighbors. Despite numerous conflicts, neither country has been able to achieve its goals through war or bloodshed.
So far, the ceasefire has held, but there are widespread fears that the promise engendered by the announcement is quickly fading. The two countries’ relations are deteriorating. This worry has led us to propose the following suggestions aimed at consolidating the ceasefire gains while also achieving additional concrete objectives.
Terrorism, racism, and extremism are among the “fundamental issues and concerns that have the potential to disrupt peace,” according to both Pakistan and India. Similarly, minorities’ rights must be maintained at all costs.

The Pakistan-India rivalry in Afghanistan has destabilized the entire region, it is no secret.
