Pakistani girl congratulates Narendra Modi for UP win, pleads him to restore peace

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who led the BJP to a landslide victory in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election, recently received support, laudation and a plea for peace from across the border in Pakistan.

While it is not exactly a step towards peaceful resolution by the neighbouring government, a letter, written by an 11-year-old girl, appeals to Modi to restore harmony between the two nations in order to “win more elections in the future.”

Aqeedat Naveed, a school student from Lahore, implored the governments of India and Pakistan to refrain from buying bullets and guns in order to restore peace. “Both countries should resolve that they will not buy guns, but will provide free medicines to hundreds of thousands of ailing people of both the nations,” she said.

Addressing Modi, Aqeedat, daughter of a Lahore University professor, said "you have won the hearts of Indian people, therefore you won the election in UP".

She had earlier written letters to India’s External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, to wish her a ‘speedy recovery’ when she was hospitalised recently with kidney failure.
