Hatred in the Name of Patriotism

As tensions escalate between governments and armed forces of Pakistan and India, so does the hostile public sentiments on both sides of the border. There might be slight chances for war to break out, but the negativity that comes with it - relating war and patriotism to valor and honor, is upsetting. We kill and hate - to serve interests and agenda of those who benefit from it - which is never the common man. Giving up one's light of selfless love and empathy under false pretense of patriotism - what's so honorable about it.
