Pakistanis behaved stupidly in celebrating India's defeat

I was sad to see on YouTube many Pakistanis celebrating India's defeat in the World Cup cricket final by Australia, as if Pakistan had won the World Cup.

Many Pakistanis distributed sweets, danced, and did other foolish things

These silly and misguided people did not realise that it was their own defeat too, since India and Pakistan are really one country, with a common culture, and were one for 500 years (since the time of Mughal Emperor Akbar). We were temporarily and artificially divided by that British swindle called Partition in 1947, on the basis of the bogus two-nation theory, to keep Hindus and Muslims fighting each other, and thus to keep us weak and backward. But we are sure to reunite one day, like West and East Germany, or North and South Vietnam, under a secular government with modern-minded leaders determined to transform our subcontinent into a highly modern, highly industrialised, and highly prosperous region, with its people enjoying high standard of living, and leading decent lives.

When Pakistan was defeated by England in the T20 World Cup cricket final on 13th November 2022, I called Indians who celebrated it stupid, since it was really India's defeat too ( since we are one nation )

Throughout the World Cup series, I supported the Pakistani team, regarding it my team too, and in the India-Pakistan match I supported both teams.

So Pakistanis, it is high time you woke up.
