Why can't they just get along? Nisid presents the main reasons for the distrust between the two governments which sadly is still pretty much the same after 70 odd years since their creation Both founding fathers Nehru and Jinnah almost completely distrusted each other and did their utmost to destabilize their nemesis India using their superior army while Pakistani resorted to proxy a tribalmujahedin model to counter India's army Unfortunately the same formula is employed even today why because it still works and I would argue that it has gotten worse with the rise of RSSBJP government in its second term So if Pakistanis started usin
