    We have been fighting wars and wars and killing our own citizens from the time British handed over this country to locals. After that, we blame everybody in the world for that, whether UK, USA, UN, Ban Ki Moon, India, UNHRC, Obama, Europeans etc.... without knowing that these are our own creations.
