The display of aggression during the lowering of the flags at sunset on the Wagah-Attari border has been criticised by Pakistani and Indian legislators at the 11th    round of the Pakistan-India Legislators and Public Officials Dialogue held in Dubai on March 7. The legislators noted that the display at the border was “ugly and vulgar”.

Logically, the display – that provides a form of entertainment for hundreds of people who queue at the border – does nothing to broker mature or friendly ties between both nations. Therefore, legislatures and public officials from both sides should attempt to bring the ceremony to an end once and for all.
