Pakistani media eulogises Ramya

New Delhi: Kannada actor-turned politician Ramya, who was recently in the middle of a controversy over sedition charges regarding her "Pakistan is not hell" comment, has become an overnight media celebrity in Pakistan. 
Most of Pakistan's print and TV media gave priority to her comments and its consequences.
The 'Dawn' — a renowned Pakistani newspaper — published a story with the headline, "Sedition case against Indian actress for praising Pakistan." This article invited numerous comments from readers. 
On one hand, The Daily Pakistan went ahead with the headline, “Indian actress says won't apologise for pro-Pakistan comment", while on other, The Daily Times headlined its story as, "Dear you: Pakistan is not hell. Respectfully yours, Ramya". 
It is really interesting to see how the readers of such articles positively responded by saying how they love both India and Pakistan. 
One comment said, "Indo-Pak should not drag ordinary people into conflict."
Another reader commented, "I'm a British-Pakistani and had visited India couple of years ago and found that when I took a plane from Lahore to India, I had taken off and landed at the same place. The country is beautiful and people are just as beautiful and like us and no border can divide us just these so called politicians play with human feelings-Love you India, Love you Pakistan".
With positive camaraderie over the issue, it is another testimony to the fact that while there are sceptics about the relationship between the two neighbouring countries, there are many more voices of harmony that resonate in the air.
