Saravana, that is because, we, SDRE baniya Hindus love life while the TFTA martial Muslims, especially in Pakistan, love death.
But, I think, apart from that, there is a also a deeper issue at play here. For the Pakistani leaders of the pre-Partition days, creating the state was an end in itself. They never paid any attention to building it. They felt everybody (read the Americans & the British) would rush-in to support them for geo-strategic & geo-political reasons and this support can be turned against the eternal enemy, India. Pakistan is a state organized by force, of force and for force. It is being overtaken these days by a bigger internal force of a purer variety. The earlier leaders of Pakistan saw no higher order to statehood than to merely create the state, by whatever fraudulent and violent means, and maintain it to just survive while turning their full fury against India. This has continued until now. As the divide became wider and wider between the two nations, Pakistan became increasingly desperate and resorted to recklessness. This has led them to the current situation where the purer variety wants to push its own agenda both against the state and the others, again recklessly.
India cannot be a reckless state because it has an ingrained dharmic
approach in spite of hundreds of years of cruelty and subjugation by rabid inimical forces. Therefore, we look at things differently.
But, I certainly believe that we still owe Pakistan some hard slaps that we missed to deliver at appropriate times.
