As tensions continue between India and Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto’s son Bilawal has tweeted an anti-war message along with a video for both the countries. Bilawal attended a meeting called by Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday to discuss the situation vis-a-vis India. 

According to media reports, Bilawal slammed Sharif and said there was no military solution to the Kashmir issue, while also questioning the Pak PM’s foreign policy posturing, saying it is creating a climate of hostility.

According to International Business Times, Bilawal reportedly said his grandfather Zulfikar Ali Bhutto "retrieved Pakistan's land from Indian occupation and secured the release of thousands of prisoners of wars...in 1971 through assertive diplomacy and aggressive foreign policy." He added, "This is how we can achieve our diplomatic goals."

The Indian Army launched surgical strikes across LoC in response to the Uri attacks on September 18 which had left 18 Indian soldiers martyred.
