All the Indians on this forum or forums in general are those who are already very interested in military and strategic affairs and jingoistic. They form less than 0.00001% of the population.There is a lot of truth in that
(few exceptions and sane Indians aside) Pretty much all of the Indians on this forum and the ones I know are running around with their tails on fire.
Elections speeches of BJP and RSShites do show Pakistan as an entity sets so many BJP tails on fire.
The average Indian does not care at all about the border firings.
The only time they will actually care is when someone says that more Indians are being killed by Pakistan on the border than vice-versa. As long as the average Indians know or feel that more Pakistanis are dying than Indians, they will not bother even 1%. Most Indians are almost completely desensitized to Pakistani deaths. As sad as that is, it is also the reality.
So the difference of thought crops up when Pakistanis analyze Indian political scenario. For Pakistanis, Modi is all about a couple of aggressive statements and border shootings. That affects them more being a fragile economy and small geographically. Border issues tend to become big issues in Pakistan. And so they think it must also be a big issue in India and a major vote pulling issue.
For Indians, Modi talking about border is simply a side issue. The Motivation-Hygiene theory is applicable here. If Modi talks about the border a couple of times, it fetches him no extra popularity, but not saying those issues will cost him some popularity because that will make him appear aloof and callous.
For most Indians and for Modi - 99% of his energy and his focus and his statements are on the issue of economy and reforms and business. There are extremely ambitious targets to achieve in those segments on which Modi has staked his personal and political reputation.
Its a lot like how Indians kept talking about Khobragade incident as though it was a major thing for USA. But for US government it was a very very small issue and most US newspapers relegated it to the back pages. For Indians it was a big issue, for US, it was a small issue. We thought it was a big issue for them. The same is the case with Pakistan.
