One Talks about Human Rights, the other faces Violation of it.
One talks about Justice,the other faces injustice every second.
One has peace, the other faces unrest from dawn to dusk. @IndiasMuslims @JamiaMilliaUni @BBCUrdu @trtworld
This is pure genius. Such a poetic way of comparing the two worlds. Juxtaposing plight of war ridden nations to the privileged lives of the very nations playing an indirect or direct role in others misery!— Sheheryar Rasul (@SheheryarRasul) January 18, 2020
