Indian and Pakistani netizens took no time to take jabs at the political leaders and celebrities on opposite sides, especially considering the current atmosphere of conflict between the two nations.
Both New Delhi and Islamabad are at each others’ throat since India revoked the special status enjoyed by Jammu and Kashmir state on 5 August.
Pakistan, which also claims Kashmir, came out strongly against the Indian decision and in protest expelled its envoy to Islamabad, downsized its diplomatic mission in New Delhi, suspended trade and snapped communication links.
Kashmir has been a bone of contention since the two countries gained freedom from British colonial rule in 1947. Both control part of Kashmir but claim in full. The rivals fought three wars since then, two over Kashmir.
