- I am not exposed enough to comprehend and comment on how exactly political parties and leaders in other countries showcase their countenance towards matters of national importance and especially, concerning grave issues that might otherwise overwhelm and endanger the very existence of the nation. However, logical reasoning dictates presenting a unified stand amidst challenging circumstances largely mitigating as also succeeding in altering the general perception of the discerning lot consisting of common citizens. Intelligentsia, experts, bigots, and critics alike also come along during such occasions.

- Similarly, all elected representatives at various levels are expected to further people’s interests by setting aside differences and channelize every available resource/energy to service the nation’s larger interest. Therefore, imbibing a rational understanding of the emergent situations should force all parties irrespective of party affiliations to join hands and present a unifying picture for the benefit of citizens peremptorily as also pre-emptively staving off enemy challenges. Modern-day warfare based on soft-is as effective as conventional military firepower to act as effective deterrence. Any cleavage visible in the unity of the nation’s polity will be exploited by the enemy well versed in fast-evolving modern warfare.
- Under normal circumstances, there might be considering allowing bickering and one-upmanship between the ruling dispensation and opposition parties, but when it comes to projecting unity against evil enemy designs, there is no question of compromise and dilution in projecting unity. A divided nation at times of emergency situations exposes itself to the dangers of being seized. All countries irrespective of the mode of governance will see diverse political fraternity stand by the government in tackling the challenges. Indulging in exploitation to gain traction when the country is bombarded with tribulations is a big no-no.
- I am sure many of the intelligent, prudent, and discerning lot not swayed by emotions, bias, or for that matter, myopic contemplations based on religion, caste, creed, gender will readily subscribe to the above-professed view in its entirety. There should be no place for ambiguity or doubtful visage when it comes to existential crisis bogging the nation. There should also be no place for narrow-minded thinking that goes against the prevalent general sentiment by carving out a diabolical narrative affecting the very existence of the entity. Note that our identity is derived from being associated with the country of our subsistence.
- Undeniably, upholding the honor of the nation is every single citizen’s responsibility and fulsome efforts should be undertaken to ensure nothing even remotely resembling a small besmirch harms our country’s reputation. Wearing the nationality proudly on our shoulders cannot be construed as mere positioning to gain attention. Therefore, political leaders representing citizens in the governance, even if it is in the capacity of opposition, should possess clarity on the matter communicating in no uncertain terms to one and all. The ruling dispensation’s folly can be dissected to ensure accountability later.
